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 ( ) or ">Carol Adair ( ) 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.
