We are looking for a postdoctoral scholar to join us at the University of Washington School of Marine and Environmental Affairs.

This position is funded to work on a new grant from the Office of Naval Research as part of the Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) awards. The project, entitled “MMARINeDNA: Marine Mammal Remote detection via INnovative environmental DNA sampling,” aims to understand the transport, persistence, and distribution of environmental DNA (eDNA) in marine environments from marine mammal targets.

The postdoctoral fellow in this position will develop and analyze eDNA data, developing a statistical model to describe the fate and transport of marine mammal eDNA as a part of the larger MMARINeDNA project. The position will entail planning and conducting short field-sampling campaigns, as well as processing quantitative PCR and other eDNA data, but the main focus will be statistical modeling of those resulting data over space and time.

The term is one year, renewable subject to performance and available funding; the larger MMARINeDNA project is funded for a five-year period.
