Freshwater habitats play an important role in ecological function and biodiversity. Remote sensing of these ecosystems is primarily tied to observations of the drivers of biodiversity and ecosystem health. Remote sensing can be used to understand things like land use and land cover change in a watershed, habitat connectivity along a water body, water body location and extent, and water quality parameters. This webinar series will guide participants through using NASA Earth observations for habitat monitoring, specifically for freshwater fish and other species.

The Illinois Natural History Survey is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to assist with aquatic ecological research and to evaluate the impacts surrounding the impending Illinois River Waterway Lock Closure. The position duties will require a balance of field sampling, laboratory science, data analysis, and writing.
The Department of Biology at University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Biology and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Environmental Health Science degrees. Terui lab at UNCG (https://aterui0111.wordpress.com/) seeks to understand spatial processes that support biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems.
We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to investigate the responses of invertebrate metacommunities to seasonal and supra-seasonal drought in California streams, as part of the project StreamClimes - Scaling Climate, Connectivity, and Communities in Streams (NSF MSB-FRA # 1802714). The candidate will be responsible for deploying sensors and collecting invertebrate samples in intermittent streams in Pinnacles National Park, California; and for modeling hydro-ecological dynamics in stream networks based on existing data from the system.

The Pacfish Infish Biological Opinion (PIBO) Monitoring Program will soon begin filling multiple temporary seasonal positions in biology for the 2020 field season. Positions will be filled at the GS-3, 4, and 5 levels. These seasonal (not to exceed 1039 hours) positions will begin on May 11th. Student employees typically work to the first week of August while others will work to mid-September with extensions determined by availability of work and funding.
