Subject: Post-doc opportunity Estuarine Water quality

Mississippi State University in coordination with NOAA is seeking to fill a
postdoctoral research associate position in water quality dynamics and
statistical analyses starting immediately. The position will be advised
from Mississippi State University through the Department of Agricultural
and Biological Engineering but stationed (i.e. located) at the NOAA
Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory in Miami, Florida.

NOAA recently designated Biscayne Bay, Florida as one of ten national
habitat focus, based in large part on warning signs of eutrophication. This
designation states that NOAA will try to make significant habitat
improvements in Biscayne Bay within 3=E2=80=905 years. The first goal in th=
plan is to =E2=80=9Cby 2020, understand major sources of nutrients that
contribute significantly
to phytoplankton and algal blooms in Biscayne Bay and work with
resource managers
to enhance policies and management approaches for improving water quality.=
In response to this goal, this project will focus on data analysis and the
eventual development of a finite element water quality model for Biscayne

The minimum qualification for this position is a PhD in environmental
science, engineering, or related field. Preferred qualifications include
experience with nutrient and phytoplankton dynamics, water quality
modeling, computer coding, time series analysis, statistical software, and
data quality assurance and quality control. We are looking for an
independent and productive candidate with a proven track record in research
and publications. The position is dependent upon annual funding.

Interested candidates should send 1) cover letter, 2) CV, and 3) list of
three references to Anna Linhoss alinhoss at abe.msstate.edu.
