Description
The postdoc will conduct spatial data analysis and writing as part of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) Wildlife Movement and Migration program. Habitat conservation for elk, mule deer, and pronghorn was recently emphasized in the United States Department of Interior Sectorial Order (SO) 3362, which was initiated in 2018 and mandated federal support for enhancing habitat quality of big-game winter range and migration routes across the western states. As part of this effort, FWP has developed a standard set of methods to delineate elk, mule deer, and pronghorn winter ranges, summer ranges, and migration routes for all populations where GPS collars have been deployed. Although this is an important initial step in identifying priority habitat areas statewide with standard methodology, the effort is nonetheless specific to populations with GPS collar data and leaves broad information gaps across the state. The goal of this project is to build species-specific statewide winter habitat models for elk, mule deer and pronghorn. Statewide habitat models would help to inform broad-scale management and conservation, and provide predictions of habitat for populations and locales lacking spatial wildlife data. The postdoc will lead the analysis of existing GPS datasets, as well as design and develop statewide predictive models of elk, mule deer and pronghorn winter habitat. The postdoc will be involved in project development, data analysis and scientific writing. The position will require experience using Program R to manage large telemetry datasets and conduct spatial analyses. Experience using Program R to manage large datasets and to develop and conduct spatial analyses of wildlife telemetry data is required. The position will require excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to coordinate with multiple agency and University staff. An interest in working closely with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks staff to develop relevant questions and communicate research findings is required. The position is 2-years in duration and based in Bozeman, MT.
Qualifications
1. PhD in Wildlife Biology, Wildlife Management, or Ecology. 2. Experience using Program R to conduct spatial analysis of wildlife telemetry data. 3. Lead author on a minimum of 1 peer-reviewed publication. Please send cover letter addressing the three minimum requirements and resume that includes contact information for 3 references to Kelly Proffitt (kproffitt@mt.gov) by Oct 31, 2021.
