Bridging Positions in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

The University of Michigan Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology ( invites applicants for two bridging postdoctoral programs: the Literature, Science, and the Arts Collegiate Fellows Program (LCFP) and the U­M Presidential Post­doctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP). Faculty members in EEB have successful records of providing a nurturing and productive postdoctoral experience through these programs. We are especially interested in future colleagues who engage in research in the fields of 1.) plant biodiversity or 2.) population and evolutionary genetics (with an emphasis on theoretical approaches).

The University of Michigan Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the University by offering the possibility of either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure track faculty appointment.

N.B. Applications for the LCFP and PPFP open September 1. In addition to the materials required by both programs, applicants should submit their materials directly to EEB by October 1.
