UPDATE: This position has been filled
Here’s the ad that was posted to ecolog and evoldir: A postdoctoral position focusing on the evolutionary ecology and/or community ecology of host-parasite interactions is available in the laboratory of Meghan Duffy at the University of Michigan. The successful candidate for this position will be expected to carry out independent research relating to the ongoing research in the Duffy Lab. Some major themes include the evolution of hosts and parasites, eco-evolutionary dynamics in host-parasite systems, and the evolutionary and community ecology of multihost-multiparasite interactions. There will also be the potential to develop additional projects building on the strengths, interests, and expertise of the successful candidate. Research will involve using Daphnia and their microparasites as a model system, and will involve a combination of field work and lab experiments. Experience in disease ecology, community ecology, and/or evolutionary ecology is expected. Experience working with Daphnia would be beneficial, but is not required. More information on the Duffy Lab can be found at: https://duffylab.wordpress.com/ More information on the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan can be found at: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/eeb/ The start date for this position is flexible, but preference will be given to applicants who can start by mid-summer 2015. Funding is available for at least two years, but is contingent on satisfactory progress in year one.
