Postdoctoral researcher position available in population/community ecology

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.Posted: Tuesday 26 May 2015

Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology

Université du Québec à Rimouski
I am looking for a Ph.D. student to start in September 2015. Possible projects include: 1) Evolutionary consequences of transitions to obligate asexuality 2) Phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation (temperature, UV, salinity) in subarctic Daphnia, 3) Effects of mutation accumulations on mitochondrial phenotype. The model used is the water flea, Daphnia pulex given its wide distribution, sensitivity to environmental stressors, and to the fact that it has a full genome sequence and an important genomics community. Different approaches include field work in subarctic Quebec, experimental work,molecular and genomic techniques. Ideal start date September 2015 Admissibility conditions: M.Sc. or equivalent Skills: - Good knowledge of ecological genetics and evolutionary biology - Interest for molecular techniques and bioinformatics - Scientific writing If interested, send a presentation letter describing your interests and motivation, a cv, and a transcript along with the names and contacts of two potential referees to : France_dufresne@uqar.ca http://www.uqar.ca/specialistes/equipe/dufresne-france/Posted: Monday 06 July 2015

Ecology and Sociobiology of a Wolf-Ungulate Predator-Prey Game

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.Posted: Friday 08 May 2015
