A two-year postdoc position available to characterize mammalian diversity distribution and habitat use in a coupled human natural system. This position is appointed by the newly established PKU-SDSU Complex Human-Environment Systems (CHES) Center co-sponsored by San Diego State University and Peking University, China. The postdoctoral candidate will join an international, interdisciplinary, multi-institutional research team on an NSF funded project “CNH-L: People, Place, and Payments in Complex Human-Environment Systems” (http://complexities.org/interPES/), funded by NSF's Coupled Natural and Human Systems Program (PI: Dr. Li An, SDSU). The project aims to better understand the mechanisms that underlie two Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) programs in China, which are some of the largest in the world, and their associated ecological and socio-economic outcomes.

We are seeking a highly qualified and experienced candidate to join our research team and lead efforts to build on analyses aimed at understanding the reciprocal relationships between plant and animal diversity as a function of large-scale and local landscape metrics and human activity in the context of PES programs in Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve, China. Candidates must demonstrate scholarship, leadership and have at least 5 years of experience conducting ecological research. Candidates with research experience with PES programs, have worked in China, and have knowledge of the Chinese language and culture are preferred.

Applicants should have strong interest or background in ecology, conservation and GIScience (UAV data, remote sensing and GIS in particular). Strong quantitative skills (e.g., occupancy and other quantitative modeling, statistics), excellent interpersonal skills, strong writing capacity and publication record, and willingness to work in a range of different international and interdisciplinary contexts (e.g., work on variable terrain in rural areas, or with people of varying background or culture) are desirable. Salary and benefits are competitive. The ideal starting date will be Spring 2020. Candidates should direct questions to Dr. Rebecca Lewison
(<mailto:rlewison@sdsu.edu>), Dr. Hongyan Liu (lhy@urban.pku.edu.cn), and Dr. Li An (lan@sdsu.edu).

Application materials include: (1) letter of application, (2) CV or resume, (3) academic statement, (4) personal statement, (5) transcripts, (6) list of 3-4 references (names and contact information), and (7) up to three representative publications. Please send your application packet to Dr. Rebecca Lewison (rlewison@sdsu.edu), Dr. Hongyan Liu (lhy@urban.pku.edu.cn), and Dr. Doug Stow (dstow@sdsu.edu), Dr. Li An (lan@sdsu.edu).
