subject: Post-doc position modelling Caribbean reefs

Applications are invited for a two year post-doctoral position at the
University of Exeter (UK) modelling the effects of climate change on
Caribbean coral reefs. The post-doc will develop an existing model of
coral-algal-grazer-disturbance interactions and extend it to seascape
scales, embracing the connectivities across lagoon and reef habitats. The
post-doc will also liase with collaborators in the integration of ecological
and socio-economic models of ecosystem services.

Applications are invited from individuals with a track record in spatial
modelling. The position does not involve field work but a familiarity with
coral reef dynamics would be  advantageous. The successful candidate should
be proficient in programming Matlab, R, or C. A background in theoretical
ecology and Bayesian statistics would also be beneficial.

The position will start within the next few months (negotiable) and
applications are invited by postal mail. Feel free to e-mail me for further
details but I'd prefer to receive applications by post. Please include a CV,
covering letter of your research background and an example of your modelling
work (e.g. reprints). The closing date for applications is Feb 18th.
