The Keitt Lab at the University of Texas at Austin seeks a postdoctoral scholar to join our team. With funding through UT’s Bridging Barriers program, we are investigating how climate and landscape change is affecting the biogeography of species and communities across Texas and beyond. Candidates with interests in landscape genetics, eco-evolutionary dynamics or near-term iterative forecasting are especially encouraged to apply.
Our Mongolia project "CNH2-L: Using Sound to Advance Conceptual Frameworks of Resilience of Integrated Grassland-Pastoralist Systems" has been awarded by NSF. The project will examine resilience in the context of traditional ecologoical knowlege and soundscapes. This is in collaboration with folks at Purdue and Read more about NSF Award
