Postdoctoral positions

Postdoc in ecosystem forecasting and management at UC Santa Cruz
Dr. Stephan Munch is looking for postdoctoral fellow to participate in research on ecosystem forecasting and multi-objective management.
Current research involves ecosystem forecasting using Gaussian process machine learning and delay-embedding. The results are
combined with approximate dynamic programming algorithms in order to produce management advice. Future research avenues include partially-specified dynamical models, early warning signals, predicting extreme events, and multi-objective control. Within this umbrella, specific research projects are flexible and will be tailored around individual interests. Postdoc support is currently available for 1.5 years, with the possibility of extension. Candidates interested in more details should contact Dr. Munch directly: ude.cscu|hcnums#ude.cscu|hcnums.

Postdoc in Bayesian models for movement ecology at Univ. Florida

Dr. Denis Valle (School of Forest Resources and Conservation) and Dr. Robert Fletcher (Wildlife Ecology and Conservation) are now accepting applications for a postdoctoral position at the University of Florida (UF). This postdoctoral position will focus on the development and application of novel Bayesian methods for wildlife GPS tracking data. Additional details can be found [].

Postdoc in Spruce budworm phenology modelling at University of Ottawa

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in modelling various aspects of the spruce budworm system in Atlantic Canada and potential early intervention strategies. In particular, the goal is to consider the effects of phenology mismatch between budworm and its host. How will such a mismatch develop as a result of global change and geographic location, and what are its implication for the timing and effectiveness of early intervention strategies?

The research will use mathematical models, numerical simulation, data fitting and scenario testing. The position is based at the University of Ottawa, but the research will be carried out in close collaboration with researchers from Natural Resources Canada in Ontario and elsewhere. Applicants should have a PhD in quantitative/theoretical ecology, mathematical biology, or a related field with strong expertise in modelling, data integration and simulation.

The salary will be commensurate with the experience of the candidate in the range of $39.000 - $45.000 CDN (including benefits). Some funding for travel to collaborators and/or workshops and conferences will be available in addition. The position is available immediately. The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility to extend until March 2022, based on performance.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a cover letter, their CV, and at least two names of potential referees. The cover letter should explain the applicant's experience related to the project. Applications should be sent to Frithjof Lutscher (ac.awattou|ehcstulf#ac.awattou|ehcstulf). Only complete applications will be considered.
