We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral research associate to work on drought and the implications for fish. The overall goal of the project is to link hydrologic and fisheries data to understand the ecological effects of drought. The postdoctoral associate will continue development of techniques using spatial and temporal data to define water availability in streams, and link those findings to ecologically relevant metrics (e.g. fish occupancy, growth, and movement). The position will involve a combination of modeling (hydrology and fisheries) and fieldwork.

Postdoctoral Fellow position available in invasion ecology with Drs. Hugh MacIsaac and Sarah Bailey. We seek candidates for a position to address risk assessment associated with colonization pressure in aquatic invasion ecology. The successful applicant will review pertinent literature, assess risk associated with mock zooplankton communities in experimental mesocosms, and model relative risk associated with colonization pressure and propagule pressure in ballast water communities. Appointment is initially available for one year, with renewal contingent on funding.
Application Deadline: December 15, 2019. Start date: February 2020.
