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.
