    I am seeking applicants for an 18 month post-doctoral fellow position at the University of Florida in the Wildlife Ecology and Conservation program and the Florida Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, to start in May 2021 (or soon thereafter). The Post-doc will primarily focus on developing a prioritization plan for the US Fish and Wildlife southeast regional bird conservation effort. In response to recent published research that North America has lost up to 3 Billion birds in the last 50 years the FWS wants to design a plan for prioritizing migratory bird conservation actions and research. Our focus is on developing a framework to categorize public trust bird species into conservation classifications, and for developing plans to improve conservation status of public trust species. The work will primarily involve using the tools of structured decision making to understand FWS objectives and design value functions that assess alternative management strategies. Successful applicants will have a Ph.D. in Wildlife Conservation, Ecology, Decision Science or a related field. Preference will be given to applicants with elicitation and facilitation experience and some knowledge or experience with Structured Decision Making. For more information regarding the position, please contact Conor P. McGowan, conor.mcgowan@ufl.edu.

    Qualifications: Successful applicants will have a Ph.D. in Wildlife Conservation, Ecology, Decision Science or a related field. Preference will be given to applicants with elicitation and facilitation experience and some knowledge or experience with Structured Decision Making.
