POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW IN POPULATION BIOLOGY -- The Center for Population Biology at UC Davis invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Population Biology, broadly defined to include ecology, phylogenetics, comparative biology, population genetics, and evolution. We particularly encourage applications from candidates that have recently completed, or will soon complete, their Ph.D.
The position is for TWO YEARS, subject to review after one year, and can begin as early as July 1, 2024. This position is covered by a collective bargaining unit. The posted UC salary scales set the minimum pay determined by rank and/or step at appointment. See Table 23: Postdoctoral Scholar-Employee, Postdoctoral Scholar-Fellow, Postdoctoral Scholar-Paid Direct, Fiscal Year. The salary range for this position is $64,480-$64,480. 'Off-scale salaries', i.e., a salary that is higher than the published system-wide salary at the designated rank and step, are offered when necessary to meet competitive conditions, qualifications, and experience. The Fellow will be a fully participating member in the Center for Population Biology and will be expected to have an independent research program that bridges the interests of two or more CPB faculty research groups. The postdoctoral fellow plays a leadership role in our community with past fellows acting as important mentors, collaborators, and role models to our graduate students. We strongly encourage candidates to contact appropriate faculty sponsors before applying. We also ask that each Fellow propose a workshop, discussion or lecture series that they could offer to the community of population biologists at UC Davis; faculty sponsors or the Director of CPB, Graham Coop, can provide additional input on this aspect of the fellowship. For samples of past workshop abstracts and more information about UC Davis programs in population biology, see https://cpb.ucdavis.edu/cpb-postdoc-fellowship. Workshop proposals can focus on broad research techniques or topics, career development, or diversity equity and inclusion activities.
ONLINE APPLICATION: Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, a CV, a short description of research accomplishments (1-2 pages), a short description of proposed research including potential faculty mentors (1-2 pages; references may be in addition to the page limit), a brief description of their proposed workshop (1 page or less), copies of two manuscripts (published, preprints, or drafts), and a statement of contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. All documents should be submitted in PDF format at: https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF06045. (This job number and application link will be open and available for application input on or around September 26, 2023).
Applicants should also provide the information requested for three referees. Once entered, applicants will electronically request letters from referees who will then be prompted by email with upload instructions. The postdoctoral fellow plays a leadership role in our community with past fellows acting as important mentors, collaborators, and role models to our graduate students. Therefore, we ask the applicant to please advise the reference writers to comment on the candidate's past roles as a mentor and/or a community member. Refer to the on-line instructions for further information.
For full consideration, applications (including letters of reference) must be received by November 1, 2023. E-mail questions to email@example.com.
