Postdoctoral Position in Animal Behavior and Demography

Arizona State University

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in behavioral
ecology and population biology/demography.  The position is available
from October 1, 2007, for a period of up to 2 years.  Postdoc will work
with PI and graduate students on an NSF-funded project to 1) integrate
theories from behavioral ecology with quantitative techniques in
demography and 2) contribute to an empirical research program on
California sea lions in the Gulf of California, Mexico to test
hypotheses regarding the degree to which the demography of sea lions
depends on reproductive behavior.  More detail on the project can be
found at http://www.public.asu.edu/~lrgerbe/.

We are seeking an individual who is comfortable with large datasets and
programming scripts for non-standard statistical tools in R or SAS to
handle nesting, temporal autocorrelation and other statistical
dependencies that plague large behavioral datasets.  One of the central
goals is to advance new statistical approaches to behavioral studies. 

Analyses of the data will be based on questions of interests to both the
PI and the postdoc.  The main criteria are: a knowledge of standard
statistics for ecology, familiarity with elementary programming and
modelling, research experience in some type of ecological field work,
and imagination, curiosity, and a knack for working independently. In
addition, knowledge of demographic modeling approaches are desirable.  A
PhD in some aspect of ecology is required.  The person will be based at
Arizona State University in Tempe with potential for field work in the
Gulf of California Mexico.  Send CV, statement of research interests,
and contact information for 3 references to leah.gerber at asu.edu. Closing
date: 10/1/2007, or until a successful candidate is identified. Arizona
State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer
