Description
*Please note that applications will be reviewed as they are received. The Freshwater Community Ecology Lab is seeking a post-doctoral research associate to investigate drivers of fish distributions and population dynamics.

Primary job tasks include writing, working with collaborators, data management and manipulation, and quantitative modeling. The Freshwater Community Ecology Lab and Oklahoma Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
