The Post Lab at Yale University (https://postlab.yale.edu/) and the Subalusky Lab at University of Florida (https://asubalusky.wordpress.com/) are seeking a postdoctoral associate to study aquatic secondary production in response to wildlife subsidies in the Mara River, Kenya. The successful candidate will combine comparative and experimental methods to test predictions that the magnitude of resource subsidies influences trophic structure and function.
We are seeking a student to pursue a PhD in ecology in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying the ecology of Lake Myvatn, Iceland. Our project involves aquatic research with a strong quantitative component. We are seeking a PhD student with interests that intersect any of the ongoing research areas in the project, including food web ecology, ecosystem function, limnology, biogeochemistry, and population dynamics. A MS degree is not a pre-requisite.
The University of Florida Water Institute Graduate Fellows Program (WIGF) is offering 5 to 6 PhD fellowships for interdisciplinary collaborative studies in hydrology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, microbial ecology, botany, ecosystem ecology, and coastal hydrodynamics of glaciers, pro-glacial landscapes, and coastal systems in Greenland. Fellows will form a cohort and will benefit from integrative activities to enhance interdisciplinary skills as well as expertise in environmental civics (i.e. leadership, outreach and civic engagement skills).
The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa invites applications for a full-time (9-month) tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Ecohydrology.
