The Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology at Colorado State University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position to investigate responses of aquatic communities to restoration treatments in Rocky Mountain streams. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in the biological sciences or related discipline with training in aquatic ecology and/or ecotoxicology. We seek applicants with broad experience in stream hydrology, aquatic entomology, and biostatistics. Strong quantitative and communication skills are essential for this position.

The successful applicant will participate in an interdisciplinary study and develop peer-reviewed publications quantifying responses of aquatic communities to large-scale restoration treatments in the Arkansas River (Colorado). Data for this research were collected before and after habitat manipulations and include routine water quality, trace metal concentrations, macroinvertebrate community composition, brown trout population density, composition of riparian vegetation, instream habitat, and stream discharge. Compensation will include an annual salary of $57,600 per year plus fringe benefits.

This position is available immediately (closing date: 1 September, 2019), but the search will be extended until a suitable candidate is found. Please email a resume including a brief summary of research experience and the names, addresses, and phone numbers of three references to:
