The University of Florida Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience is hiring a postdoctoral associate to explore the biomechanics of filter-feeding in large fishes, including manta rays and whale sharks. We seek a highly motivated applicant who has obtained a Ph.D. in biology, physics, engineering or a related field. Research experience at the intersection between biology and engineering or physics is highly valued.
The successful candidate will join the Strother Lab, which focuses on questions at the interface between physiology and neurobiology using fishes as model organisms. The Strother Lab is located at the UF Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, a research center dedicated to studying fundamental problems in biology and applying that knowledge to issues of human health, natural resources, and the environment. The Whitney Laboratory is situated in St. Augustine, Florida between the Atlantic and the Matanzas River, where researchers enjoy access to a unique biodiversity of plants and animals.
The Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience is committed to creating an equitable and inclusive environment that promotes diversity in many forms. We particularly welcome applicants who can contribute to this environment through their scholarship and professional service.
· PhD in Biology, Physics, Engineering or a related field
· Research experience in biological fluid dynamics
· Ability to implement complex analysis through programming
· Strong communication and writing skills
· Prior experience with computational fluid dynamics is preferred
Please send inquiries and applications to Dr. Strother at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications should include a CV that provides a list of publications and the names of three references. Applications will be reviewed immediately, and the position will remain open until filled. To ensure full consideration, application materials should be received by April 30, 2021.
All candidates for employment are subject to a pre-employment screening which includes a review of criminal records, reference checks, and verification of education.
