Research Fellow I

Job description

The department of Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology seeks a Post Doctoral Research Fellow for one year. This position performs research in a laboratory that supports and furthers the research agenda of the lab. Works independently in planning and conducting experiments that examines functional morphology of swimming in fishes. Knowledge of physiological basis of swimming and willingness to incorporate hydrodynamics of propulsion. Additional roles include manuscript and grant development, advance level administrative tasks in the laboratory, supervision and training of undergraduates and / or graduates working in the lab, and providing technical support to graduate students on instrumentation.

  • Teaches 6 contact hours (equivalent to the lecture and laboratory component of a single course) during the academic year such as comparative vertebrate anatomy.
  • Performs complex data collection, reduction, and laboratory techniques requiring the use of independent judgement
  • Performs tests and analyses to determine procedures to be used and interprets results
  • Perform advanced to senior level administrative tasks

Funding for this position is based on specialty funds and therefore continued employment beyond the first year will be based on the availability of funds.

  • Advanced functional morphology techniques, including video analysis, physiology, techniques and instrumentation related to swimming in fishes
  • Willingness to learn modern techniques in hydrodynamics and computer analysis relating to hydrodynamics, computer modeling, 3D printing and simulations
  • Knowledge of comparative vertebrate anatomy required, particularly lower vertebrate anatomy (i.e. fishes).

  • Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology or similar discipline preferred
  • One year of post- doctoral research is preferred
  • Experience teaching at the college level is preferred.
