Subject: Post-doc in biogeomorphic modelling at Duke

The Heffernan Lab is seeking a post-doctoral scholar to help understand the=
 formation and distribution of depressional wetlands in karst landscapes, u=
sing  Big Cypress National Preserve<http://heffernanlab.weebly.com/florida-=
everglades.html> in south Florida as a case study.  To read more about the =
Big Cypress Landscape, see Cohen et al. 2011<http://www.tandfonline.com/doi=
/abs/10.1080/10643389.2010.531224> and Watts et al. 2014<http://onlinelibra=
ry.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/esp.3597/abstract>. In collaboration with PIs Jim =
Heffernan and Brad Murray, the post-doctoral scholar will lead development =
of spatially-explicit models of interactions among hydrologic, ecological, =
geochemical, and geomorphic processes that are hypothesized to create the d=
istinctive, regular patterning of cypress dome wetlands and other karst fea=
tures.  The successful applicant will have a degree in the earth or ecologi=
cal  sciences; experience with the development of spatially-explicit models=
; and demonstrated success in scholarly publication.  Previous experience i=
n collaborative projects at the interface of ecological and earth sciences,=
 and with research in karst landscapes, is preferred.  Preferred start date=
 is May 2015, but can be flexible depending on the successful candidate's s=
chedule.  Review of applications will begin October 15th and will continue =
until the position is filled.  This 2-year position is part of a newly fund=
ed NSF project in collaboration with the University of Florida. Submit appl=
ications, and direct inquiries, to james.heffernan at duke.edu<mailto:james.he=
ffernan at duke.edu>.
