Position Details Position Information Employee Type Faculty Title Postdoctoral Research Associate Working Title Postdoctoral Research Associate Position Number 052067 College/Area College of Arts and Sciences Hiring Unit Department Link School of Biological Sciences Dowd Lab Work Location Pullman Zip Code 99164 Summary of Duties The Dowd Laboratory in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University (WSU) seeks a postdoctoral fellow to preferentially begin work by January 2019 (earlier start dates could be possible). The postdoc will participate in a set of NSF-funded studies designed to examine the consequences of realistically covarying environmental parameters (salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and pH) and unpredictable extreme events for several ecophysiological performance metrics of tidepool copepods. There will also be opportunities to develop related, independent research projects, for example on how underlying biochemical processes are influenced by these patterns of variation. Parallel studies on intertidal mussels are ongoing in the lab. The position will be based at the WSU campus in Pullman, WA. The postdoc will conduct some fieldwork but will focus on extensive laboratory rearing studies with copepod lines, co-supervise undergraduate students, work alongside one or more graduate students, analyze data and prepare manuscripts, present results at professional conferences, and interact with our collaborator Dr. Mark Denny of Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University (HMS). Applicants should have a genuine interest in participating in a program that closely integrates laboratory and field research, teaching, and student mentoring. Work will be conducted both in the laboratory and in the rocky intertidal zone at HMS and other field sites. Additional Information More information about our work can be found at labs.wsu.edu/dowd . The School of Biological Sciences has a strong research presence in organismal biology, evolution, and ecology research ( sbs.wsu.edu ); there are many opportunities for interaction and collaboration. The surrounding area offers a variety of outdoor activities, and Spokane is roughly 1.5 hours to the north. Support (salary WSU benefits) is available for up to 2 years, renewable on an annual basis assuming satisfactory performance. Anticipated Start Date 01/01/2019 Tenure Track No Full-Time/Part-Time Full Time Appointment Status Temporary Position Term in Months 12 Monthly Salary Commensurate with qualifications and experience Required Qualifications Required education/experience: Ph.D. in Biology, Physiology, Biochemistry or other field relevant to organismal biology Preferred Qualifications Creative, strongly self-motivated candidates with experience in organismal physiology, high-throughput phenotyping, and/or ecomechanics as they relate to environmental stress will be given preference. Prior experience with constructing, programming, and/or maintaining environmental control systems (e.g., using Arduino or similar microcontrollers) or complex aquarium systems would be particularly valuable. Strong quantitative skills (e.g., analysis of multivariate data using packages such as R or Matlab) as well as prior experience combining mechanistic laboratory and field studies will be viewed favorably.
