We are hiring a quantitative disease ecologist position at the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center. This is a GS-11 term position for 1 to 4 years depending on performance and funding. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with Dr. Paul Cross to develop disease ecology studies relevant to Federal and State agencies. Focal project areas may include: elk, moose, wolf and bighorn sheep disease issues, the integration of genetic and ecological data, predicting rate and direction of disease spread and optimizing surveillance strategies in wildlife-livestock disease systems. Not only is Bozeman a fantastic place to live, but we also have a great disease ecology group (http://bzndiseaselab.org/) that works across academia, NGOs, and government. PhD-level experience in wildlife disease ecology and quantitative methods is required.
