Expiration Date: Thu, 2011-08-25
Organization: University of Michigan

Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available at the University of Michigan. These positions are for ecosystem modelers to develop and test dynamic and stochastic modeling approaches that address issues of climate, land-use change, and invasive species impacts on coastal marine and Great Lakes ecosystems. We are interested in developing, testing, and applying both aquatic ecosystem and watershed dynamics models. The primary focus is on analysis and prediction of nutrient dynamics and symptoms of eutrophication; however, a broad range of interests and postdoc-initiated projects are welcome.

The lab’s current geographic focus areas include the northern Gulf of Mexico, the Chesapeake Bay, and the Great Lakes; however we are also developing more general screening models for estuarine eutrophication. Our current efforts involve both Bayesian and deterministic modeling, so the applicant should show experience in one or both of these areas, or at least demonstrated training and experience to move quickly in one of these directions.

Salary is $45,000 per year, plus a generous benefits package. These are 24-month positions expected to begin as soon as possible. To apply, send a letter that addresses your interests and experiences in the above areas, digital copies of relevant publications, a curriculum vitae, transcripts or list of courses taken with grades, and names and contact information for at least two references to Don Scavia at
