The Hakai Institute and the Smithsonian Institution’s MarineGEO program seek candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellow based at the University of British Columbia to lead a detailed assessment and analysis of biodiversity in coastal benthic habitats of the Calvert Island Marine Station on the Central Coast of British Columbia.
The position is part of an ongoing research program aiming to understand nearshore biodiversity of this unique region. We seek a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead a detailed biological inventory of this region (‘BioBlitz’), and develop research that takes advantage of this inventory and existing biological datasets to advance our comparative understanding and quantitative estimates of biodiversity in the North Pacific region. The Fellow’s time will be split equally between leading the “BioBlitz” and complementary biodiversity research, with data analysis/manuscript preparation stemming from these two activities.
Application review begins March 27, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.
