Postdoctoral Scholar Ecology, Evolutionary Biology Integrative Biology
The Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applications for a Postdoctoral scholar in the Boots Lab, in the area of disease ecology and evolution.
The postdoc will be part of an EEID funded project examining how Individual heterogeneities and the heterogeneity in transmission due to population structure interact with heterogeneities that arise from specificity between host and parasites genotypes. The key intellectual challenges of the proposal are to (1) develop theory to predict how these heterogeneities interact to determine long-term outcomes and transient evolutionary behavior, (2) test these predictions in a tractable laboratory model system and (3) develop models to predict the impact of heterogeneities to the evolution of agricultural systems. The postdoc will be leading the empirical component of the project, but there will be opportunities to work with theoreticians and to develop modeling skills.
Responsibilities include experimental design, establishment of microcosms, assays, statistical analyses, and preparation of manuscripts for publication. The researcher will work with the PI to lead a team undergraduate researchers to maintain long term microcosms and develop independent projects. There also exists ample opportunity and encouragement to design and implement additional projects of mutual interest.
This position provides full benefits.
