- The Department of Biology at the University of Saskatchewan is seeking a 12-month postdoctoral fellow to lead two projects focused on movement ecology of migratory birds. The first project comprises development of novel movement models, streamlining GPS-acceleration (ACC) tracking device duty cycles, and data summarization to connect the full annual cycle and prioritize conservation investments for waterfowl. The second project harnesses the full annual approach to study greater white-fronted geese representing five populations distributed in Asia, Europe and North America. The postdoctoral fellow will use an existing (and building) data set from GPS-ACC tracking devices deployed on greater white-fronted geese to quantify and compare migration strategies, movements and behavior to guide next steps in global conservation planning of this species. There also are opportunities to explore population-specific research questions, consistent with the expertise of the selected candidate. In addition, there will be opportunities to collaborate on several projects in movement and population ecology in the Weegman lab. This project is an international partnership among researchers at Aarhus University (Denmark), Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Canadian Wildlife Service, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Institute for Waterbird and Wetlands Research (Germany), Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Leiden University (Netherlands), Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior (Germany), National Parks and Wildlife Service (Ireland), Texas A&M University-Kingsville, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, University of Saskatchewan, US Fish and Wildlife Service and US Geological Survey.
