> Postdoctoral Research Opportunity
> Watershed Biogeochemistry Modeling
> Michigan State University
>               We seek a postdoctoral associate to lead data analysis and
> modelling efforts for ongoing watershed biogeochemistry and hydrology
> projects in the Watershed Science & Hydroecology Lab at Michigan State
> University. The postdoc will lead efforts to model and predict Carbon and
> solute flux patterns across watersheds using large extant data sets and
novel high-frequency stream sensor systems. The postdoc will ultimately
apply their models to evaluate regional and global change impacts on
aquatic ecosystems and water resources. The lab represents a rapidly
growing multidisciplinary team examining the influence of changes in
climate and land use on
water resources and watershed nutrient and pathogen transport. Michigan
State University represents a large and vibrant community for water
>               The position requires a Ph.D. by the start date of
employment in ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, hydrology, environmental
engineering, ecoinformatics, or a related field. Preferred research skills
and interests include demonstrated knowledge of watershed carbon and
nitrogen biogeochemistry, geospatial analysis, machine learning,
statistical modeling, and
time series analysis. Strong computer programming skills (especially
MATLAB, Python, R and/or FORTRAN) are required. A strong record of
publications, GIS, and data-driven science is desired.

We will begin reviewing applications on 20 May 2016, and the search will
remain open until a suitable candidate is found. Start date is flexible in
2016, but preferably in summer 2016.

Position is funded for up to 2 years. For more information about our
