APAP believes that pay transparency is a critical step toward pay equity and benefits both the job seeker and the employer. For those reasons, we are now requiring that employers include a salary range in all new job postings.
Postings that are backfilled from another association’s career center may not include salary information.
Population Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
University of Nebraska Lincoln
Location: Lincoln, Nebraska
Internal Number: 89492
Requisition Number: F_240013
Department: School of Biological Sciences-1076
Description of Work:
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is seeking applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in the Population Biology Program of Excellence.
The goal of the Population Biology-POE Postdoctoral Fellowship is to stimulate synergistic interactions between faculty and postdoctoral scholars broadly interested in the area of Population Biology. We are seeking applicants who have recently completed, or will soon complete, their Ph.D. and who conduct cutting edge research related to faculty research areas in the Ecology, Evolution & Behavior (EEB) section in the School of Biological Sciences (https://biosci.unl.edu/research-areas). POE postdoctoral fellows pursue a research program under the sponsorship of an EEB faculty member and are expected to enhance graduate education, serve as a model for graduate students in career development, and promote interactions among faculty at UNL. While in residence, the postdoctoral fellow is expected to lead a seminar, symposium, or outreach project that will appeal to Population Biologists across campus. Research descriptions for past and current POE postdoctoral fellows can be viewed at http://biosci.unl.edu/population-biology/.
The expected salary will be $45,000 per year. We anticipate notifying the successful applicant by April 30, 2024, with an expected starting date between August 1 and September 1, 2024.
EEB faculty at UNL are highly integrative and collaborative, using a wide array of approaches and study systems to study a diverse set of biological questions, from the molecular determinants of adaptation and speciation to multimodal animal communication to the community ecology of extinct mammals to the ecology and evolution of infectious disease. Lincoln is consistently rated as one of the best places to live in America, with a low cost of living, over 130 miles of bike trails throughout the city, and a vibrant restaurant and music scene.
The successful applicant must have completed their degree by the start date. Priority will be given to applicants who are new to UNL.
