Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina
Save Print Apply
Date Posted April 25, 2019

Employment Type Full-time
Application Deadline Open until filled

Clemson University Biological Sciences is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work broadly within the fields of biodiversity, ecomorphology and macroevolution. The precise project is flexible, with opportunities to develop independent research working on a variety of questions and systems.

Research in the Price lab ( utilizes phylogenetic comparative approaches to address macroevolutionary questions, with the aim of identifying repeating themes and general principles governing the evolution of vertebrate diversity. We study living and sometimes fossil animals and use data and techniques from across evolutionary and organismal biology and data science.

Additional consideration will be given to researchers interested in working with a large database (over 16,000 specimens) of teleost fish body morphology generated as part of a collaborative project with the Wainwright lab at UC Davis. 

The postdoc will be expected to assist in data collection and analysis and to consistently write and publish scientific papers, as well as help mentor undergraduate and graduate researchers. Clemson University has a diverse group of researchers across life sciences and collaboration with other labs is encouraged, we also have access to the Palmetto High Performance Computing cluster on campus. It is a one-year appointment renewable for one or more additional years conditional upon performance. Applicants should have completed a Ph.D. or expect to do so prior to starting in the position.

Starting date summer 2019, precise date negotiable.

A successful applicant will have:

  • A doctoral degree in a relevant subject (biological sciences or related)

  • At least 4 years experience conducting scientific research at the graduate level or above

  • A solid track record of scientific publications and international conference presentations commensurate with career stage and experience.

  • One or more of the following macroevolutionary skill sets: phylogenetic comparative analyses, functional morphology or ecomorphology, phylogenetics, palaeobiology, vertebrate diversity and natural history.

Review of applications will begin May 25, 2019 and the position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates should provide: (1) an application letter summarizing research interests, goals and qualifications (2) a CV and (3) contact information for at least two references. For questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Samantha Price at
