The Illinois Natural History Survey is seeking applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate. The position is full-time and will be funded for two years. Full details are available here.
Applications should include a two year research plan (maximum 3 single spaced pages, not including references) for research at the Illinois Natural History Survey. Preference will be given to applicants who develop a strong research plan that merits additional and continued external funding. Applicants must have an earned Ph.D. by the start date (negotiable but expected before 31 December 2013) and have graduated within the last five years.
Applicants must contact a host research sponsor (listed here) at the Illinois Natural History Survey in advance of the application. Identification of a willing host research sponsor along with a letter of support from the sponsor must accompany the application. A full curriculum vitae must also be included and applicants should arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent in addition to the sponsor letter. Applications should be submitted by 15 March 2013 to receive full consideration.
Candidates interested in working in my lab should contact me directly by e-mail or telephone to discuss possible projects. I will consider supporting applicants with interests in insect systematics and paleontology (with emphasis on Orthoptera and related groups preferred).
