Dear colleagues,

We seek a motivated post-doctoral fellow to join a multi-disciplinary
effort exploring the effects of recent, large scale fires on aquatic
ecosystems in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The research has a particular
focus on the land-to-water flux of carbon, nutrients, and toxins such as
metals and PAHs, the effect of these fluxes on aquatic ecosystem health,
and how inter-regional variation can be used to scale results to the
broader landscape. Work will occur in the Boreal Shield and Boreal Plains
regions of the NWT. The post-doctoral fellow will work collaboratively with
researchers from a variety of organizations, lead field data collection
efforts, analyze and disseminate collected data, and undertake some
laboratory analyses.

The position will be based in the laboratory of Dr. Suzanne Tank in the
Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta in Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada (www.biology.ualberta.ca). Work will occur in collaboration
with Drs. William Quinton (Wilfrid Laurier University), Chris Spence
(Environment Canada), David Olefeldt (University of Alberta) and Erin Kelly
(Government of the Northwest Territories). The University of Alberta is one
of Canada’s top five research institutions. Within the University, the
Department of Biological Sciences consists of 63 faculty, over 300 graduate
students, and numerous support staff and postdoctoral fellows, and offers
significant research support through facilities such as the Biogeochemical
Analytical Service Laboratory.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. with specialization in aquatic
biogeochemistry, hydrology, 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 collaborators from across multiple disciplines, and
organize field efforts in relatively remote locations.

The post-doctoral appointment will be for two years, potentially renewable
for an additional year based on performance and funding. The start date for
the position will be on or before January, 2016. *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.*
