Postdoctoral Position: Theoretical Ecology and Synthesis. Application deadline: 3 March, 2017.

We are accepting applications for a postdoctoral research position at the Department of Integrative Biology – University of Guelph, starting as early as summer 2017. Salary is $52,000 per year plus benefits for up to three years. We seek emerging researchers with a strong publication record to work in a highly collaborative group setting. The successful applicant will use their strong mathematical, statistical and computational methods to both develop original theory and synthesize/analyze empirical patterns using relatively large ecological datasets (including time series). The area of research is broadly posed but is focused around understanding the impacts of agriculture and climate change on the structure and function of ecological systems. The PDF will be a part of a new Biodiversity Resilience Network (BiRN) starting at the University of Guelph.   Candidates with a background in mathematics are also encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant will be joining a team of researchers at the University of Guelph, with opportunities for multiple collaborative research papers in addition to their own publications. Candidates should electronically submit a letter of application detailing their research experience, interest in the position, preferred start date, CV with publications, and names with contact details of three referees to: Dr. Kevin McCann, Department of Integrative biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada []. Applications must be received by March 3, 2017.
