Postdoctoral position in Coastal Ecosystem Ecology and Landscape Change at
Florida International University Florida International University, Miami,
Florida One postdoctoral research associate position is available in the
Sea Level Solutions Center at Florida International University (FIU) (
https://slsc.fiu.edu) to conduct research in the Florida Everglades,
beginning immediately. FIU is a public research university in Miami with a
highly diverse, vibrant, and growing faculty and student body located near
the eastern boundary of the Everglades. This position is affiliated with
the Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program (
http://fcelter.fiu.edu/) and Southeast Environmental Research Center (

The candidate will:

   1. support field and outdoor laboratory experiments to test effects of
   salinity and inundation on coastal peat marshes,
   2. apply integrative field and experimental data to apply a mechanistic
   soil carbon dynamics model to represent responses to changes in salinity
   and hydrology, and
   3. collaborate with agency and academic scientists to apply an existing
   probabilistic model for coastal vegetation change at the landscape scale.

The selected candidate will join an existing collaborative team of graduate
students, FIU faculty, as well as scientists from the South Florida Water
Management District, Everglades National Park, and the Everglades
Foundation, with a shared goal of understanding and forecasting peat
collapse and carbon loss in coastal wetland ecosystems exposed to sea-level
rise and saltwater intrusion. A PhD in ecology or geosciences is required.
Field experience is required. Some experience developing ecological models
is required, preferably to include Stella®. Desired skills include
proficiency in computational modeling, R packages, or Python.

Interested applicants should visit the lab (http://wetland.fiu.edu),
affiliated program and center websites before applying. The position is
available for a one-year term with possibility for renewal based
satisfactory performance and available funding.

For priority consideration, please submit a short letter of interest and CV
by November 14, 2018 to Dr. Tiffany Troxler (troxlert at fiu.edu). Position
open until filled.
