The Environmental Laboratory’s Aquatic Ecology and Invasive Species Branch at the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg MS conducts research in aquatic biology and restoration ecology of large river systems and their associated floodplains.  Our research projects are focused on conservation of threatened and endangered species and the control and management of invasive species.  We evaluate biotic communities over broad spatiotemporal scales, and document benefits of ecosystem restoration.  Research is conducted nationwide, with opportunities for collaborations with academia and government agencies in the United States and abroad.  Our scientists represent a diverse suite of disciplines including fisheries biology, herpetology, malacology, and invertebrate ecology in freshwater and near-shore coastal environments.

The ERDC is one of the most diverse engineering and scientific research organizations in the world, providing high quality, responsive engineering and environmental research for the Army and Nation.  It is composed of seven laboratories and over 2,000 employees, which execute more than $1B per year in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Defense, and a variety of other sponsors.  The Environmental Laboratory’s 200+ scientists and engineers seek to “provide solutions to tomorrow’s environmental challenges” through a broad array of basic and applied research.  To obtain more information, please send a cover letter and curriculum vitae to: Dr. Timothy E.
