We are seeking an enthusiastic and creative Ph.D. with expertise in limnology with a degree in ecology, biology, environmental science or a related field. The successful applicant will collaborate with graduate students, faculty, and technicians in the research group to address questions regarding nutrient loading, harmful algal blooms, and carbon cycling in lakes. The research agenda is flexible, but could include analysis of water quality trends in lakes and reservoirs, restored lake nutrient cycling and food web structure, or the prediction and ecological impacts of harmful algal blooms. The postdoc will also assist with the oversight and data analysis for an intensive water quality monitoring program for Iowa lakes in partnership with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Ideal candidates should have experience with limnological sampling, in situ sensors and database management. Strong communication, writing and programming skills are highly desirable. Funding is available for one year, with up to two additional years contingent upon satisfactory research progress. Please submit a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references as a single PDF via email to Dr. Grace Wilkinson ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). Questions about the position should also be directed to Dr. Wilkinson. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
