Rose Postdoctoral Fellow-CA Acad of Sciences

A postdoctoral research position is available to conduct research on cycads at the California Academy of Sciences. This position reports to the Associate Curator of Botany within the Institute of Biodiversity Science and Sustainability and the successful candidate is expected to work in this collaborative environment. This is a temporary one year position with the possibility of renewal for up to two years, contingent on research progress. The fellow will conduct research on the population genetics of Australian cycads to examine the roles of pollination and seed dispersal in gene flow to inform cycad conservation. However, applicants with expertise in any area of plant evolution will be given full consideration. The candidate will contribute to the development of herbarium and genomic collections, and bioinformatic resources at the California Academy of Sciences. Additionally, public outreach through in-person and online interactions will be a component of the position.
