Description
Background Cougars (a.k.a mountain lions, pumas, panthers, Puma concolor) were extirpated from the eastern 2/3rds of their historic range early in the last century. In recent years, cougars have begun to recolonize portions of their historic range (i.e. the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Saskatchewan). Dispersing individuals are commonly observed in Manitoba and Michigan, and have been documented as far east as Connecticut. The postdoctoral researcher will conduct research into the natural recolonization process of cougars (Puma concolor) into their historical range of eastern North America. In particular, this project will seek to gain insight into the timing of, and obstacles to, reestablishment. The postdoctoral researcher will lead all aspects of the project while working closely with the principal investigators, Hugh Robinson (Wildlife Biology Program, University of Montana) and Mark Elbroch (Panthera). Responsibilities • Integrate available data including cougar resource selection and movement data to model probable timing and location of population establishment. • Publish results as a peer reviewed manuscript
Qualifications
Minimum requirement: 1. Ph.D. by start date in wildlife biology, landscape/spatial ecology, connectivity modeling, quantitative ecology, or related field. 2. Coding proficiency in R, python and/or NetLogo 3. Demonstrated desire and proven ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals. 4. Excellent written and personal communication skills. 5. The ability to work both independently and collaboratively, and the ability to meet deadlines. Desired Abilities: Competitive candidates will have a strong background in connectivity/movement ecology and population modeling. How to Apply: Applicants should send an email containing in a single pdf document: (1) a cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, and (3) the names and contact information (phone and email) of 3 references to Hugh Robinson (hugh.robinson@umontana.edu). For further information contact: Hugh Robinson.
