The Richards-Zawacki lab at Tulane University is seeking a Postdoctoral
Research Associate to participate in an NSF funded project investigating the
evolutionary ecology of Panamanian poison frogs. The successful applicant
will collaborate on projects to investigate the roles of natural and sexual
selection in driving diversification among poison frog populations in
Panama. Potential projects could include (1) studies of mating
behavior/sexual selection and/or natural selection on aposematic signal
variants, (2) studies of the genetic/genomic architecture of variation in
aposematic signals and their reception, or (3) studies of the impact of
habitat quality on visual/chemical signals.
The successful applicant will have (1) a Ph.D. in evolution, molecular
biology, ecology or related field, (2) the ability to organize and lead
field studies in Panama and/or molecular studies in New Orleans, (3) strong
writing skills, and (4) the ability to work independently. Candidates with
experience working with genomic/transcriptomic data and a working knowledge
