*Post-Doctoral Position in Stable Isotope & Seascape Ecology*. The Dauphin
Island Sea Lab is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to work with Dr. Ruth
H. Carmichael for two-years in the area of stable isotope ecology. The
Postdoctoral Investigator will join ongoing research projects that employ
stable isotope and trace element analyses for dietary, condition,
anthropogenic source tracing, and movement/ migration
studies. Specifically, the Postdoctoral Investigator will help lead a newly
funded research study on diet of cetaceans (bottlenose dolphins) before,
during, and following the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and assist with data
analyses and interpretation of existing spatially and temporally explicit
elemental datasets to better understand marine mammal movements and
foraging patterns.

Position responsibilities include interacting with and supervising graduate
and undergraduate students or interns, working closely with
collaborators on ongoing projects, publishing papers from new and existing
datasets, developing new lines of inquiry that build on the core research
studies, and disseminating data through scientific meetings and public

Applicants should have expertise in sample preparation and analysis for
stable isotope ratio determination in a variety of animal tissues, use of
isotope mixing models such as SIAR, and use of statistical analyses and
software programs such as IsoMAP for modeling isoscapes.  Experience with R
statistical methods, student mentoring, and project management preferred.
Familiarity with trace element or fatty acid analyses is beneficial as is
experience with other types of spatial or distribution analyses.

Applicants must hold an earned Ph.D., be fluent in written and spoken
English, and be legally able to work in the USA at the time of
application.  To apply, submit a letter of application and research
interest, CV, 1-2 copies of recently published works, and the names and
contact information for at least three references by email to
GOMRIpostdoc at disl.org. Inquiries may be sent to rcarmichael at disl.org
<hmacintyre at disl.org>.  Review of applications will begin immediately and
continue until the position is filled, with a starting date on or near
01/02/2018.  AA/EEO/M/F/D
