The Wetland Ecosystems Research Lab at FIU's Southeast Environmental Research Center has an excellent opportunity for a young professional to conduct field research and laboratory activities in Everglades National Park and Water Conservation Areas of South Florida. The Wetland Ecosystems Research Lab is looking for an individual to help with all aspects of research in mangrove, freshwater marsh and tree island ecosystems. See here for more info.
Audubon of Florida’s Everglades Science Center is seeking to fill a full time position monitoring prey base fish populations in the mangrove zone of Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, and the Florida Keys. Scientific responsibilities include collection and analysis of fishes, physical data, and maintaining a data base. Fish populations are monitored using a 9M2 drop system, throw traps, and seines. Field data will be collected from, powerboats, row boats, canoes and kayaks.
The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the US. Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering. These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. See here for more information.
The Simons Foundation invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology. The foundation is particularly interested in applicants with training in different fields who want to apply their experience to understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes and vice versa, as well as applicants with experience in modeling or theory development.
The CREST CAChE undergraduate research fellows program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain first-hand research experience working with faculty and graduate students associated with the CAChE project. In addition, CAChE Fellows will be enrolled in the CREST Research Internship (for zero credit at no cost) so they can list their research experience on their resume. Fellows can perform research during the academic year or during the summer session. See here for more info!
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, Maryland seeks proposals from highly qualified graduate students interested in conducting team-based socio-environmental synthesis research (i.e. “Graduate Pursuits"). Socio-environmental synthesis focuses on understanding connections between social and biophysical systems and emphasizes the importance of understanding them from a systems perspective. Applications are due May 26, 2017. More information can be found here!
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the effects of stream restoration on removal of nutrients and suspended sediments from stream water. The restoration approach, Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC), involves filling deeply eroded stream channels with a mixture of sand and organic matter and placing rock weirs across the stream channel at intervals to create a series of pools. More information here.
REU Experience for Undergraduates with the Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Netw
The Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network (UREx SRN) is pleased to announce six opportunities for undergraduate students to participate this summer in interdisciplinary research associated with urban infrastructure resilience and community vulnerability in the face of extreme weather-related events. UREx SRN aims to generate knowledge and promote actions that will ensure urban resiliency. See here for more information.
The Coastal Wetlands Group explores how interactions between biological, anthropogenic, and geomorphic processes influence the formation and survival of coastal landscapes. The desired field manager will coordinate field, lab, and/or modeling efforts, and also work on their own independent research. Depending on the applicant’s background, this could be either a field intensive or a modeling intensive position. More info here.
This program is designed to support research, education/outreach, and/or conservation projects related to the Florida Coral Reef ecosystem. The primary focus will be on restoration projects that significantly enhance capabilities of coral reef ecosystem resource managers, to more effectively utilize science-based information in promoting/implementing the restoration and long-term sustainability of these ecosystems in an increasingly-acidic and high-temperature marine environment.
