Update, 6 October: Thanks to everyone who has written in to apply for a position! I’ll try to respond to your inquiries in the next day or so; we’ll continue to accept applications until next Monday, 13 October before making any final decisions. —Jeremy
The Molecular Ecologist is seeking new regular contributors to join our community of commenters discussing population genetics in ecology and evolutionary biology.
We are interested in contributors with expertise and experience in our core topic, the applications of genetic data in understanding the past and future of living populations. Preference is given for senior graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and other working scientists who can discuss basic science on a level that engages our core community of research biologists. Ideal candidates will also be interested in explaining fundamental molecular ecology concepts to the general public.
Successful candidates will recieve a small stipend in exchange for meeting posting goals over a 6-month term, with the option to renew pending availability and satisfactory performance.
To apply, please e-mail a brief cover letter explaining why you want to write for The Molecular Ecologist, with a writing sample, to Jeremy Yoder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
