Details

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Biological Sciences available at Texas A&M University – San Antonio in the United States of America. The position will be a member of a cohort of five departmental postdoctoral fellows, three of whom are to be hired along with three new research active faculty in the Department of Life Sciences. As part of the inaugural cohort of “Life Science Postdoctoral Fellows”, each fellow will participate in a mentored, guided program of professional development, attend regular journal clubs and lab meetings and receive support and guidance in grant and fellowship writing.

Summary

Postdoctoral Fellowship at Texas A&M University is in the laboratory of Principal Investigator (PI) Dr. Charles M. Watson. The Watson Lab incorporates standard field research techniques, museum collection data, GIS, and controlled laboratory experiments to address questions related to physiological ecology, predator/prey interactions, the evolution of viviparity, and wildlife conservation.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will be primarily employed as an effector of the research agenda of the PI. Given the short duration of this initial appointment, a major part of that agenda will be to secure funding for continued employment via the writing of grant proposals pertaining to physiological ecology and the evolution of viviparity in squamates.
