We seek applicants for an independent postdoctoral fellowship in the Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems, and Society (EEES) Graduate Program at Dartmouth College. The ideal candidate will possess a PhD in the natural sciences by the time of the appointment and will work specifically in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology but will engage with the broader EEES community. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue independent and collaborative research projects in ecology and evolutionary biology. In addition, the fellow will be responsible for enhancing undergraduate and graduate student education and will lead a graduate seminar course or working group dedicated to developing a research product. The ideal candidate will be a strong contributing member of the vibrant EEES community at Dartmouth and will foster productive discourse both within and beyond the program. EEES is a diverse community of scholars who conduct innovative research in the natural sciences and interdisciplinary environmental social sciences, including ecology, evolution, anthropology, environmental economics, geography and earth sciences. Applicants should identify in their cover letter one or more faculty with whom their research interests align as sponsors from the EEES program and describe how their research interests fit within current or future projects with their sponsors at Dartmouth.
