levels. The ideal candidate will be an individual with experience using a
combination of GIS, remote sensing, modeling, and field experimentation to
understand population, community, or ecosystem patterns and processes at

preparation. The candidate is also expected to supervise both graduate and
undergraduate students.

with landscape ecology, web design and maintenance, experience with
field-based research, and willingness to travel and participate in
intensive field activities as needed for ~90 days per year. Other desirable
