Postdoctoral Scholar in aquatic plant weed control and restoration at UC Davis

The Gornish lab at the University of Arizona and the Grosholz lab at the University of California, Davis, seek a postdoctoral scholar to manage a weed control and restoration project fully funded by the California Delta Conservancy and the California Department of Water Resources, entitled ‘Investigations of restoration techniques that limit invasion of tidal wetlands.’

The project goal is to investigate revegetation techniques using native plants that deter colonization of invasive species in tidal wetland restoration sites to create a baseline of empirical knowledge of these techniques that can be employed in restoration project plans within the Bay Delta, CA. The postdoc will be responsible for: securing, deploying and maintaining experimental treatments, collecting and analyzing data from the study, taking the lead on manuscript preparation, and presenting results at relevant local and regional meetings. We seek an individual with a PhD in ecology, invasion biology, aquatic management, restoration ecology, or related field. We expect candidates to have experience managing projects in aquatic systems, collecting plant data, and analyzing data. Women and members of underrepresented groups in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply.

The postdoc will be situated in an office on the UC Davis campus. Preference will be given to candidates that can start date on or close to July 1 2017. The position is available for up to three years, with an initial appointment for one year and subsequent years based on satisfactory progress and mutual consent.  Salary and benefits will be commensurate with experience. To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, and the names of three references to Elise Gornish at egornish@email.arizona.edu. Application reviews will start June 1 and will continue until the position is filled.
