Paid positions:

At this time we are especially looking for a
postdoctoral avian molecular ecologist.

This position entails:

  • Spearheading an unbelievable new research project (I'm talking almost as good as discovering a time machine) on evolution in an introduced species, that can be completed during the postdoctoral tenure

  • Teaching the laboratory section of an undergraduate biology course

  • Managing a brand new molecular lab, including having as many undergraduate and graduate students as you want, to work on whatever you want

Please email me if you are interested.
