Postdoc Opportunity at University of Illinois

Description

We are seeking a highly motivated post doctoral research associate for the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES) at the University of Illinois. The associate will participate in a large, long-term research program quantifying the impacts of elevated aquatic carbon dioxide on aquatic organisms.

The current opportunity is for a 3-year project that will quantify the movement, behavior, and spatial ecology of freshwater fishes following exposure to elevated aquatic carbon dioxide. Work will consist of both laboratory simulation experiments, as well as large-scale field studies with fishes in experimental ponds. Work will be conducted in collaboration with a number of federal partners including researchers from the US Army Corps of Engineers, as well as the US Geological Survey. Results will have implications for future climate change scenarios, and will also inform policy on the potential to use carbon dioxide as a fish repellant.

Qualifications

Applicants should have PhD degree in biology, ecology, fisheries, animal biology or other related discipline. Preferred applicants will have a strong publication record, a documented history of research productivity and the ability to work independently. Experience with fish telemetry, quantification of animal movement, or working with large telemetry datasets would be an asset. Start date will be June/July 2015 (actual start date will be flexible).

If interested, please send CV, statement of interest, and contact information for three references by email to Dr. Cory Suski ([email protected]) by April 1, 2015.
