Postdoctoral Fellow position available in invasion ecology with Drs. Hugh MacIsaac and Sarah Bailey. We seek candidates for a position to address risk assessment associated with colonization pressure in aquatic invasion ecology. The successful applicant will review pertinent literature, assess risk associated with mock zooplankton communities in experimental mesocosms, and model relative risk associated with colonization pressure and propagule pressure in ballast water communities. Appointment is initially available for one year, with renewal contingent on funding.
Applicants must possess a PhD in plankton ecology and/or invasion ecology, a strong publication record, and strong quantitative and verbal skills. Experience working with large data sets, and on collaborative projects with multiple stakeholders is beneficial.
The position is based primarily at GLIER with Hugh MacIsaac, though some work and analyses will occur with Sarah Bailey at Fisheries and Oceans Canada in Burlington, Ontario.
Applications should include a cover letter, c.v., statement of research interests, and the names of two references. Application materials should be directed to Dr. Hugh MacIsaac at firstname.lastname@example.org.
