Faculty Position in Large Mammal Ecology/International Conservation at University of Florida

University of Florida, Gainesville, FL
This position is a 12-month tenure-accruing appointment (Assistant Professor) available in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation (WEC) at the University of Florida (40% teaching, 60% research appointment). The successful candidate will: (1) develop an international research program that investigates topics such as factors that drive distribution and dynamics of large mammal populations at the landscape scale, human-wildlife conflict, and/or sustainable harvest management strategies for large mammals; (2) teach one undergraduate and one graduate course/year; and (3) develop an international experiential component for the teaching program for undergraduate or graduate students. The research and graduate training program of the successful candidate will focus on wildlife conservation in developing countries, as well as address issues with large mammals in Florida. The faculty member will play a leadership role in linking WEC’s programs with international conservation and funding organizations, international programs across UF’s campus, and programs that manage and conserve large mammals in Florida. Qualifications: Candidates must possess a doctorate or foreign equivalent in wildlife biology, ecological or biological sciences, or related natural resources discipline; evidence of scholarship and in-depth knowledge of wildlife ecology and conservation; experience with research and conservation of large mammals in developing countries; willingness to work with resource agencies, NGOs, and stakeholders; and commitment to teach and inspire undergraduate and graduate students. Postdoctoral experience and experience with international NGOs are desirable. For more information contact Search and Screen Committee Chair Lyn Branch (BranchL@UFL.EDU), or for information and to apply, go to to http://explore.jobs.ufl.edu/cw/en-us/job/493151. The University of Florida is an Equal Opportunity Institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff.Paru le: mercredi 26 août 2015

Poste de chercheur postdoctoral en écologie des populations/communautés

The University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas, USA
Dr Daniel Reuman is recruiting into his lab in the University of Kansas Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. The broad research goal of the lab is to mechanistically understand and predict the consequences of human impacts such as global warming on populations, communities, and ecosystems. We use quantitative tools and collaborate widely with field and laboratory workers to explain observations, confront theory with data, and make predictions. Example projects can be found at http://www.reumanlab.res.ku.edu/. Two to three years of funding are currently available. Several diverse opportunities exist to contribute to and take leadership roles in ongoing research directions in collaboration with current lab members and a network of collaborators in the USA and Europe, and to develop new directions.Paru le: mardi 26 mai 2015

Opportunités de maîtrises et de doctorats


Ph.D. en Biologie évolutive

Université du Québec à Rimouski
Le laboratoire de France Dufresne est à la recherche d’un (e) candidat(e) au doctorat. Les différents thèmes de recherche du laboratoire incluent : 1) conséquences évolutives des transitions vers l’asexualité et de polyploïdie 2) plasticité phénotypique et adaptations locales (température, UV, salinité) chez les daphnies subarctiques, 3) les effets des accumulations de mutations sur le phénotype mitochondrial. Le modèle utilisé est la puce d’eau Daphnia pulex qui est un modèle de choix en génomique écologique de par sa grande répartition, sa sensibilité aux stresseurs de l’environnment et du fait que de nombreux outils génomiques sont disponibles. Les projets utilisent différentes approches : terrain, expériences en laboratoires, techniques moléculaires et génomiques Début : idéalement septembre 2015 Conditions d’admissibilité : - Avoir complété une maîtrise ou son équivalent Compétences recherchées : - Bonnes connaissances en génétique évolutive - Intérêt pour les techniques moléculaires et la bio-informatique - Bonnes capacités de rédaction scientifique Pour poser votre candidature, veuillez faire parvenir une lettre de présentation expliquant brièvement vos intérêts, un cv et une copie de vos relevés de notes universitaires accompagnés des coordonnées de deux références à : France_dufresne@uqar.ca http://www.uqar.ca/specialistes/equipe/dufresne-france/Paru le: lundi 06 juillet 2015

Écologie et sociobiologie d'un système prédateur-proie (Loup-ongulé)

Memorial University of Newfoundland
Riding Mountain National Park (RMNP) in Manitoba is among the best-studied large mammal communities in Canada. Peer-reviewed research has been produced from the RMNP system for the last 80 years: from Green (1933) and Banfield (1949) to Paquet (1990s) and our recent work. RMNP is a rich system within which to simultaneously ask fundamental and applied ecological and evolutionary questions. Over the coming years and primarily using GPS collars, this project will see all wolf packs and >80% of the elk monitored in one of RMNP’s elk subpopulations, creating a near-perfect spatial and temporal picture of predatory-prey interactions between wolves and their primary prey. Furthermore, the successful applicant will have access to our considerable collection of historical individual- and population-level data on space use and population densities of elk, moose, white-tailed deer and wolves (see our papers for examples). As a result, this project will provide excellent opportunities for both academic and professional advancement. Because it is a PhD-level project, the successful applicant will be expected to develop her or his own ideas and research plan in collaboration with the research team. In the Wildlife Evolutionary Ecology Lab we feel strongly that novel biological ideas are derived from interacting directly with our study species and system, and the successful applicant will be expected to spend considerable amounts of time in the field, supported by an excellent team of biologists at RMNP. The successful applicant will be required to actively investigate kill- and den-sites and to fly telemetry, while simultaneously working with existing data. At the PhD level, this will require an exceptional applicant who can both be in the field and continue to actively analyze and write throughout their program.Paru le: vendredi 08 mai 2015
