Department of Natural Resources and the Environment
Water Quality Analysis Lab
A position is available in ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry, with funding availability of two years minimum. This position will primarily focus on using long-term data records and high-frequency in situ sensor data to assess carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry and stoichiometry in a temperate, multi-use landscape (Lamprey River Hydrologic Observatory and White Mountains, New Hampshire) and in a tropical rain forest landscape (Luquillo Mountains, Puerto Rico). Available aquatic sensor data includes 15-minute records of nitrate, FDOM, turbidity, and conductance and discharge for 5 years from New Hampshire sites and for 2 years from sites in Puerto Rico (see example publications: Koenig et al. 2017, Contosta et al. 2017, Snyder et al. 2018, Wymore et al. 2018). Complementary data also exist in the form of regional climatic data (both historical and future projections), soil moisture and temperature sensors, eddy-flux data, and remotely sensed imagery. Opportunities also exist for off campus work and to develop novel field-based experimental work.
We seek candidates with a broad skill set who have a proven capacity to work collaboratively in a leadership position, interact with graduate students and staff, and publish papers. We are particularly interested in candidates who have some experience in computer programming, data integration and machine learning. Candidates are asked to submit vitae, a statement of research experience and interests (2 page max), and names and email contacts of three references to both William H. McDowell (email@example.com) and Adam Wymore (firstname.lastname@example.org). Starting date is negotiable but looking for candidates to begin no later than 1 October 2019.
If attending the 2019 Society for Freshwater Science meeting and wish to learn more, please contact Adam Wymore (email@example.com) to set up a brief meeting.
