Postdoctoral researcher in freshwater science
19 May 2015
S.E. Hampton, Washington State University
We are seeking a postdoctoral associate for collaboration in freshwater research, with a
general emphasis on highly quantitative approaches to understanding lake ecology, but
with specific topics to be defined primarily by the successful candidate. A few areas of
current interest include time series analysis of multivariate long-term data and under-ice
ecology; some emerging areas of interest include coupling remote sensing and in situ
sensor data with long-term monitoring or experimental data. However, we are open to
considering many areas of inquiry for the postdoctoral researcher’s work.
A Ph.D. (A.B.D. candidates will be considered) and a record of peer-reviewed publication
in an aquatic science field are required. Strong commitment to collaborative work is
necessary, and experience working in large research collaborations is desired.
Experience with programming in R is ideal, but those without this experience should feel
free to contact us to determine their fit to this position.
The postdoc will be based at Washington State University working directly with Dr.
Stephanie Hampton (http://ift.tt/1JE9bNY). While there is flexibility in
start date, we anticipate that the postdoc will be in residence at WSU-Pullman by
September 2015, with the yearly appointment renewable up to three years. Please direct
inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. A complete application will include a Statement of
Interest (1-page maximum) that outlines some of the areas of potential research, and a
C.V. with the names and contact information for 3 professional references. Please use
the subject header “WSU postdoc 2015” in all email correspondence.
We will start reviewing applications on 8-June-2015 and the position will remain open
