POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER - Bird and bat occupancy and occurrence modeling. We are seeking a motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct a study of bat and bird occupancy and movement in Northern California Sierra Nevada forests. The work is aimed at a suite of bats and at California Spotted Owls and Northern Goshawks. The postdoc will engage in all aspects of the ongoing study, and complete the synthesis for sensitive species from the region. Many of the data already are in-hand and they will be used to develop spatially explicit models and to evaluate factors with potential to influence future populations and management. Work will be conducted in collaboration with USDA National Forest biologists, students, and the Audubon Society and we anticipate a rapid series of influential publications. Research salary, benefits, and field operations are funded for approximately one year, with potential for extension. On-site or remote working arrangements are both acceptable. Applicants need to have completed a Ph.D. and possess a broad range of interests and associated skills. Research will require familiarity with geographic information systems, databases, and statistical tools, occupancy modeling, movement ecology, and model programming. The successful candidate must be able to communicate effectively in English, in public, and with a range of cooperators from private and public institutions. Applicants should email a brief letter of interest, CV, and the names and contact information for three references to Drs. Lisa Webb and Dylan Kesler at webbli AT missouri DOT edu and keslerd AT mac DOT com. For additional information please visit http://www.birdpop.org and http://www.snr.misso...ulty/webb-e.php.
