POSITION ANNOUNCEMENTS

Avian Agro-Ecology Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, & Conservation Biology- University of California, Davis

Application review begin date: May 15, 2017

Start dates are flexible, but expected around the Fall of 2017.

SUMMARY:

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher with expertise in agro-ecology, community ecology, and/or conservation biology to join Daniel Karp’s lab in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California, Davis. The appointment will be for one-year with the possibility of extension based on performance.

The postdoctoral researcher will join a collaborative and interdisciplinary team of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates focused on exploring strategies to manage birds and bird-mediated ecosystem services on strawberries fields in California agro-ecosystems. The team is based at UC Davis (Prof. Daniel Karp), UC Berkeley (Profs. Kathryn De Master), UC Riverside (Prof. Erin Wilson Rankin), Washington State University (Prof. William Snyder), and the University of British Columbia (Profs. Jiaying Zhao and Kai Chan), and is supported through the United States Department of Agriculture’s BENRE program area.

Birds are increasingly viewed as pests and potential foodborne disease vectors in farmlands. Yet birds also benefit growers by consuming pests. The core aims of this project are to: (1) identify pest, disease vector, and beneficial bird species and quantify their net economic impact on strawberry crops, (2) determine how farms could be co-managed to achieve conservation, food safety, and production goals, and (3) explore how farmers’ values and attitudes towards birds influence farming practices. Through our socio-ecological approach and by disseminating findings in workshops and with decision-support tools, this project has great scope for changing practices and reframing grower attitudes towards birds.

The project postdoc, with advice and mentorship from Karp and other project personnel, will be responsible for the execution of ecological field research including: bird and insect censuses across 20 farms, nest monitoring, and exclosure experiments. The postdoc will also coordinate a mist-netting program to obtain bird fecal samples, which will be used to build bird diet profiles

though DNA meta-barcoding. In the field, the postdoc will oversee undergraduate assistants and work with a project coordinator to recruit and maintain relationships with growers. Two 3-month field seasons in the California Central Coast are anticipated. The postdoc will be additionally responsible for (1) helping coordinate monthly project meetings, (2) data management, (3) statistical analysis and modeling of ecological field data, (4) preparation and submission of academic manuscripts, and (5) development and dissemination of outreach materials.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • A Ph.D. in Ecology or a closely related field.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills and an ability to work both independently and collaboratively with researchers, growers, and practitioners from different backgrounds.
  • Experience designing, planning, and executing ecological field research.
  • Demonstrated ability to follow through on project deliverables and communicate findings in high quality peer-reviewed journals.
  • Strong statistical skills and demonstrated proficiency with R or another statistical program.

Fish Conservation Physiology and Molecular Biology Postdoctoral Researchers in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation and School of Veterinary Medicine – University of California, Davis

Application review begin date: May 1, 2017

Start dates are flexible, but expected between late spring and fall of 2017

SUMMARY:

We are seeking two highly motivated, organized, and dynamic Postdoctoral Researchers with experience in Molecular Biology and Fish Conservation Physiology to join the labs of Drs. Richard Connon and Nann Fangue in the School of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California Davis (UCD). Appointments will be for one year with a possibility for extension to two or three years.

The Postdoctoral Researchers will join a collaborative and integrative team composed of faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students studying fish physiology and behavior, and using transcriptomics to understand mechanisms behind organismal resilience to environmental change, with the ultimate goal of improving conservation and management activities.

Broadly, our research focuses on physiology, behavior, and reproductive impairment of fishes, and the integration of this information into current and future management plans. These Postdoctoral Researchers would be working on the physiological ecology of juvenile threatened, endangered and invasive California fishes, and their behavioral and physiological responses to environmental stressors, such as anthropogenic disturbances and climate change.

