Postdoctoral scientist (Florida International University, North Miami, FL) - Marine community ecology/behavioral ecology

Associate Professor Mike Heithaus seeks a postdoctoral scientist in the area of marine behavioral or community ecology at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus. There is considerable freedom in the research program and the successful candidate will be expected to develop independent research projects and collaborate on writing grant proposals.  Potential areas of research include (but are not limited to) factors influencing habitat use and movement patterns of large marine vertebrates, the role of non-consumptive effects and trait-mediated indirect interactions in marine communities,  the importance of state-dependent decisions in community dynamics, and the ecological role of predators. The successful candidate can work at long-term field sites in the Florida Coastal Everglades or Shark Bay, Western Australia, conduct laboratory or theoretical investigations, or at their own or new field sites.  This is a research position, but opportunities to gain undergraduate teaching experience are available if desired.

For more information or to apply contact Mike Heithaus (heithaus at fiu.edu<mailto:heithaus at fiu.edu>).  To apply, send a letter, CV, statement of research interest, and contact details for three references willing to write letters.

Requirements: PhD in related field. Candidates with strong theoretical, mathematical, computational, and/or statistical skills are especially encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: Open until filled. Start date is open - the sooner the better.  Review of applications will begin August 24th.
