  • Post doc in Spatial and Population Ecology

    • Employer: Peery Lab, University of Wisconsin - Madison
      Location: Madison, WI
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 06/01/2019
      Open Until Filled: No

    I am seeking outstanding applicants for a 2-year post doc position in spatial and population ecology with an emphasis on the conservation of California spotted owls.  The successful applicant will be mentored by Associate Professor Zach Peery (http://labs.russell.wisc.edu/peery/) and housed in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology (FWE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


    The post-doc’s research will involve studying the foraging, habitat, and population ecology of spotted owls in California in relation to landscape-scale vegetation conditions, disturbance regimes, and forest management using a combination of GPS tagging, population analysis, and remotely-sensed vegetation data. Work will be done in close cooperation with federal and state agencies as well as non-governmental organizations and private landowners, and will have direct implications for regional-scale conservation planning and forest restoration efforts. Additional research components could be added depending on shared interests and funding opportunities.

    Applicants must possess a PhD in wildlife ecology, conservation biology, or closely related field by the start date. Applicants must also have a strong publication record and be self-motivated to conduct cutting edge conservation research.

    The position will start June 1, 2019, with some field work in California in the summer. The annual salary will be $50,000 with health insurance included.

    To be considered for this position, please send a cover letter outlining your interests and research background, a curriculum vitae, and contact information for three professional references (name, email, phone, address) as either a PDF or MS Word file to mpeery@wisc.edu with ‘Post doc Application’ in the subject line. Application materials must be submitted by Feb 15, 2019 to receive full consideration. 

    For further information, please contact Dr. Zach Peery via email.
