*Assistant Research Scientist in Estuarine Biogeochemical Modeling*
Location: University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science -
Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, Solomons, Maryland, USA
Salary: Competitive salary, benefits
End Date: Review of applications will begin immediately and continue
until a qualified candidate is identified.Anticipated start date is
May-July 2016, with flexibility.
Applications are invited for an Assistant Research Scientist (i.e., a
postdoctoral scholar) now available in the Ecosystem Studies Group at
the UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) in Solomons, Maryland
(http://www.umces.edu/cbl). This position will focus on developing and
implementing numerical models to support the understanding of estuarine
biogeochemical processes, including nutrient cycling, oxygen depletion,
and phytoplankton dynamics, as they respond to changes in external
inputs of freshwater, nutrients, and organic matter. This effort will
include the development of a model for carbonate chemistry to quantify
the interactions of fossil acidification and eutrophication in
Chesapeake Bay. We seek highly motivated applicants with demonstrated
problem-solving and quantitative skills.
This position will include participation in multiple large,
inter-disciplinary projects aimed at understanding the interactions of
multiple external drivers in driving short- and long-term changes in
estuarine biogeochemistry.Specifically, the successful applicant will
enhance an existing hydrodynamic-biogeochemical model in Chesapeake Bay.
Experience with FORTRAN and Matlab programming is essential and strong
writing and communication skills are recommended.//
Salary and benefits will depend on academic background and job
experience. Electronic applications (including a full CV, description of
past experiences, and names and addresses of three references) should be
