  8. Symposium and Workshop on “Herons of the World” at the 2016 Waterbird Society Meeting New Bern, North Carolina, USA, 20-23 September 2016 The Heron Specialist Group (HeronConservation) of the IUCN will be hosting a Symposium and Workshop focussing on the “Biology and Conservation of Herons of the World” at the 2016 Waterbird Society meeting in New Bern, North Carolina, USA, 20-23 September 2016. All heron researchers are invited to attend, but we are especially hopeful that those working on heron species in Africa, Asia and SE Asia, Central and South America and Australia will be able to attend. Our goal is to bring together heron biologists from across the world to join in this meeting to promote heron conservation, discuss recent research and foster greater collaboration amongst researchers. In our Workshop, we will be discussing current conservation strategies for herons, updating species’ status (where possible) and discussing new technologies for heron research. Dr. Jim Kushlan will be presenting a Plenary on the History of Heron Conservation. We envision three levels of participation for this meeting: 1. Formal oral presentations at the Symposium, 2. Informal presentations and group discussions at the Workshop and 3. Poster presentations and discussions at the Poster Session. If you would like to receive updated information on this event or if you are interested in participating in the meeting, please contact Chip Weseloh (chip.weseloh@ec.gc.ca). Please also indicate your heron species of interest and your area of research. HeronConservation members who are assisting in organizing these events include: Chip Weseloh, Canada; Clay Green, USA; Dale Gawlik, USA; John Brzorad, USA; Cathy King, Germany; Nellie Tsipoura USA; Sara Schweitzer USA.
  9. OPEN POSITION: Kushlan Chair in Waterbird Biology & Conservation at the University of Miami The Kushlan Chair's research is to focus on the biology and conservation of waterbirds (including marine birds), primarily at the organismal level. It is desirable that the incumbent use (or use in collaboration) modern integrative approaches such as physiological, genetic, isotopic, or molecular methods. The research program is expected to be extramurally funded and at the cutting edge of important questions on the biology and conservation of waterbirds. The chosen individual will hold joint appointments at the University of Miami: 1) In the Biology Department in the College of Arts and Sciences, an integrated biology department in which the Kushlan Chair will be the third of four endowed chairs to be held by an ornithologist, creating an outstanding opportunity for synergy. 2) In the Marine Biology and Fisheries Department at the renowned Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences which offers a rich variety of research venues. Applications received by December 3, 2012 will receive the fullest attention. Send applications (Letter of interest, research and teaching statements, CV and referee names, as a single pdf file) tokushlanchair@bio.miami.edu Applications are particularly encouraged from women and minorities.