The primary responsibility of one Postdoctoral Researcher will be to oversee and perform experiments relating to Chinook salmon, thermal stress and disease project funded by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW; Prop 1). This projects has a high level of collaboration across multiple agencies (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; NOAA, US Fish and Wildlife Service; FWS, CDFW) as well as multiple academics. The goals of this project are to provide critical information about the physiology of outmigrating Chinook salmon and risks of predation associated with pathogen infection. The researcher will engage in experiments aimed to understand how temperature changes and disease progression impact the immune system by means of transcriptomics. The project also incorporates using DNA screening techniques to evaluate a suite of pathogens in salmon tissues, as well as water samples by means of environmental DNA (eDNA) with the ultimate goal of modeling outmigration survival and predation risk.

The second Postdoctoral Researcher will oversee and participate in a multi-PI, collaborative toxicology research project, relating to a project funded by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (Prop 1). The goal of this project is to evaluate the impact of pyrethroid pesticide exposures on egg-embryo development resulting via parental exposures (dietary) as well as early life stage aqueous exposures. Temperature and salinity are key variable driving or mediating the toxicity of pyrethroids in development, which is cause for concern in highly altered environments such as the Central Valley of California. Several agencies are interested in gaining more insight into how early rearing environments that are impacted by contaminants, can affect threatened fish populations. Data gained form this research will be used to inform managers of potential risks associated with exposure.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • A Ph.D. in Ecology, Physiology, Animal Behavior, Molecular Biology or a closely related field.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively with researchers and students from many different scientific backgrounds, including agency partners and stakeholders.

Two Postdoctoral Positions in Fish Conservation Physiology and Behavior

We are seeking two highly motivated, organized, and dynamic scientists to fill Postdoctoral Researcher positions in Fish Conservation Physiology and Behavior in the lab of Dr. Nann Fangue in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California Davis (UCD). The Postdoctoral Researchers will join a collaborative and integrative team composed of faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students studying the physiology and behavior of fishes with the ultimate goal of improving conservation and management activities. Broadly, the laboratory focuses on the behavioral and physiological ecology of fishes, and the integration of this information into current and future management plans. These Postdoctoral Researchers would be working on the physiological ecology of juvenile anadromous California fishes, and their behavioral and physiological responses to
environmental stressors, such as anthropogenic disturbances or climate change.

The primary responsibility of one Postdoctoral Researcher will be to oversee and perform experiments within a 3-year project in collaboration with the UCD Department of Civil Engineering, funded by the California Department of Water Resources. The goals of this project are to provide critical information about the behavior and physiology of juvenile green sturgeon near fish protection devices (such as louvers) that are used at large-scale water pumping facilities to reduce or eliminate entrainment into the pumping plants. The researcher will engage in experiments aimed to understand how changes in environmental variables (such as water velocity, temperature, time of day, etc.) or ontogeny may influence the behavior and physiology of juvenile sturgeon, and alter interactions with fish protection devices. This project also includes the study of predation risk for juvenile green sturgeon in the presence of several native and non-native predatory fish species.

The second Postdoctoral Researcher will oversee and participate in several other research projects in the laboratory, including a 3-year project (funded by the Delta Science Program ,DSP) quantifying the effects of rearing temperature and food availability on larval green sturgeon growth and development, as well as the measurement of a variety of physiological endpoints including swimming performance and aerobic scope. Temperature is a key variable driving or mediating many important physiological properties, and is also a cause for concern in highly altered environments such as the Central Valley of California. Several agencies are interested in gaining more insight into how early rearing environments may affect threatened fish populations, and variables such as temperature can be more effectively managed to improve larval and juvenile survival. These data will be incorporated into bioenergetic and river temperature models through ongoing collaboration with colleagues at the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and will be used to inform managers of potential ways to improve current management actions.

Junior Specialist - The Role of Agricultural Habitats in Meeting Waterfowl Needs in the Central Valley of California

We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to undertake a survey of the role of agricultural habitats in meeting waterfowl needs in the Central Valley of California.

