POPULATION BIOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN is seeking applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in the Population Biology Program of Excellence.

The goal of the Population Biology-POE Postdoctoral Fellowship is to stimulate synergistic interactions between faculty and postdoctoral scholars interested in the broad area of Population Biology. Qualified candidates are required to develop a single, coherent 2-year research project under the guidance of two or more faculty advisors, one of whom must be in the Ecology, Evolution & Behavior (EEB) section in the School of Biological Sciences (http://biosci.unl.edu/research-specializations). The second advisor may be in the School of Biological Sciences (including EEB), the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ianrhome.unl.edu/colleges), Mathematics (http://www.math.unl.edu) or in another UNL department.  While in residence, the postdoctoral fellow will be expected to teach a graduate seminar on a topic of his/her choice (Year
1), and to help organize a local symposium (Year 2). Applications must include a CV, a 1-page description of previous or current research and a 2-3 page description of proposed research as well as a brief description of possible seminar and symposium topics. In addition, the applicant must arrange for two recommendation letters from non-UNL faculty, and one from each of the proposed UNL faculty sponsors (a total of 4 letters) to be  emailed to the address below.  The expected salary will be $45,000. The position does not include research funds so it is anticipated that these needs, if modest, can be met through contributions from the faculty sponsors and should be addressed in the proposal.

Application materials should be emailed to: Dr. Gwen Bachman at: gbachman1@unl.edu.  The subject line should read “Population Biology Post-doc application”.  Applications should be received by 15 April 2015 in order to ensure full consideration. We strongly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups. The University of Nebraska is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative action, equal opportunity, work-life balance, and dual careers. We assure responsible accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
