Postdoctoral position is available for Fall 2018 in wildlife population genomics, conservation genetics, and disease ecology at the University of Wyoming (UW) in Laramie. The position is primarily lab-based within the Ernest Wildlife Genomics and Disease Ecology Laboratory in the Department of Veterinary Sciences and affiliated programs. Research will use genomic and other genetic tools to study wildlife populations in the Rocky Mountain West and/or California, and with intersections in population health and disease ecology.

The Ernest Wildlife Genomics and Disease Ecology Laboratory is a dynamic and highly collaborative lab at UW.  We work with other academic institutions, as well as state, federal, and non-governmental agencies. There are many opportunities to work with recognized leaders who apply excellence in science toward wildlife conservation and management. Quality mentorship of trainees of all educational levels is a priority for the laboratory. University of Wyoming hosts excellent wildlife and ecology science and a collegial academic atmosphere. Laramie is a wonderful college town of ~ 30,000 and offers easy access to the Rocky Mountains and outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, climbing, birding, and fishing & hunting.

Looking for candidate to start August 2018 or as soon as possible after that.
