We are seeking an ecologist specializing in aquatic vertebrates, invertebrates and plants, as well as water resources whose research will combine a mix of observational, experimental and/or molecular approaches including advances in spatial and statistical modeling to address applied questions in aquatic ecology and impacts of agricultural land-use on aquatic ecosystems. We encourage applicants with expertise in the monitoring and management of populations, habitat use and animal movement, and those who integrate their work into the broader aquatic ecosystem context.
The primary responsibilities of this position will be the development of a productive, externally-funded, and nationally/internationally recognized research program, effective mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, and teaching within the Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture program. Teaching responsibilities may include undergraduate courses in aquatic and terrestrial ecology, ichthyology, limnology, management of aquatic ecosystems, etc. Graduate level courses consistent with the expertise of the candidate and with departmental and college needs may also be developed.
