Physiology & fitness consequences of insect life history phenotypes

Post-doctoral Fellowship

We seek one post-doctoral researcher, beginning May 2005, for an NSF- funded cross disciplinary research project involving four principal
David W. Borst - Endocrinology, Physiology, Development
Steven A. Juliano - Ecology, Evolutionary Biology
Douglas W. Whitman - Behavior, Ecology
Olcay Akman - Statistical Modeling
The research focuses on developmental and physiological mechanisms producing interpopulation variation in adult body size and the fitness consequences of that body size variation in the field. The research uses a grasshopper as a model system. We seek a motivated post-doctoral researcher who will participate in ongoing experiments and also expand the scope of this project by posing new questions. The post doctoral researcher will work closely with all four investigators and with undergraduate research students. Funding is available for up to 4 years. Starting salary $28,000 plus health insurance and retirement.
ľ Ph.D. in ecology, entomology, physiology, evolutionary biology,
life-history modeling, or related disciplines;
ľ interest or experience in work with insects; availability for
field work in the Florida Everglades
ľ willingness to work closely with undergraduate research students; ľ interest in cross-disciplinary research including some combination
of ecology, endocrinology, evolution, physiology, cell &
molecular biology, or mathematical modeling.
