The Spatial Epidemiology & Ecology Research Laboratory is seeking a postdoc with expertise and interests in cervidae movements modeling, cervidae ecology, network modeling, disease ecology, and spatio-temporal analysis. SEER Lab, in collaboration with the Cervidae Health Research Initiative (CHeRI), both at the University of Florida, has been studying differences in high fenced deer ecology and wild deer ecology. As part of this, we have extensive GPS collar data, PIT tag data on stationary feeder usage (high fenced population), and feeder usage from camera traps. Additionally, we are modeling movements of deer between properties to better understand the cervidae industry. This postdoc position will assist with ongoing collar and camera trap efforts and model space use and feeding preferences. This is a collaborative effort between SEER Lab and CHeRI seeking a highly motivated postdoc to work collaboratively across groups of disease specialists focused on orbiviruses, vector biologists focused on midges transmitting orbiviruses, and spatial analysts. This postdoc will have access to extensive time series of animal movements (collars and between ranches through transport) and midge collections. Data analysis will be across scales from individual home range use and revisitation metrics to statewide estimates of herd movements (through transport).
PhD in ecology, biology, geography with proven ability to publish required. Preference will be given to candidates with proven expertise in spatial analysis of collar data or network modeling. A PhD at the time of hire is required. Applicants with experience capturing cervids and/or extensive experience with camera trapping data will be prioritized. To apply: Send a detailed letter of interest describing background and expertise, an up-to-date CV, and writing samples (e.g. peer reviewed papers), and a list of at least three references (complete contact information, please) to Dr. Jason Blackburn ( with Deer Postdoc in the message title. SEER Lab is an equal opportunity employer with a dedicated safe space for all.
