We are seeking a highly motivated Post-doctoral Research Associate to complete analyses of data collected on Golden-winged Warbler breeding grounds habitat use, demographics, and response to management. We have collected 3 years of data from seven study sites across the breeding range of the species using standardized protocols. We are now in a position to analyze and synthesize these data, write publications, make presentations on the results, and incorporate these findings into the development of regional and habitat-specific management prescriptions for development of a conservation strategy for this species.
The position runs from 1 Sep 2010 through 31 Aug 2011. There may be opportunity for extension of the project based on future funding opportunities. The position will pay $42,500 in salary plus benefits.
Qualifications include experience working with bird monitoring data, habitat evaluation at multiple spatial scales, demographic analyses in Program MARK, excellent writing skills with documented publication record, leadership skills, and ability to work well with other agencies and professionals.
Ph.D. degree in wildlife science, conservation biology, ecology or related field required. Successful applicants will also have a strong academic record (GPA >3.5, GRE >1200 verbal + quantitative minimums).
Deadline for applications is 25 Jun 2010.
To apply, send by email: letter of interest, CV, GRE scores, transcripts, and names and contact information for 3 references to DR.
