Post Doctoral FellowPosted by: University of Arkanas
Posted date: Mar-12-2017
Location: Fayetteville, AR
The Post-Doctoral Fellow will work on a project examining flow-ecology relationships and environmental flows assessment for the Ozark-Ouachita Interior Highlands and West Gulf Coastal Plains. There are previously classified stream types within
Arkansas and the surrounding region based on hydrology and geomorphology. The current objective is to develop hydrology-ecological relationships within flow classes using data and other existing hydrologic and biological databases. Important
products of this work will be regional flow-ecology relationships that will form the scientific framework for setting environmental flow standards and understanding impacts of land use and climate change. These flow-ecology relationships will help determine environmental flow needs in the Ozark-Ouachita Interior Highlands and the West Gulf Coastal Plains and will provide the basis for conservation of numerous aquatic species. This project will involve extensive work with GIS and quantitative analysis to model flow-ecology relationships and may also involve field work in the Interior Highlands and lab experiments.
Applicants must have a PhD in ecology, fisheries, biology, or a related field conferred by the start of employment, demonstrated strong quantitative skills, and demonstrated knowledge of GIS (Geographic Information System). Previous
research experience with fish, invertebrates and/or streams is preferred.
