Post-Doctoral Research Associate – Contaminant Threats to Bats
School of Natural Resources (UTIA)

The UT School of Natural Resources invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to conduct research investigating the risks of contaminants to bats and how such risks might be considered in Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration (NRDAR) cases. Research will involve review of NRDAR cases in the context of bat exposure to contaminants; identification of the types of NRDAR cases likely to overlap with bat foraging ranges; development of a decision tree to aid practitioners in designing studies to consider aquatic-terrestrial dietary pathways in NRDAR risk assessments and restoration processes; and establishment of best practices for considering bats in NRDAR cases. The project is part of a collaboration with a team of researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Incumbent will be responsible for data collection, management, and analyses; reporting results, including periodic funder progress reports; presentations at professional meetings; and preparation of manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.



The successful candidate will possess well-developed quantitative abilities and competency in a variety of analytic techniques, strong oral and written communication skills, and experience in publishing within the scientific literature. They will be self-motivated and capable of working independently with a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and the ability to function effectively as part of a team.


This is an exempt, regular, full-benefits, 100% FTE, grant-funded position with funding secured for 24 months. Position is based at the UT Institute of Agriculture campus in Knoxville, Tennessee. This position offers a competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. The School of Natural Resources is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment to all.
