Post-Doctoral Position

National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

University of California at Santa Barbara

The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis
(NCEAS) invites applications for a postdoctoral position
for the project entitled "Developing the Theory of Marine
Reserves." Under the leadership of Jane Lubchenco, Steve
Palumbi, and Steve Gaines, this project will focus on
developing the theoretical basis for the design and
implementation of marine reserves. The postdoctoral
researcher's activities will include collecting and
summarizing existing data on marine reserves, providing
support for the working group, and participating in the
development of theory, models, and experimental design
protocols for marine reserves. A considerable amount
of demographic and/or genetic modeling and computer
programming is anticipated. The successful applicant
will reside at NCEAS for 18 months as a member of this
working group. The estimated start date for this
position is April 1, 1998. Review of applications will
begin March 1, 1998.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in ecology or a closely-
related field and have a strong background in ecological
or genetic modeling. The position is open to persons
with experience in any ecological system (terrestrial,
freshwater, etc.), but experience in marine ecology and
oceanography would be an asset. Prospective applicants
should obtain a copy of the project proposal from the
NCEAS Web site at

Applicants will send a letter of application which
explains his/her interest in the project, a CV, and
the names (with email addresses) of three referees.
Applications should have Marine Reserves as the subject
field and should be directed to postapp at
or by mail to:

     Frank Davis, Deputy Director
