Stream and River Ecosystem Ecologist
Expiration Date: 5/15/2017
Stroud Water Research Center is searching for a stream and river ecosystem ecologist to be hired at the assistant or associate research scientist rank, with expertise in systems approaches to understanding biological, chemical, and hydrodynamic processes in streams, rivers, and their watersheds. The individual will establish a permanent stream and river ecosystem science and modeling research program that is focused on understanding dynamics of water, nutrients, energy, and pollutants in stream ecosystems. The preferred candidate will be a broad thinker and have expertise and demonstrated use in applying mathematical modeling approaches to answer questions that advance knowledge and theory of freshwater systems ecology.
We prefer candidates who have at least one year postdoctoral research experience and a Ph.D. relating to any of the core disciplines of ecology, environmental chemistry/biogeochemistry, biology, hydrology, or environmental engineering. The ideal candidate should (1) have core competencies in stream ecology, biogeochemistry, physical environmental sciences (e.g., hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, hydrodynamics), and/or mathematical modeling; (2) possess a strong basic and theoretical understanding of ecosystem ecology and freshwater science and be able to integrate bio-, geo-, and hydrological sciences; (3) possess a strong publication record; (4) be able to secure external funding for research in their primary discipline; (5) have a proven ability to work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team; (6) be knowledgeable about the emerging technologies within their discipline.
EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENTS AND PROCESS
Application deadline is 15 May, 2017 in anticipation of starting the position in late 2017 or early 2018. Apply by sending cover letter, curriculum vitae/resume, statement of research interests and goals, and the names and addresses of three potential references to firstname.lastname@example.org as a SINGLE ATTACHMENT to the email (do not send multiple attachments). Email applications MUST include “STREAM ECOSYSTEM ECOLOGIST” in the email subject line. The name of the attached file should start with the applicant’s last name in the file name (e.g., LASTNAME_RESUME.PDF). Review of applications will begin on 20 May, 2017. Finalists will be interviewed in person or by video conference.
