Publié le par Doctorants CEBC CNRS

 

We are seeking applications for a post-doctoral associate in ecology as

part of the Cedar Creek LTER program at the University of Minnesota. The

appointment is for one year with potential for renewal, to begin as soon as

possible. The specific research project to be conducted will depend on the

interests of the successful applicant, and we are particularly interested in

someone who will test hypotheses by integrating across several of the

research foci of the Cedar Creek LTER (e.g., community dynamics,

biogeochemistry, ecophysiology, trophic dynamics). The successful applicant

is expected to work as part of any one of a number of new and ongoing

long-term experiments, utilize existing long-term datasets, and/or conduct

cross-site syntheses. Available experiments include manipulations of fire

frequency, nutrients inputs, CO2, temperature, biodiversity, and herbivore

densities. In addition, the Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve contains a

variety of ecosystem types (prairie, old-fields, oak savanna, oak forest,

pine forest, wetland, agricultural fields) appropriate for comparative

studies.

 

Visit http://cedarcreek.umn.edu/ for more information about the site and

ongoing research projects. Questions should be addressed to Drs. Sarah

Hobbie, shobbie@umn.edu or David Tilman, tilman@umn.edu, Department of

Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior.

 

To apply, send a statement of research interests, CV, and three letters of

recommendation to Belinda Befort, befort@umn.edu, with the subject line:

Cedar Creek Post-Doc Search. Review of applications will begin April 25,

2010, and continue until the position is filled.
