Postdoctoral Research Associate - Levine Research Group
The Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) (http://web.princeton.edu/sites/PEI/ ) invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate and/or more senior research position with Jonathan Levine's research group to study (1) the dynamics of populations, communities, or ecosystems, with implications for terrestrial carbon storage, or (2) the management of land for the dual and potentially competing goals of biodiversity conservation and natural climate solutions. Within either theme, the research questions and approaches are flexible and will be determined by the successful candidate. She/he will work with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers affiliated with PEI's Carbon Mitigation Initiative and will start in late 2020 / early 2021. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. degree in ecology or related field. Appointments are for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second year based upon satisfactory performance. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Applicants must apply online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/16721 and submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interest, and names and contact information for three references. Prospective postdoctoral researchers from groups underrepresented in ecology are particularly encouraged to apply. More information about Jonathan's research group can be found on the research group website: https://levine.princeton.edu Application review will begin August 10, 2020.
