Post-doctoral Position - Modelling Karst Landscape Pattern
The Heffernan Lab is seeking a post-doctoral scholar to help understand the formation and distribution of depressional wetlands in karst landscapes, using Big Cypress National Preserve in south Florida as a case study. To read more about the Big Cypress Landscape, see Cohen et al. 2011 and Watts et al. 2014. In collaboration with PIs Jim Heffernan and Brad Murray, the post-doctoral scholar will lead development of spatially-explicit models of interactions among hydrologic, ecological, geochemical, and geomorphic processes that are hypothesized to create the distinctive, regular patterning of cypress dome wetlands and other karst features. The successful applicant will have a degree in the earth or environmental sciences;experience with the development of spatially-explicit models; and demonstrated success in scholarly publication. Previous experience in collaborative projects at the interface of ecological and earth sciences, and with research in karst landscapes, is preferred. Preferred start date is May 2015, but can be flexible depending on the successful candidate's schedule. Review of applications will begin October 15th. This position is part of a newly funded NSF project in collaboration with the University of Florida. Submit applications (letter of interest, CV, references, up to 3 reprints), and direct inquiries, to email@example.com.
