POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in Pollination and Biodiversity, Simon Fraser University

With Elizabeth Elle and Leithen M’Gonigle, Dept. of Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to collaborate with us on analyzing existing (and possibly new) data on plant-pollinator interactions in both natural landscapes and agroecosystems. There is substantial freedom for motivated individuals to design the direction of the work, depending on skills and interests.

Individuals with experience researching pollination and/or with strong skills in some combination of modeling, spatial analysis, and/or interaction network analysis, are encouraged to apply. Taxonomic knowledge of both pollinators and plants is a plus. The successful applicant will primarily collaborate on analysis and publication using existing datasets, but collection of new data (especially to fill gaps) is possible. The position is expected to be available for two years.

Simon Fraser University is in the Greater Vancouver region of British Columbia. The Department of Biological Sciences has research strength in ecology and evolution to provide an intellectual home for the successful candidate (http://www.biology.sfu.ca/)

To apply, please send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by email to Elizabeth Elle [elizabeth_elle@sfu.ca] and Leithen M’Gonigle [lmgonigl@sfu.ca]. Review of applications will begin in August and continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Start date is anticipated to be ~ January 2019. Salary and benefits will be competitive with NSERC postdoctoral fellowships.
