New postdoc opportunity!

Postdoctoral position – social networks of paper wasps

We are excited to announce an opening for a postdoctoral researcher position to work on a newly NSF-funded project, which is a collaboration between the Pinter-Wollman (UCLA) and Tibbets (U. Michigan) labs on “Process and consequences of social partner choice revealed by multilayer network analysis”. The work will build on recent advances in automated tracking and social network analysis (specifically multilayer network analysis) to assess how social partner choice decisions are made, how individuals differ in partner choice decisions, and the evolutionary consequences of partner choice in nest-founding queen paper wasps, Polistes fuscatus.

While the position will be based at UCLA, the work will be conducted in close collaboration with the U Michigan team. The postdoctoral scholar’s research activities will focus on image analysis, data processing, and the development and implementation of multilayer network analysis. We are therefore looking for candidates with strong quantitative skills and preferably with experience in social network analysis and/or image analysis.

Salary will be commensurate with experience and will follow the UCLA postdoctoral salary scale. Candidates are required to hold a PhD before their start date. Start date is flexible and can be as early as June 1, 2022.

To apply please email your CV and a brief statement of interest to nmpinter [at] ucla [dot] edu.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
