TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN GLOBAL HEALTH AND SUSTAINABILITY IN THE ROHR LAB

POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE IN SUSTAINABILITY AND GLOBAL HEALTH

Applications are invited for several postdoctoral positions focusing on ecology/sustainability, global health, and phenology in the laboratory of Dr. Jason Rohr (https://www.jasonrohrlab.com; https://dfews.nd.edu/; https://biology.nd.edu/people/jason-rohr/; http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=yaRksUAAAAAJ&hl=en) in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN; https://biology.nd.edu/).

This project focuses on the interface between human helminth infections and sustainability. This project has two positions. One focuses on modeling efforts to quantify the net health and ecosystem service benefits of mass drug administration to control the five major human helminths globally, requiring a candidate that is proficient in R and preferably has experience with analyses at large spatial scales that highlight global health. The second position focuses on conducting experiments at the interface of sustainability and human schistosomiasis control in Africa (https://dfews.nd.edu/), and thus the candidate must be willing to spend substantial portions of time conducting field research in Africa. It would also be helpful if the candidate knew some French or was willing to learn enough French to get by in Western Africa.

All candidates must be highly organized, resourceful, creative, independent, hardworking, capable of working as part of a team, and competent with manuscript writing and communicating science. The position has numerous opportunities to collaborate with members of the Rohr lab, other laboratories at the University of Notre Dame, such as the Perkins lab (http://perkinslab.weebly.com/), Notre Dame’s Environmental Change Initiative (https://environmentalchange.nd.edu/) and the Eck Institute of Global Health (https://globalhealth.nd.edu/). There are also opportunities to collaborate with economists and sociologists from other institutions associated with these projects. There is the potential of 2+ years of funding and the start date is flexible, but earlier start dates are preferred.

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, brief statement of research interests (<2 pages), and list of references as a single pdf to Dr.
Jason Rohr (jrohr2@nd.edu) with the subject line of the email reading “Postdoc Application (insert last name)”. For example: Postdoc
Application Smith. Please specify in the cover letter the position in which you are most interested. All applications received before 5/19/2021 will receive full consideration. The position will remain open until filled.
