Postdoc in Global Change and Collective Behavior in Ants
We invite applications for a postdoctoral scientist to join a collaboration between Deborah Gordon (Stanford University) and Nate Sanders (University of Michigan) aimed at understanding how global change drivers influence collective behavior in ants. The position is available for up to two years contingent on availability of funding and continued satisfactory performance. The postdoc could be based at Stanford University, the University of Michigan, or, in some cases, elsewhere. But extensive field work should take place in at established field sites in California, Arizona, Mexico, and/or Michigan. There may be opportunities to develop additional independent research projects within the framework of the project. We are looking for people with experience in ant ecology or behavioral ecology, good analytical skills, and a demonstrated record of creative research as evidenced by papers in peer-reviewed journals. Candidates should hold, or soon have, a PhD. To apply, send, as a single PDF [saved as Lastname.Firstname.pdf], a cover letter, CV, a brief research statement summarizing previous research and outlining a potential project on the impacts of global change on collective behavior, and the names of three references to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
To receive full consideration, applications should be received by January 5, 2022. Review will continue until the position is filled. The ideal start date will be Spring 2022.
