Biocomplexity research seeks to identify and understand the relations
that emerge among living things and their physical, chemical, and
human environment.  A team of faculty at Cornell University, Syracuse
University, and the State University of New York College of
Environmental Science and Forestry are investigating the physical,
biological, and human interactions shaping the ecosystems of
freshwater bays and lagoons along Lake Ontario. Our main hypothesis
is that the pattern of water movement through an aquatic system is a
key property defining the extent that ecosystems are self-organized
or dominated by outside influences. To support this research, we seek
two new researcher staff to join an interactive student-faculty team
for highly quantitative field and modeling activities. Finally, this
basic ecosystem research will have relevance to large scale
management of water in the Great Lakes basin, and the project has
established links to prominent agencies and institutions shaping
Great Lakes environmental policies.


Position is to provide study team coordination and support staff
leadership for interdisciplinary research spanning hydrology,
hydrodynamics, ecology, mathematics, botany, regional socioeconomics,
and chemistry. Responsible for the development, scheduling, and
documentation of research activities of faculty, students, and staff
in different disciplines  and departments.   Must apply research
experiences and expertise to execute recommended environmental
measurement techniques, biological sampling  methods, digital data
assembly protocols, and computer analyses.   Will need to manage
undergraduate interns, temporary technicians, and research assistants
to form field study groups for specialized data collection and
sampling. Documenting research procedures, analysis results, and
study progress on a routine basis is needed.  Developing and
presenting scientific reports with faculty, student researchers, and
individually at professional societies and in publications is
desired.  Required: BS/MS in fields spanning some combination of the
involved disciplines.  Position requires 3 to 5 years experience
executing or managing an interdisciplinary, quantitative, field
oriented aquatic ecosystem research.


Position is to provide provide both specialized programming and
diversified team computing support spanning hydrology, hydrodynamics,
ecology, mathematics, botany, regional socioeconomics, and chemistry.
Responsible for developing and maintaining project data sets, web
site, GIS needs, digital graphics, and a project computer network.
Must apply programming experiences and education to develop, design,
modify, and maintain software for a moderately complex application
that provides system simulation and spatial analyses with multiple
components of other software.  Will need to manage undergraduate
interns and temporary assistants for some data processing tasks.
Should lead study team decisions regarding computing and database
policies and procedures, information management, and data set
development activities.  Required: BS/MS in a scientific or
engineering field with a strong computing or modeling orientation.
Position requires 3 to 5 years experience programming and managing
computing systems, software, or quantitative research.  Experience
with water or aquatic ecosystems preferred.
