Postdoc in Freshwater Ecology

We are seeking a postdoctoral associate for collaboration in freshwater research, with a general emphasis on highly quantitative approaches to understanding lake ecology, but with specific topics to be defined primarily by the successful candidate. A few areas of current interest include time series analysis of multivariate long-term data and under-ice ecology; some emerging areas of interest include coupling remote sensing and in situ sensor data with long-term monitoring or experimental data. However, we are open to considering many areas of inquiry for the postdoctoral researcher’s work.

A Ph.D. (A.B.D. candidates will be considered) and a record of peer-reviewed publication in an aquatic science field are required. Strong commitment to collaborative work is necessary, and experience working in large research collaborations is desired. Experience with programming in R is ideal, but those without this experience should feel free to contact us to determine their fit to this position.

The postdoc will be based at Washington State University working directly with Dr. Stephanie Hampton (http://environment.wsu.edu/people/faculty/hampton.html).  While there is flexibility in start date, we anticipate that the postdoc will be in residence at WSU-Pullman by June 2014, with the yearly appointment renewable up to three years. Please direct inquiries to s.hampton@wsu.edu. A complete application will include a Statement of Interest (1-page maximum) that outlines some of the areas of potential research, and a C.V. with the names and contact information for 3 professional references. Please send these materials to s.hampton@wsu.edu, with the Subject Header 'Freshwater Postdoc'.
