Postdoctoral Scientist: Fish Ecology and Modeling

Postdoctoral Scientist: Fish Ecology and Modeling
Purdue University, Department of Forestry and Natural Resources
West Lafayette, IN, USA


We seek to hire a postdoctoral scientist to participate in a multi-institutional project exploring dynamics of the Saginaw Bay, Lake Huron ecosystem. Specifically, the incumbent will develop and apply various models (individual-based and spatially-explicit bioenergetics, statistical) to explore ecological responses of fishes and other biota to multiple ecosystem stressors (nutrient loading, climate change, invasive species) in Saginaw Bay.  The post doc will be expected to make use of existing physical/biological data, as well as output from both physical and lower trophic level models to evaluate potential effects of multiple stressors on fish populations and communities.  In addition, the incumbent will prepare manuscripts, present at national conferences, help mentor students (from undergraduate to PhD) and potentially develop parallel field and laboratory studies.

Selected individual will be employed by Purdue University. The position will be located in Purdue University's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources (
www.ag.purdue.edu/fnr < http://www.ag.purdue.edu/fnr

>) in West Lafayette, IN.  Incumbent will interact with a diversity of researchers from multiple institutions (NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory < http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/>, Univ. of Michigan's Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research < http://ciler.snre.umich.edu/ >, and Limno-Tech Inc. < http://www.limno.com/>).  Through such interactions, there may be opportunities to develop additional research projects consistent with the incumbent's interests.

Minimum qualifications include a PhD in Ecology, Fisheries Science, or related field. Strong quantitative and written skills are required. The ideal candidate will be highly creative and able to work effectively both independently and collaboratively.  Experience in developing bioenergetics, individual-based, and/or statistical models is strongly preferred.

How to Apply:
For full consideration, please submit cover letter, CV, and names and contact information for three references to Dr. Tomas Höök ( Е-мейл адресът e защитен от спам ботове. <mailto:thook Е-мейл адресът e защитен от спам ботове. >; 765-496-6799) by 15-Dec-2011.  Review of candidates will continue until the position is filled.
