We have an open position for a postdoctoral researcher to join the lab!
The topic is conservation biogeography–how do we protect different pools of biodiversity at local and global scales? The postdoc will have an opportunity to craft and direct the project. We are seeking someone with a quantitative background that has either developed or extensively used ecological models applied to many species. Experience with conservation prioritization is a plus. We also seek someone with demonstrated skills in effective organization and communication.
Applicants should submit a cover letter including their research interests, a CV, and the names and contact details of two references to Laura Pollock (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line “Biogeography post-doc applicant”.
Review of applicants will begin immediately and remain open until filled. The project will begin remotely, but the candidate will be expected to move to Montréal when feasible. The salary will be $42,000 per year plus benefits. The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable for a second year.
We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and Permanent Residents of Canada will be given priority. We particularly encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
