The Living Data Project at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is inviting application for a postdoctoral teaching and research fellow.

About the project:

The Living Data Project is a national initiative, led by the Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution (CIEE), to:

  • preserve – using best practices in digital archiving and data management – legacy datasets in ecology, evolution and environmental science;
  • synthesize scientific data and concepts using collaborative team approaches; and
  • provide training for graduate students and other early career researchers in data management, reproducible research, synthesis statistics and scientific collaboration.
  • The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for training and mentorship of graduate students involved in Living Data Project courses, including students from UBC and other CIEE member universities.
  • The postdoctoral fellow will also assist in the organization of data rescue internships with academic and non-academic researchers, and organize, in collaboration with similar postdoctoral fellows located at other Canadian universities, multi-institutional training events such as workshops and working groups.
  • The postdoctoral fellow will also develop and pursue research compatible with the goals of the Living Data Project, including through the working groups, self-directed synthesis science and other collaborations with Living Data Project members.


  • Applicant must be highly qualified individual with a PhD in any area of ecology, evolution or environmental science who has demonstrated exceptional skills in data management, statistical analysis, and scientific collaboration.
  • Priority will be given to candidates who have proficiencies in at least some of the following skills: data archiving, R programming, version control (e.g. GitHub), reproducible research, database construction, collation of large databases from multiple sources, citizen science, advanced statistics (e.g. hierarchical modelling, structural equation models, meta-analysis), and collaborating in working groups.
  • Candidates should also have: excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills; fluency in spoken and written English; and a strong personal commitment to research and teaching.
  • French language skills are also an asset.


Applications to be submitted to Dr. Diane Srivastava, Director CIEE electronically to with a copy to including CV, statement of relevant experience and training, and the names and contact information (including phone and e-mail) of up to three references.
