If you have questions about the Finnegan Lab, the UCMP, or the Department of Integrative Biology, please feel free to contact me. Note that our application deadline is December 1, earlier than many other Ph.D programs. Right now the lab is pretty full, so I do not plan to take any new Ph.D students for the 2018-2019 academic year. I do hope to take on new students for the 2019-2020 academic year.
I am often searching for postdoctoral researchers with expertise in one or more of the following areas: (1) Stable isotope biogeochemistry, particularly as applied to marine fossils and sediments, (2) Marine paleoecology, macroecology and/or niche modeling, (3) Macroevolutionary dynamics. Candidates should have a Ph.D awarded in the past 4 years, a demonstrated ability to initiate and lead collaborative research projects, and a strong publication record. Field experience with marine fossils, sediments, and/or sedimentary rocks is preferred but not essential depending on the area of expertise. Interested candidates who fit this description should contact me.
