Subject: seeking a postdoc for a lake biogeochemistry study

Dear colleagues,

Emily Stanley and I are seeking a postdoc to continue work on a lake
biogeochemistry study.  Please circulate this information.

Post-doctoral research to assess effects of environmental change on
lake chemistry

With The University of Wisconsin - Madison and the USDA Forest Service
Northern Research Station

We are seeking applications for a post-doctoral research associate.
The project is a joint effort between the University of Wisconsin -
Madison and the Northern Research Station of the USDA Forest Service.
The research will focus on: 1) assessing decadal-scale baseline shifts
in lake chemistry in northern Wisconsin, and 2) mechanistic
experiments to discern effects of changing atmospheric deposition and
climatic variability on lake chemistry.

Responsibilities include:

·   Establishment of a productive collaboration with researchers at
the Center for Limnlogy on the University of Wisconsin campus in
Madison, WI (advisor Dr. Emily Stanley); at the Forest Service office
and laboratory in Grand Rapids, Minnesota (advisors Dr. Stephen
Sebestyen and Dr. Randy Kolka); and at the North Temperate Lakes Long
Term Ecological Research site in Boulder Junction, WI as well as with
resource managers on the Chequamegon-Nicolet and nearby National

·   Participation in field sampling campaigns for a series of study
lakes, completing laboratory analyses on water chemistry samples for
major solutes, and data processing.

·   Designing and conducting studies focused on mechanisms affecting
spatial and temporal variation in lake water chemistry

·   Leading the preparation of publications for peer-reviewed
scientific literature.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in limnology, hydrology, biogeochemistry,
geochemistry, ecology, or related fields prior to appointment and
experience with field work in aquatic environments.
Experience/interest in use of large data sets is desirable. This
duration is envisioned to be two years. Salary includes standard
benefits of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The position closes
September 1st and could begin as early as October13th.

For more information on the position contact both Dr. Stephen
Sebestyen (ssebestyen at fs.fed.us) and Dr. Emily Stanley
(ehstanley at wisc.edu).

 Please send letter of application, curriculum vitae, and names of 3
references (with telephone numbers and email addresses) to:
