Population Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellowship


THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN is seeking applications for a 2-year
postdoctoral position in the Population Biology Program of Excellence.


The goal of the Population Biology-POE Postdoctoral Fellowship is to
stimulate synergistic interactions between faculty and postdoctoral
scholars interested in the broad area of Population Biology. We are seeking
applications from recent PhDs who show promise of conducting cutting edge
research related to, and expanding upon, faculty research areas in the
Ecology, Evolution & Behavior (EEB) section in the School of Biological
Sciences (http://biosci.unl.ed...specializations). The POE also
seeks to identify potential postdoctoral fellows who will enhance graduate
education, serve as a model for graduate students in career development,
and promote interactions among faculty at UNL. Qualified candidates are
required to submit a 2-3 page research proposal detailing the two-year
program of research to be completed under the guidance of a faculty member
in the Ecology, Evolution & Behavior (EEB) section in the School of
Biological Sciences. Applicants are encouraged to reach out to potential
faculty mentors before developing a proposal for additional guidelines and
suggestions. The position does not include research funds so the extent of
contributions from the faculty sponsor should be addressed in the proposal.
While in residence, the postdoctoral fellow will be expected to lead a
seminar, symposium or outreach project that will appeal to Population
Biologists across campus. Applications must include a CV, a 1-page
description of previous or current research and the description of proposed
research. In addition, the applicant must arrange for two recommendation
letters from non-UNL faculty, and one from the UNL faculty sponsor (a total
of 3 letters) to be emailed to the address below. The expected salary will
be $45,000 per year with a start date of August 19, 2018. Priority will be
given to applicants who have completed their degree and are new to UNL.
Research descriptions for past and current POE postdoctoral fellows can be
viewed at http://biosci.unl.ed...lation-biology/


Application materials should be emailed to: Dr. Johannes Knops at:
jknops2@unl.edu. The subject line should read “Population Biology Post-doc
application”. Applications should be received by March 1, 2018. We
anticipate notifying the successful applicant by April 1, 2018, with a
starting date of August 19 or later in 2018. We strongly encourage
applications from women and members of minority groups. The University of
Nebraska is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative
action, equal opportunity, work-life balance, and dual careers. We assure
responsible accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
