A postdoctoral position is available in the Blum Lab 
(www.tulane.edu/~mjblum, http://eeb.bio.utk.edu/people/michael-j-blum/) to 
support DoD-funded collaborative research on the control of aquatic 
invasive species (AIS) in Hawaiian Island streams (https://www.serdp-
Resources/Pacific-Island-Ecology-and-Management/RC-2447). The incumbent 
will be expected to contribute to studies of aquatic community responses to 
AIS control under varying surface flow regimes that fall within a broader 
portfolio of work on genomic, life history, population, and ecosystem 
conditions. The incumbent will be expected to assist with the analysis of 
data from long-term, field-based studies as well as the preparation of 
reports, articles, and associated project deliverables. In addition to 
contributing to the project described above, the incumbent will be 
encouraged to pursue other, complementary research. The incumbent will be 
mentored by the project PI, Dr. Michael Blum, and both project Co-PIs, Dr. 
J. Derek Hogan (Texas A&M – Corpus Christi), and Dr. Peter McIntyre 
(University of Wisconsin – Madison, Cornell University). Candidates are 
being sought with: (1) strong statistical and programming skills, 
preferably with experience in R; (2) demonstrated research excellence; and 
(3) strong oral and written communication skills. Preference will be given 
to applicants whose research interests and expertise complement the 
research project but outstanding applicants looking to broaden their field 
of interest will also be seriously considered. A PhD in Ecology, 
Conservation Biology, or a related field is required. An initial 
appointment will be for one year, with continuation for at least one 
additional year dependent upon performance. The position is available 
immediately, with a preferred start date of late spring or early summer 
2018. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Send 
via email attachment a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement 
of research interests, and names and addresses of three references to Dr. 
Michael Blum at mjb...@tulane.edu. For earliest consideration, apply by 15 
March 2018. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. 
Tulane University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity/ADA 
Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
