TWO INSTRUCTOR OPENINGS
APPLICATION DEADLINE APPROACHING (January 15)
3-WEEK FIELD COURSES IN WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AND DISEASE ECOLOGY

The University of Pittsburgh’s Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology (PLE) seeks qualified applicants for two instructor positions for 3-week undergraduate courses in Disease Ecology (June 22 to July 10, 2015) and Wildlife Management (July 13 to July 31, 2015).  These positions are outside of the tenure stream.

These are field-station courses with large field components to provide an introduction to wildlife management or disease ecology.  Each course has an expected enrollment of 15 undergraduates and is part of a substantial program of undergraduate education and ecological research at PLE on the beautiful shores of Pymatuning Lake in northwestern Pennsylvania.  For more information about PLE, visit our web site (http://www.biology.pitt.edu/facilities/pymatuning).

The successful instructors should possess a Ph.D. and an excellent knowledge of either disease ecology or wildlife management.  The compensation package includes reimbursement for travel to PLE, room and board on the lake, and a 3-week salary of $4,000 to $6,000 (depending on rank, ranging from Assistant to Full Professor).

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV, and a list of three references (via e-mail) to Chris Davis, Assistant Director of the Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology (chd47@pitt.edu<mailto:chd47@pitt.edu>). The deadline for applications is January 15 or until the positions are filled.
