    Postdoctoral scholars


    Ellen Paul
    • Employer: University of Texas at Austin
      Location: Texas
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 04/15/2018
      Open Until Filled: No

    Two postdoctoral scholars for an initial term of 1 year with usual renewal to 2-3 years but the possibility of staying for 5 with an especially good fit.

     

    These scholars will need to be interested in facilitating interdisciplinary undergraduate research. A strong biostatistics background is required. There will be plenty of time for research. Please refer any interested parties to me with questions. Should be lots of fun.

     

    Postdoctoral Researcher
    University of Texas at Austin

     

    The Clarke Lab at the Jackson School of Geosciences seeks an innovative ornithologist or vertebrate paleontologist to join an active research group interested in the evolution of birds. The ideal postdoctoral candidate has a strong background in systematics, comparative methods and avian life history, anatomy or physiology. Strengths in other methods and questions relevant to study of the evolution of birds in deep time will also be considered.

     

    The postdoctoral appointment will involve active research, publication, and education activities directly related to an HHMI funded project concerning pioneering new approaches for interdisciplinary research training for undergraduate and graduate students. One major focus of our lab will be the evolution of the avian vocal organ in crown birds, an interest in this project is specifically desired.

     

    Specific expectations include: a desire to be deeply involved with further development and assessment of a novel research methods course for undergraduates and graduate students, to run a basic introduction to R module in the Spring course, co-supervising independent research related to your own and Clarke lab projects that will involve extended travel to a partner lab to collect data.

     

    The appointment is for an initial one-year term renewable upon progress review. The salary is ~$48,000 per year plus benefits. A PhD is required prior to the start of the appointment.

     

    Application materials include: 1. a CV; 2. an extended cover letter that should detail research interests and methodological approaches employed to date as well as, 3., a list of the names and full contact information for at least 3 references. Please address questions and the submitted application materials (as a single pdf with the subject “Postdoc.”) to Julia_Clarke@jsg.utexas.edu. The position is open effective immediately and will remain open until filled. The ideal start date is Sept 1.

     

    Application materials should be received April 15.

     

    UT Austin is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. The position is considered security sensitive; conviction verification conducted on applicant selected.

     

    Thank you!