The Central Valley Joint Venture (CVJV) assumes that waterfowl in the Central Valley rely on three major foraging habitats: managed seasonal wetlands, harvested rice fields and harvested grain corn fields. Because two of these three habitat types are provided by agricultural producers, it is critically important to understand how these private lands are being managed relative to waterfowl needs. Specifically, we need to understand the current contribution of agricultural sources to waterfowl food energy supplies, how that may change in the future, and what those future changes would mean to waterfowl. Our greatest areas of uncertainty center on post-harvest practices other than winter-flooding, or on post-harvest practices that precede winter-flooding. For example the CVJV's assumptions about the post­ harvest treatment of rice and corn fields that are not flooded are over 25 years old, and are based on the Joint Venture's 1989 implementation plan. Even recent estimates of food availability in rice fields are compromised by uncertainty  over these post-harvest practices (i.e. those being used in the CVJV plan update). To determine the amount of food provided by rice, we need to understand how rice fields are stratified among the various post-harvest practices used by California producers and sample waste rice in each of these post-harvest categories. There are three critical areas of information need:

(1) a clear understanding of current  post-harvest practices used by rice growers and grain corn growers and the acreage subjected to each;

(2) estimates of the current  food/energy value provided under each of these treatment types; and

(3) projection of future changes in these practices.

The successful candidate will work collaboratively with the Raveling Waterfowl Program at UC Davis and with partners from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited and California Department of Fish & Wildlife to develop and implement surveys to provide this information. The successful candidates will participate in research on the availability and importance of food in agricultural fields for wintering waterfowl. This position will also conduct research on grower post-harvest management practices and futures trends in these practices. The Junior Specialist will be required to be actively and significantly involved in publishable research activities, including reviewing journal articles and engaging in discussions on research and the interpretation of research results

The Junior Specialist will design and conduct field surveys to identify and define the post-harvest practices currently used by California rice growers and grain corn growers, and conduct a survey of locations/landowners providing a representative sample of rice and corn fields in different regions of the central valley. Duties will include working with partner agencies to develop the survey design, conducting field surveys and meeting with landowners to validate visual roadside surveys. The Junior Specialist will further conduct field sampling to assess the residual rice and corn that remains after harvest. This will require coordination with a large number of growers, sampling at multiple locations throughout the valley, leading a team of assistants and undertaking laboratory analysis of cores and clips taken from sample plots to measure residual seeds. The Junior Specialist will also help to develop a complementary mail-in survey of growers, involving development of the questions, mailings, data collection, data entry and analysis of survey results, summary and write-up of the survey findings. Some of these activities may involve site visits with partner biologists and landowners/growers, independent site visits or interviews with landowners and managers to complete the information survey, or telephone and written contacts with mangers and landowners.

Expectations for Professional Competence and Activity include: participation in appropriate technical committees and other educational and research organizations; and development of research proposals, journal manuscripts, and publications related to area of expertise. The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal, communication, and decision-making skills; as well as the ability to work well independently and as part of a team. The Junior Specialist must have extensive field experience, be knowledgeable of agricultural practices in the Central Valley, have knowledge and training in waterfowl and wetland ecology, and be able to drive through the valley conducting field assessments

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Bachelor degree in wildlife ecology / biology
  • Field research experience, date entry and data management
  • Interest and familiarity with waterfowl management and ecology
  • Interest and experience conducting field surveys
  • Ability to work independently, outside in various weather conditions
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Drivers license
  • Ability to work with partner biologists and landowners.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Experience conducting independent studies and surveys in the field.
  • Strong experience and training in waterfowl & wetland ecology and management.
  • Experience working with agricultural partners and growers.

SALARY RANGE:  Step I - $37,548 (100% annual + benefits)

POSITION AVAILABLE/CLOSING DATE: For full consideration, apply by August 31, 2016. Applications received after this date will only be considered if the position has not yet been filled.

TERM OF APPOINTMENT:  50-100% for 12 months October 1, 2016 – September 30, 2017 with possibility of renewal contingent on funding.
