A position is available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the lab of Maria Servedio at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to work on an NSF funded collaboration between Maria Servedio and Reinhard Bürger (University of Vienna) on theoretical models of speciation. Prior experience with theoretical modeling techniques (especially population genetic modeling) and a strong mathematical background is preferred. A Ph.D., programming experience and a strong background in evolution is required.
Research in the Servedio lab (https://sites.google.com/view/servedio-lab/home) concentrates on developing mathematical models of speciation and mate choice. Please contact Maria Servedio (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on the project involved in this position and other projects ongoing in the lab.
The appointment is for 1-2 years with a flexible start date. Submit applications including a cover letter, a CV, a description of research experience and interests and brief description of background in theory and related skills, and names and email addresses of two references to http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/175126, and please also send a copy of the cover letter and CV directly to Maria Servedio at email@example.com The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hosts an active group in speciation, and more generally in Evolution and Ecology (see bio.unc.edu). UNC is part of North Carolina’s Research Triangle, home also to Duke University, and North Carolina State University. Chapel Hill has reasonable living expenses, many outdoor activities, and a warm climate.
Informal inquiries are welcome. Review of applications will begin on January 15 and continue until the position is filled.
