Jobs, Internships, MS & Ph.D. Positions
University of Tennessee
We are seeking two post-doctoral researchers to join an interdisciplinary team researching potential impacts on species of climate and land use change, and how consideration of these impacts should inform conservation strategies. The post-docs will join a team researching these issues in a set of projects focused on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the central and southern Appalachians and the Southeastern U.S. more broadly.
