  • Postdoctoral position focused on tracing animal migration with stable isotope approaches


    Melanie Colón
    • Employer: University of Florida
      Location: Gainesville, FL
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 01/14/2019
      Open Until Filled: No

    A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Hannah Vander Zanden’s lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Florida.  Current research focuses on tracing animal migration with stable isotope approaches.  Recent efforts include evaluating the spatial distributions, population trends and migratory connectivity of sea turtles; improving the analytical approaches for tracing animal movement with stable isotope data; and delineating the origin of wildlife killed at renewable energy facilities.  While there may be opportunities to contribute to ongoing projects in the lab, candidates are encouraged to propose independent projects related to animal movement or trophic ecology within the Gulf of Mexico.  Projects that utilize stable isotope methods are of interest, but those skills are not necessary.

    Start date: Negotiable, but available immediately
    Location: University of Florida, Gainesville, FL
    Required qualifications: PhD in Biology, Ecology, Marine Science or similar field
    Description: This position will consist of a full-time, twelve-month appointment with a one-year renewal upon satisfactory performance.

    Please send the following materials as a single PDF file: 1) cover letter communicating the applicant’s interest and qualifications for the position, 2) current CV, 3) one-page research statement describing potential research projects; 4) names and contact information of three professional references.  Review of applications will begin on January 14, 2019, and the position will be open until filled.

    Send application materials and other inquiries to Hannah Vander Zanden via email (hvz@ufl.edu) with “GoM Postdoc” in the subject line.
