Vermont EPSCoR is recruiting a postdoctoral associate to join our cutting-edge NSF funded research on Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE).  We are continuing a five-year interdisciplinary research project, which studies Lake Champlain Basin landscape, watershed and lake condition responses to extreme weather events. Policy scenarios for enhancing resilience are tested using our comprehensive Integrated Assessment Model (IAM). As a member of the BREE team, the successful candidate will participate in unique learning and professional development experiences including science communication through our program with the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, grant writing through workshops, and undergraduate mentorship through our summer internship program.

 

Nutrient Biogeochemistry, Catchment Hydrology, and Limnology Postdoc

Position ID: PDA#001

We seek a field-oriented postdoctoral researcher with expertise in nutrient biogeochemistry (C, N, P, Fe), catchment hydrology, and/or limnology interested in studying how extreme events cascade through the soil-stream-lake continuum. Research will leverage a heavily instrumented suite of watersheds and lakes in Vermont. The candidate should possess expertise and/or interests related to the processing and transport of nutrients or pollutants across riparian soil corridor, river and in receiving water networks. Elements of interest include carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and iron in both particulate and dissolved forms.

Experience working with in-situ sensors as well as advanced statistical analyses requisite for interpretation of large environmental datasets are desirable. The successful candidate will be responsible for mentoring undergraduate and graduate students associated with this large cross disciplinary project, and will be expected to collaborate actively with a large group of natural and social scientists seeking to develop an integrated assessment model of the Lake Champlain Basin. This position is funded through May 31, 2021, with possibility of extension with exceptional performance.

Please contact Andrew Schroth (Andrew.Schroth@uvm.edu) or Carol Adair (Carol.Adair@uvm.edu) for more information.

A major goal of Vermont EPSCoR is workforce development, which means that the graduate students and postdocs will be mentored for success. The required start date is September 1, 2019. Applications will be considered until the position is filled. 

To apply:  please send CV, names and contact information for three references, and a cover letter outlining research interests, expertise and availability to epscor@uvm.edu and reference Position ID PDA#001.
