Post-doctoral Fellowship

Land-freshwater-ocean interactions on the British Columbia Central Coast


We seek a motivated post-doctoral fellow to join a multi-disciplinary effort
examining the source and fate of freshwater constituents in a bog
forest-coastal ocean system on the British Columbia Central Coast. The
successful candidate will explore processes occurring at the soil-freshwater
and freshwater-ocean interfaces, and will work with others on the team to
quantify the impact of freshwater constituents flowing to the coastal ocean.
The research will have a particular focus on the cycling and flux of carbon
and nutrients, and the post-doctoral fellow will both help to shape future
data collection efforts on this project, and work to analyze data that is
currently being accumulated.


The position will be based in the lab of Dr. Suzanne Tank at York
University, in Toronto, Canada. The successful candidate will be expected to
split their time between York, The Hakai Network for Coastal People,
Ecosystems, and Management at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, British
Columbia;  <http://www.sfu.ca/hakai.html> http://www.sfu.ca/hakai.html) and
the Hakai Beach Institute on Calvert Island ( <http://hakai.org/>



Applicants must hold a Ph.D. with specialization in aquatic biogeochemistry,
aquatic ecology, or a related field. Ideal qualities include experience with
field work and the laboratory analyses of aquatic constituents, a history of
engagement in collaborative research efforts, strong organizational skills,
excellent communication skills, and demonstrated success in producing
peer-reviewed scientific publications. The post-doctoral fellow will be
expected to work closely and successfully with a wide range of expert
collaborators from across multiple disciplines, and to contribute to
scientific syntheses and communication efforts that are beyond their primary
field of expertise. 


The research network:

This research is part of an innovative, highly interdisciplinary research
network supported by the Tula Foundation via its Hakai Beach Institute on
the British Columbia Central Coast.  The successful candidate for this
position will work closely with Drs. Suzanne Tank (York University), Ken
Lertzman (Simon Fraser University), Brian Hunt (University of British
Columbia), and David D'Amore (US Forest Service) and Ian Giesbrecht (Hakai
Beach Institute).


Time commitment and salary:

The post-doctoral appointment will be for two years, potentially renewable
for an additional year based on performance and funding. Salary is
negotiable based on experience, ranging from $CDN 42,000 to 55,000,
including benefits. The position also comes with a $10,000 per annum
research stipend. We will begin reviewing applications on August 26, and
will consider applicants until the position is filled. The start date for
the position will be between November 2013 and January 2014. Applications
should include a two-page statement of research interests and
accomplishments as they relate to the position, a full CV, and the names and
contact information for three references.


Applications should be sent via email to:
