It’s probably not really to our benefit to be advertising competing positions when we’re currently looking for a post-doc ourselves, but this is a great opportunity so I thought I’d pass it along. The Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State has a post-doctoral fellowship available to work with one (or more) of it’s faculty. It is available to work with anyone in the department, but I would recommend checking out the labs of Peter Adler (plant community ecology) and David Koons (population ecology). I’ve worked with Peter and interact regularly with both Peter and Dave. They are both smart, young, enthusiastic faculty and you couldn’t go wrong working with either of them. Here’s the full ad:
