Post-Doctoral Position in Paleobiology (Florida Museum of Natural History):
The Invertebrate Paleontology Division at the Florida Museum of Natural History (University of Florida) invites applications for 1 or more postdoctoral positions in paleobiology. We are seeking motivated candidates, preferably with experience in quantitative paleoecology and stratigraphic paleobiology. The successful candidates will be part of two NSF-funded projects focused on marine invertebrate paleobiology. The projects will involve close collaboration with partners at University of Bologna and Dr. Tyler at Miami University of Ohio.
Candidates should submit a letter of application, a CV including a list of publications, and addresses of at least two referees to Carrie Tyler (tylercl at MiamiOH.edu). E-mail applications are preferred. For further information please contact Tyler, or see full job posting sent out via the PaleoNet Listserver. Review of applications will begin right away and will continue until the position is filled.
