Postdoctoral Positions in Spatial Ecology and/or Conservation Paleontology

The Spatial Ecology & Paleontology Lab at Georgia Tech would like to invite applicants for 1-2 postdoctoral positions beginning Fall 2017. Postdoctoral researchers will work closely with Dr. Jenny McGuire on all aspects of their projects.

One postdoctoral project will use the palynological record to identify landscapes that are resilient to climate change. This applicant will require proficiency in R and in spatial and statistical analyses. Candidates with a background in pollen analysis and/or a desire to interact directly with the conservation community are encouraged to apply. This position will last 2-3 years.

A second position could involve microfaunal analyses of fossil specimens from Natural Trap Cave. However, researchers with a broad interest in integrating a paleontological perspective with spatial ecology and/or conservation biology are welcome to apply. Prior experience in paleontology is not required. This position will last up to 2 years.

Candidates interested in either position may apply by emailing Jenny McGuire (jmcguire@biology.gatech.edu) a CV, contact information for 3 references, and a 1-page statement of your research interests and goals. Please contact the same email address for any additional information.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are filled.
