The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the NSF-EPSCoR GEM3 program (www.idahogem3.org/) aimed at understanding how genetic diversity and phenotypic plasticity affect species responses to environmental change, focusing on two taxa: redband trout and sagebrush. These taxa are integral to ecosystems in the American West and central to land-use management decisions that drive the regional economy. The selected candidate will build quantitative genetics models of the genetic and plastic basis of phenotypic traits in these taxa and their role in adaptive capacity and population responses to changing environmental conditions.
Education: Ph.D. by the time of appointment in biological sciences, mathematical biology, or a related discipline;
Experience with population genetics or quantitative genetics demonstrated by publications in the field.
Ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team;
Evidence of strong written and oral communication skills;
Experience with mathematical modeling and computer programing is desirable.
