Un trabajo para doctores en el Universidad de Chicago

 Por medio de Paleonet nos ha llegado información de un puesto para doctores en la Universidad de Chicago. Es para investigar en la diversidad y su relación con la latitud. Os adjuntamos la información.

Seeking a postdoctoral scholar to participate in an ongoing collaborative research project (D. Jablonski-K. Roy-J. W. Valentine) on the evolutionary history and future of modern spatial patterns of diversity, such as the latitudinal gradient. Marine bivalves will be used as a model system due to
their excellent fossil record, ecology diversity and highly resolved taxonomy. Research involves quantifying present-day biogeographic patterns, quantifying the Cenozoic spatial and evolutionary dynamics underlying them, and relating these patterns to environmental change. 

Postdoctoral scholar will assist in analyses and modeling of diversity dynamics, and take the lead on some new research projects. Experience in some combination of modeling, statistical, phylogenetic, and spatial (GIS) analyses and/or database management required. Familiarity with paleontological, climatic and/or biogeographic data is preferable. One-year appointment renewable for one or more additional years. Starting date negotiable but prefer summer to early fall 2012. Requires either Ph.D in hand or dissertation submitted and approved for degree. 

Please email a letter documenting research interests and experience, a CV, and the email addresses of two references to Dr. Andrew Z. Krug (akrug@uchicago.edu) at the University of Chicago. Applications required by July 1, 2012 for full consideration.
