Fellowships will be two years long, subject to review after the first year, with a starting date beginning June 1 – September 1, 2020. This position is in the Department of Biology (Living Earth Collaborative). This position is for the Danforth Campus.
POSITION SUMMARY: The Living Earth Collaborative, a partnership between Washington University, the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Saint Louis Zoo, was established to advance knowledge and protection of the world’s biodiversity by supporting collaborative research and conservation efforts involving individuals from the three partner and other Saint Louis institutions. See https://livingearthcollaborative.wustl.edu/ for more information on the Collaborative including a list of recently-funded projects. As part of this effort, the Collaborative is pleased to announce the availability of three to five postdoctoral fellowships in the area of biodiversity research and conservation.
LEC Postdoctoral Fellows will be an essential part of the Living Earth Collaborative and are expected to develop an independent research or conservation program that engages with multiple members of the Living Earth Collaborative Community—projects that involve LEC Biodiversity Fellows (https://livingearthcollaborative.wustl.edu/about-us/researchers/) from at least two of the partner institutions, one partner institution and Saint Louis University, or two departments at Washington University are particularly encouraged. In addition, fellows are expected to be an integral part of the Living Earth Collaborative by participating in and organizing events and interacting with the diverse LEC community. Applicants are encouraged to contact prospective mentors prior to application.
Candidates are expected to have obtained a PhD degree in a relevant field by the anticipated starting date.
