Objet: [info.statphys] postdoc position available at the interface of statistical physics and ecology

Dear colleagues,

Alan Hastings, Karen Abbott and I are seeking a
postdoc to work on problems at the interface between statistical
physics and theoretical spatial ecology.  This position will be
supported by our recently awarded NSF grant, RoL:FELS:RAISE: Integrating
statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics to understand
emergent synchrony and phase transitions in biological systems
.  The ideal individual will
have expertise in statistical physics including computational
methods and the theory of phase transitions, as well as some
experience with models of biological systems, particularly spatial
ecological systems.  The
position will be based at UC Davis and there will be opportunities
to spend time both at the University of Massachusetts Amherst
(Machta) and at Case Western Reserve University (Abbott).

The ideal start date will be between July 1,
2019 and September 1, 2019.  The
initial term will be 1 year with extension for up to two more
years with satisfactory performance. 
Salary and benefits are competitive.  The University of California
is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong
institutional commitment to the development of a climate that
supports equality of opportunity and respect for diversity.

Responsibilities:

Under the guidance of the PI’s, the postdoc
will develop and analyze models inspired by statistical physics to
describe the dynamics of spatially coupled oscillating ecological
systems and use these models to understand data from ecological
systems.

How to
apply:

Email a
cover letter describing your background and interests in the
position, cv, and contact information for 3 references to Alan
Hastings (amhastings@ucdavis.edu).  The position is open until
filled.

Sincerely,

Jon Machta
