Postdoc Opportunities

 

UP TO TWO GENERAL POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN ECOLOGY AND/OR GLOBAL HEALTH

 

DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME

 

Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral research positions in ecology and/or global health.  The candidates should have interest and experience in either infectious diseases, climate change, applied ecology, macrosystem ecology, microbiome ecology, or meta-analyses, or modeling, and will be members of the laboratory of Dr. Jason Rohr (https://www.jasonrohrlab.com; https://biology.nd.edu/people/jason-rohr/; http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=yaRksUAAAAAJ&hl=en) in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN; https://biology.nd.edu/).  The lab consists of an outdoor mesocosm facility (with >150 mesocosms), indoor aquatic facilities, a wet lab for standard ecological and genomic sample processing, ample computational capacity and space, four current postdocs, three PhD students, and a lab manager.  The candidates could be interested in conducting experiments (lab, field, or mesocosm), working with existing datasets, developing mathematical models, or some combination of these activities.  The two positions could fall under existing grants in the lab or could be funded by non-grant related funds.  The projects the postdocs will work on will be determined through discussions with Dr. Rohr and other lab members.  Thus, we are ultimately looking for the most promising and productive candidates whose skills most complement the present research team in the laboratory.  The candidates must be highly organized, resourceful, creative, independent, hardworking, capable of working as part of a team, and competent with manuscript writing and communicating science.  Most importantly, the candidates must be proficient working in R.  The position has numerous opportunities to collaborate with members of the Rohr lab, other laboratories at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame’s Environmental Change Initiative (https://environmentalchange.nd.edu/) and the Eck Institute of Global Health (https://globalhealth.nd.edu/), and other universities.  There is the potential of 2+ years of funding and the start date is flexible, but earlier start dates are preferred.  All applications received before 9/11 will receive full consideration.

 

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, brief statement of research interests (<2 pages), and list of references as a single pdf to Dr.

Jason Rohr (jrohr2@nd.edu) with the subject line of the email reading “Postdoc Application (insert last name)”. 

For example: Postdoc Application Smith. 

The position will remain open until filled
