Job alert: Postdoctoral opportunity: Pollinator behavior/floral rewards
03.06.2013

Postdoctoral opportunity studying bumblebee learning and pollen foraging behavior with Anne Leonard (University of Nevada, Reno), Daniel Papaj (University of Arizona) and Stephen Buchmann (University of Arizona). The position will be part of NSF-funded project focusing on the ecology and evolution of nutritionally complex floral rewards. Bumblebees will be used to test hypotheses relating to the cognitive ecology of nectar vs. pollen-based reward systems. The research will involve use of both pollen-rewarding plant species and floral surrogates to determine how bees learn associations involving different kinds of rewards, and how reward diversity itself affects plant fitness.

START DATE: As early as July 15, but negotiable.
