Postdoctoral Position Involving Geo-Ecological Modeling

A multi-investigator team comprised of faculty from the Biological Scienc=
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=
Physical Geography, Environmental Science, or Ecology.  The ideal candida=
will have well-developed skills in GIS modeling with a background in eith=
fluvial geomorphology, river ecology, or biogeochemistry.  Competitive
candidates should have a strong publication record and a desire to work i=
n a
highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment.  Time will be spe=
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 performance=

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.  Foc=
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.=20=20
