Postdoctoral Position Involving Geo-Ecological Modeling****

A multi-investigator team comprised of faculty from the Biological Sciences
and Geography Departments at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, is
seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator for a two (2) year project on
geo-ecological modeling of rivers. Applicants should have a Ph.D. focused
in Physical Geography, Environmental Science, or Ecology. The ideal
candidate will have well-developed skills in GIS modeling with a background
in either fluvial geomorphology, river ecology, or biogeochemistry.
Competitive candidates should have a strong publication record and a desire
to work in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. Time
will be spent working both with researchers in Tuscaloosa and at Dauphin
Island Sea Lab (http://www.disl.org/). This is a non-tenure track position
on a 12-month appointment and renewable based on availability, funding, and

The overarching goal of this research project is to use GIS-based spatial
modeling to identify fluvial geomorphic features in rivers of the Eastern
U.S. that may be creating ecological hotspots of nutrient retention. Focus
will be on broad-scale transitions in channel morphology and habitat
structure in large rivers crossing from one physiographic province into
another. In addition to modeling efforts associated with this project,
applicants should have a strong interest in learning to utilize membrane
inlet mass spectrometry to measure microbial activity.****
