|About Virginia Tech:||
Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university, committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Building on its motto of Ut Prosim (that I may serve), Virginia Tech is dedicated to InclusiveVT—serving in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. We seek candidates who adopt and practice the Principles of Community, which are fundamental to our on-going efforts to increase access and inclusion, and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members.

A postdoctoral position is available in the Muñoz Lab in Biological Sciences to study the ecological and evolutionary physiology of ectotherms using spatial analysis. The successful applicant will be part of collaborative research projects examining the geographic and phylogenetic distribution of physiological diversity. Projects may include paleoclimatic modeling of species’ distributions, mechanistic modeling under climate change scenarios, and spatial analysis of physiological and phylogenetic diversity. Amphibians and reptiles are preferred systems, though there is flexibility. Ideally the applicant has experience in some of the following approaches: mechanistic species distribution modeling, paleoclimatic modeling, spatial analyses, ecological physiology, and phylogenetic comparative methods. In addition to collaborating with lab projects, the applicant would also have room for independent research that relates to ecological/evolutionary physiology. Funds are available to assist with independent research projects.
