Hello all,

I am recruiting a postdoc in the general field of plant community ecology.

This position is for a three-year, full time postdoctoral researcher
interested in theoretical plant community ecology.  This position is based
at The University of Queensland in Brisbane Australia and the successful
candidate will work closely with Prof Margaret Mayfield (primary supervisor)
and the members of Prof. Mayfield’s research group (see

This is an open position and is not associated with a specific research
project and thus the successful candidate will have extensive freedom in
deciding what topics/projects they would like to work on.  We are
particularly interested in ecologists with strong quantitative skills who
are interested in empirical tests of ecological theory though the position
is open to applicants with a wide range of backgrounds and is not restricted
to applicants with a background in plants or field work in any particular
system. Some field experience is desirable but not essential. Candidates
will be considered from broad backgrounds, including candidates who have
purely theoretical interests/experience to those who focus on field or
lab-based experiments, asking theoretical to applied questions.  Primarily,
Dr. Mayfield is looking for a postdoc who is interested in the same research
topics currently being explored in the Mayfield research group. For
candidates interested in field-based projects, there is an expectation that
field projects would utilise Prof. Mayfield’s established field sites in
winter annual wildflower communities of SW Western Australia. (Job number
501889 on the University of Queensland job site).
