Postdoctoral Position in Trait-based Stream Ecosystem Ecology at Cornell University

19 Septembre 2012 , Rédigé par JMB Publié dans #Thèses - Post-doc - Emploi - Bourse

We are seeking candidates for a 3-yr postdoctoral position for a multi-institutional collaborative project EVOTRAC (Evolutionary Vulnerability and Trait Response to Altitude and Climate), funded through NSF’s Dimensions of Biodiversity Program.  EVOTRAC is a trait-based integrative project studying species vulnerability to climate change in temperate and tropical stream ecosystems, using physiological, population genetic, ecological and biogeochemical approaches.  More information on the project here.
The successful applicant will be based at Cornell University and will be part of an interdisciplinary research team composed of scientists from Cornell, Colorado State University, University of Nebraska, University of San Francisco Quito (Ecuador), and other institutions.  Field research will be focused at a series of sites along altitudinal gradients in the Andes and Rocky Mountains.  The successful applicant will be involved in characterizing organismal functional traits of aquatic biota including growth efficiencies, organismal stoichiometry, and trophic ecology and will oversee ecosystem experiments for evaluating functional trait responses to climate change.  
The start date is negotiable, preferably January 2013.  A Ph.D. with strong experience in aquatic community / ecosystem ecology is required at the time of appointment. The successful applicant must be able to function independently in Spanish-speaking settings and be interested in spending several months per year in Latin America.  Consideration of applications begins 1 October and will continue until the position is filled. 
To apply, please send by email a cover letter stating your research accomplishments and interests, curriculum vitae, representative publications, and the names and contact information for three references to: Dr. Alex Flecker (asf3@cornell.edu), Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.
