Lab technician position in population and community ecology

The Louthan lab at Kansas State University is recruiting a full time research technician beginning as soon as January 2020. Our lab works at the intersection of population and community ecology, focusing on how species interactions and climate change jointly influence population dynamics and distribution patterns. We use a combination of observational fieldwork, field- and greenhouse- based experiments, and modeling to explore how species interactions might impact future biodiversity patterns in a changing climate.

The successful applicant will have field experience and experience handling and/or analyzing data. Experience in population modeling is desired but not necessary. A fair amount of her or his duties will include assisting in lab setup and maintenance tasks (ordering equipment, processing samples, data cleanup and analysis), but substantial time will be devoted to field work at Konza Prairie Long-Term Ecological Research site ( and other locations.
