We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work with an interdisciplinary team on a quantitative study that explores potential drivers of climate-change vulnerability for relatively poorly studied species. This position will be an initial 24-month appointment.

The successful candidate will undertake quantitative analysis and data syntheses to develop models and typologies that assess climate-change vulnerability. They will lead or contribute to studies that 1) use spatial and quantitative modeling to identify and assess the general factors that influence species risk of climate-driven population decline and redistribution, and 2) develop a classification of species’ adaptive capacity and sensitivity to climate change. Additional areas of research could include evaluating the accuracy of trait-based vulnerability assessments and exploring approaches for imputing missing data in trait-based assessments.

The UW and School of Environmental and Forest Sciences promote diversity and inclusivity among our students, faculty, staff, and public. Thus, we are strongly seeking candidates whose experiences have prepared them to fulfill our commitment to inclusion and have given them the confidence to fully engage audiences from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.

Please see the posting at for a full description and instructions on how to apply. The position is open until filled. Evaluation of applications begins 9/11/23 and preference will be given to candidates who can start soon.

Please contact Josh Lawler ( or Julie Heinrichs ( with any questions.
