2 POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN INVASIVE SPECIES PHYLOGEOGRAPHY



A have 2 postdoctoral positions available in my lab. Although I am particularly interested in an
individual with skills in phylogeography, I would also consider an individual more broadly
interested in the ecological genetics of invasive species (see
http://www.genetics.uga.edu/mauriciolab/ and http://www.genetics.uga.edu/pire/ for more
details).

I am interested in hiring someone with background in evolutionary or ecological genetics and with
excellent bench skills. The ideal candidate will be organized, pay close attention to detail, and be
able to work both independently and in collaboration with others. In particular, the candidate may
work closely with Dr. Travis Glenn on next-gen approaches. Independent side projects on the part
of the postdoc are encouraged and will be supported intellectually and financially if feasible. A
Ph.D. is required.

There also may be an opportunity for this postdoc to gain independent teaching experience (for
extra pay) by teaching a small, 1-credit, discussion section for our undergraduate evolutionary
biology course each semester.

There is some flexibility in start date, but preference will be given to individuals who can start
immediately. The initial appointment is for one year, with an additional year of funding available
conditional on satisfactory performance.  The annual salary for this position will be commensurate
with experience, and includes benefits. The University of Georgia is an Equal Opportunity Employer
and I encourage applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in the life sciences.

Please send me an e-mail (mauricio@uga.edu) with the following information:  a statement
detailing your interest and qualifications for the position, a proposed start date, a CV, and the
names and contact information for 2 people who could write on your behalf.
