There is a call for PhD position at the Plant ecology department of Charles University. The place has extra funding from the STARS project and is aimed on role of plant phenology on niche differentiation. The deadline is 4th of February 2013. All information can be found at the STARS page:
There is also another botanical topic on plant-soil feedback in succession.
Two-year postdoc position in plant ecology
I am seeking a postdoc to work on a DFG-funded project on bias in the historical introduction of horticultural plants and its consequences for current naturalization patterns. The work will include the compilation and analysis of large data sets with historical data on introductions, functional traits and naturalization success of alien plants.
Cendrine Mony is looking for a postdoc in theoretical ecology for a 3-year postdoc position in Rennes in collaboration between the UMR ECOBIO (university of Rennes1) and INRIA (beginning in February 2013). The goal is to transfer ecological theories (such as the diversity/stability concepts or the ecological functioning of network-structured organisms or populations) to the development of innovative collaborative adaptive systems. It is part from a European project called diversify << Ecology-inspired software diversity for distributed adaptation in CAS >>.
There is currently an open PhD position in plant population genetics at the UFZ Halle, Department of Community Ecology. The project is about molecular and quantitative genetic variation in a wetland plant, and the relevance of this variation for ecological restoration. It is called "Evolutionary potential in functional traits of a wetland macrophyte (Juncus effusus) relevant for natural degradation of contaminants" More in the PDF.
University in Leuven offers great PhD project: "The impact of urbanization on microbial community structure, pollinator behavior and mating system in the late-flowering plant Linaria vulgaris."
Vazeni, radi bychom Vas upozornili na blizici se uzaverku Fulbright-Masarykova stipendia pro vyzkumne pobyty v USA (1.12.2012 na akademicky rok 2013/14).

Predpokladem ziskani stipendia je vedle kvalitniho vyzkumneho projektu take aktivni zajem o akademicky a verejny zivot.
I have several new positions that might be of interest for some in your 'networks':
First two new PhD positions on plant-related macroecology :
1: THE MACROECOLOGY OF FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY IN THE PALMS AND ITS LINK
TO MAMMAL DIVERSITY:
