The Royal Ontario Museum invites applications for a Wendy & Leslie Rebanks Fellowship to conduct postdoctoral research in the Department of Natural History of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. This is a two-year fellowship with an annual salary of $50,000 that provides Canadian citizens or permanent residents the opportunity to conduct research in one of Canada’s leading research institutions. This year we are seeking candidates interested in the phylogenetics and macroevolution of birds. The successful candidate will work full time in the lab of Associate Curator of Ornithology Dr. Santiago Claramunt. Projects would involve phylogenetic analysis of traditional and genomic data, and comparative and diversification analysis potentially incorporating phenotypic data from research specimens with the goal of answering major standing questions regarding the mechanisms and processes of evolutionary diversification.
Candidates should electronically submit a letter of application detailing their interest in the position, research experience, preferred start date (ideally in January 2020), names with contact details of three references, and a curriculum vitae to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application materials must be received by October 14, 2019 for consideration. We especially encourage applications from women and members of minority groups. For inquiries, contact Santiago Claramunt at email@example.com
