A postdoctoral research position in conservation biology is available to develop and test trait-based models of species invasiveness, forecast potential range changes under climate change, and to combine these approaches with data on global transportation networks to forecast future invasions. These research opportunities exist on multiple externally funded projects as well as within the Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative (http://environmentalchange.nd.edu/).
Applicant screening is rolling, but with a desired start in spring 2012.
Salary and benefits will be competitive. Applicants should email (in one pdf document) a letter describing prior research experience and current interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to Dr. David Lodge (firstname.lastname@example.org), with a cc to Joanna McNulty (McNulty.email@example.com).
