Job Announcement:


This is a 24-month post-doctoral researcher position with the possibility of extension, depending on funding availability. The post-doctoral researcher will help design and lead the implementation of a new applied research project designed to support The Nature Conservancy's efforts to advance nutrient reduction and water quality improvement in the Mississippi River Basin. This research will contribute to the development of a shared vision of the level of effort and investment required by TNC and public and private partners to meet Gulf of Mexico hypoxia and state nutrient reduction goals. Results of this work will inform implementation of conservation and agricultural best-management practices and help target activities to help ensure that practices are chosen and sited to achieve cost-effective improvements in water quality and other ecosystem services.

He/she must also be familiar with the state of the science related to addressing nutrients and water quality in agricultural watersheds and in particular efforts to address Gulf Hypoxia in the Mississippi River Basin.
