Seeking Post-doc in Evolutionary Ecology

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Evolutionary Ecology

Sebastian Schreiber and Casey terHorst are looking for qualified candidates for a two-year post-doctoral position, shared between our labs.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in ecology, evolution, or mathematical biology, with relevant experience in community ecology or evolutionary ecology. Successful candidates will be able to work independently conducting experiments in both lab and field settings. Experience with model selection techniques or mathematical modeling would be very helpful, but are not required.

The goal of the project is to examine the effects of trait evolution within species on the stability of multispecies communities. The post-doc will conduct laboratory microcosm experiments with protists and bacteria to test the predictions of mathematical models. The post-doc will also be encouraged to play a role in developing models that incorporate both ecological and evolutionary dynamics.

Lab work will primarily be based at California State University, Northridge (in Los Angeles), but the post-doc will also spend a significant amount of time interacting with the Center for Population Biology at UC Davis.  Interested candidates should a one page statement of research interests, a CV, and names and contact information of three potential references, as a single pdf file via email to The ideal start date is August 2014, but is flexible. Initial review of applications will begin on April 30. Minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.  Salary will be based on relevant experience.
