Post Doc in Floral Evolutionary Ecology

University of New Brunswick - Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

Position Title: Post Doc in Floral Evolutionary Ecology
Position Type: Post-Doctoral Position
Application Review Begins: Monday, March 11, 2019
Application Deadline: Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Institution: University of New Brunswick
Department/Division: Biology
Field (e.g., systematics): Evolutionary Ecology
City: Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada
General Information: A postdoctoral position studying the evolutionary ecology of floral scent in the Penstemons is available in the Parachnowitsch lab in the Biology Department at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada.

This position is part of a larger project understanding the macro and micro-evolution of floral scent. The post doc can choose to focus on evolution of scent across the genus, geographic variation and its causes in P. digitalis or a QTL study on scent. I also encourage independent research questions.
Qualifications/Requirements: The ideal candidate will have a strong background in evolutionary ecology and experience analysing data. Previous experience with studying floral traits, scent analysis and/or pollination is an asset but not required if the candidate is willing to learn and has strong research skills.
Responsibilities: The post doc will be responsible for organising and running field or greenhouse experiments. Data analysis and manuscript writing will be an important aspect of the position. Opportunities for supervising students are also possible.
Application Instructions (submission methods, etc.): Position is available immediately (flexible start but earlier preferred).

To apply, please send your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and contact information for three references via e-mail to: aparachn@unb.ca — informal inquiries encouraged.

I will review applications on an ongoing basis until the position is filled.
