Postdoctoral Researcher in Urban Ecology - Chicago Botanic Garden

We seek to hire a postdoctoral researcher to work at the Chicago Botanic Garden in partnership with the Nature Conservancy to harvest and map open-sourced community science data submitted through Budburst and iNaturalist applications in Cook and Lake Counties (IL), as well as existing collections data from local herbaria and animal collections. This project has two major goals: determining how the ecological community context (e.g. proximity to natural areas or open space, land management, percent tree cover, etc.); and the human community context (particularly socio-economic differences, historically red-lined communities, etc.) affect patterns of plant and animal biodiversity and participation in community science related to biodiversity mapping.
