So, I normally try to keep work stuff and blog stuff separated, but I figured the four of you who read this might be or know of someone who might be interested in a one year (with possible extension) contract position with my research group at US EPA in Narragansett, RI. And besides, its my blog. I can do what I want.
Our group works on various aspects of Cyanobacteria including toxicology, epidemiology, economics, and ecology. The focus of the post-doc is to help build National scale models of the probability of cyanobacteria bloom events in lakes across the US. Candidates with backgrounds in limnology, aquatic ecology, landscape ecology, and statistics would all be very competitive. Experience with R, Python, Bayesian methods and/or machine learning a definite plus. More information is here.
Please be aware this position is a contract position so the announcement reads a bit different. Don’t let that dissuade you. We are a fun group!
