Subject: EPA Post-doc Assessing Anthropogenic Influences on Aquatic
EPA's National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) announced a
post-doc opportunity to work with a team of scientists assessing
anthropogenic influences on aquatic resources:
NCEA is responsible for scientific assessment activities related to the
potential risks of environmental activities and stressors and the potenti=
causes of biological degradation in aquatic systems. These activities
provide key scientific support for EPA policy and regulatory decisions.
Assessment activities are generally related to aquatic resources and
typically have significant implications for national and international
environmental policy development and implementation. NCEA develops logica=
credible ecological assessment documents that reflect current scientific
principles and risk and causal assessment methodologies. Participants wil=
have the opportunity to collaborate with EPA scientists on projects relev=
to assessing and managing anthropogenic impacts to water resources.
Activities may involve: =95Scoping and problem formulation including the
development of conceptual models and analysis plans to guide ecological
assessments related to the management of nutrients in aquatic ecosystems.=
=95Reviewing and analyzing field and laboratory research results to, deri=
integrate, and synthesize information.. =95Developing innovative methods =
synthesize literature results, such as weight of evidence approaches,
statistical methods and visualization techniques. There is the potential =
more than one selection to be made from this postdoctoral position
