George Gaylord Simpson Postdoctoral Fellowships in Vertebrate 
Systematics and Evolution - University of Arizona

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology announces three 
postdoctoral fellowship positions for Fall 2008, named in honor of G. 
G. Simpson's long tenure at the University of Arizona. Simpson 
Fellows are expected to conduct an active research program that is 
facilitated and complemented by the Department's extensive natural 
history collections in ichthyology, herpetology, ornithology, and 
mammalogy. The EEB collections have a strong taxonomic focus on the 
fauna of the southwest United States, northwest Mexico, the Gulf of 
California and the Eastern Pacific. The positions are part of a 
renewed commitment to natural history collections on the University 
of Arizona campus and a new initiative in biodiversity informatics. 
Postdoctoral Fellows are encouraged to establish research 
collaborations with faculty in the Department of Ecology and 
Evolutionary Biology. Responsibilities of the positions include 
teaching one course per year in the Fellow's taxonomic specialty. 
Salary is $37,500 plus benefits. A research stipend of $5000 will 
also be included. The positions are renewable for at least two years 
based on satisfactory performance.

Applicants should submit application materials online at the 
University of Arizona Human Resources website 
(https://www.uacareertrack.com; look for job #39290), including C.V., 
statement of research and teaching interests and experience, and two 
letters of reference. Position is open until filled, but we 
anticipate reviewing applications beginning on Nov. 15, 2007. Contact 
Dr. Peter Reinthal (pnr at email.arizona.edu), Dr. Alex Badyaev 
(abadyaev at email.arizona.edu) or Dr. Michael Sanderson (sanderm at email. 
arizona.edu) for further information.
