Postdoctoral Research Associate position available.
I am searching for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join me at West Virginia University for 18 months with a preferred start time of January 2019.
The Department of Geology and Geography at West Virginia University is seeking a full time Postdoctoral Research Associate. The position will be based in the Paleobiology research lab. The incumbent will develop new research projects focusing on macroevolution and/or macroecology using the fossil record in concert with the Principal Investigator; present the results of research findings at scientific conferences and in internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journals; and provide support to students in the lab and collaborate with them when appropriate. This position is funded for 18 months, with possibility for extension contingent upon securing further funding.
I am interested in speaking to applicants who wish to develop new projects focusing on macroevolution and macroecology in any taxonomic groups or time period. This is a rather broadly defined topic, and I am interested in speaking with applicants who have expertise in a diversity of taxa and methods. Contact me if you are interested in applying.
