    NSF Post-doc available

    We are currently recruiting for a post-doctoral fellow in the lab. We are an inter-disciplinary lab, studying the interactions between community ecology and evolutionary biology using cutting-edge statistical techniques. We are looking for someone with experience in community ecology or evolutionary biology, who is interested in analysing the co-occurrences and associations of many taxonomic groups with the NEON data. The position is fully-funded, and includes money to travel to conferences and working groups. The one-page summary of the funded NSF MacroSystems proposal is available at this link, and the majority of the the detailed proposal summary is available at this link.

    What you would be doing. Modelling the eco-phylogenetic structure of the species at NEON sites to better understand, and predict, the evolutionary and ecological constraints on community assembly across North America. More details are provided in the links above.

    Desirable skills. Strong statistical skills and knowledge of R, and a strong background in at least one of community ecology, trait macro-evolution, biogeography, or eco-phylogenetics. You should have a strong publication record, be comfortable working in an inter-disciplinary environment, and have good oral and written communication skills. More details are given on the job posting at this link.

    Location. The lab is located at Utah State university (USA). Surrounded by beautiful national parks and rivers on all sides, it’s the perfect place to study biology (and go hiking, skiing, climbing, swimming…)! If the outdoors isn’t enough for you, the bright lights of Salt Lake City (host of the 2002 Winter Olympics) are right on your doorstep.

    How to apply. Please fill out the application at Utah State University’s website by clicking this link. We need someone to start in the position as soon as possible: the position will be filled on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. We welcome applications from anyone from any background: regardless of ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, sexuality, or any form of impairment, you will be welcome in the lab.
