Great Lakes Research Investigator Program

School of Natural Resources & Environment

University of Michigan

The University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources & Environment, with NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory and the USGS Great Lakes Science Center, is seeking qualified candidates for two-year Joint Research Investigator positions the following areas. Renewal for second two-year appointments are possible provided satisfactory performance and proposal writing success.

Environmental Toxicologist Studies of the potential effects of cyanobacterial toxins on
human health and food-webs

Beach Bacterial Contamination Studies of interactions of hydro-meteorological and ambient conditions with indicator bacteria, such as E. coli or enterococciWatershed Hydrology Spatially explicit models for watershed and open lake forecasts of water and material (nutrients, sediment, pollutants, etc) movement

Statistical Modeling and Forecasting Use of large spatial and temporal databases for statistically forecasting Great Lakes conditions (e.g. algal blooms, beach closings, physical hazards, fish recruitment, water quality)

Fish thiamine deficiency Identification of trophic pathways associated with Thiamine Deficiency Complex in Great Lakes salmonids and characterization of fish diets using fatty acid profile analysis.

Ecological Toxicology Studies to model and assess impacts of toxicants at the individual, population, and ecological levels of the Great Lakes

Near-shore Coastal Hydrodynamics and Particle Transport Studies of how hydrodynamic processes in the near shore zone affect the transport of dissolved and suspended materials for the purpose of operational predictions of near shore water quality

Coastal Observation Apply real-time buoy-deployed chemical, biological, physical sensors and remote sensing to study and forecast Great Lakes environmental processes.

Fish Ecology Study the distribution, habitats, feeding ecology and bioenergetics of fishes in the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay using underwater acoustics and spatial bioenergetics modeling

For more information, including a full description of these areas of interest and individual contacts, visit www.ciler.snre.umich.edu. To apply, send CV and statement of research objectives by July 22, 2005 to Dr. Donald Scavia, 520 Dana, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-1115 or scavia@umich.edu.
