I am seeking a postdoctoral scientist to examine plant community dynamics in 
ecosystems. The project uses ecological simulation models (water balance and 
plant models) to characterize sagebrush plant community responses to altered 
disturbance regimes and climate conditions across the range of sagebrush in 
North America. This position will be a part of collaborative research involving 
University, the USGS Southwest Biological Science Center (Flagstaff, AZ) and 
University of Basel (Basel, Switzerland). The successful candidate will work in 
Lauenroth’s lab at Yale University. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in 
biology, ecology, 
ecosystem ecology, soil science, hydrology, or a closely related field, as well 
as a strong 
work ethic, demonstrated quantitative capabilities, a record of publication and 
and a proven ability to work independently. A strong quantitative and 
background, interest in and/or experience with ecological simulation models, 
familiarity with R, are essential.

To apply send a a cover letter describing your interest in this position, a 
description of 
your experience with R, and a CV with names and addresses of 3 references to 
william.lauenr...@yale.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately, and 
will remain open until filled. Questions about this opportunity may be directed 
to William 
Lauenroth (william.lauenr...@yale.edu).
