Post Doctoral Appointments
Last Date to Apply
The two postdoctoral associates will work in one of two areas: (1) sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) or (2) geochemical and stable isotope proxies in lake sediments and paleoclimate reconstruction, and both will be involved with age-depth modeling from lake sediment cores collected in Southeast Alaska. Experience with pollen analysis is a plus. The postdocs will also take part in coordination and mentoring students, research and outreach activities, and course planning.
For the postdoc positions, required qualifications are a Ph.D. in either evolutionary biology, Earth science, or closely related fields, depending on which of the two positions is being applied for. Candidates must have excellent English writing and verbal communication skills, as well as an established record of productivity (i.e., producing peer reviewed publications) in areas relevant to the specific research. We are particularly looking for applicants with a relevant research background in one of the two fields: sedimentary ancient DNA/paleogenomics or geochemistry, and with an interest in working in an interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment. Proficiency in or a desire and willingness to learn scientific programming, bioinformatics, and/or statistics is required.
