The Department of Fisheries Wildlife and Conservation Biology
at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities seeks a postdoctoral associate to
begin 2014.


This individual will join a large, dynamic, and
interdisciplinary team from across the U.S. that is funded by NSF Frontiers in
Earth-System Dynamics grant 1135427 (
This team is conducting field work and developing quantitative models to
predict how physical, chemical and biological processes interact to affect the
dynamics of coastal river deltas. The individual will couple an existing
spatially-explicit, individual-based fish food web model to a larger model that
describes sediment and vegetation dynamics on an evolving river delta. The individual
will then use this model to i) predict how fish productivity is distributed in
both space and time, ii) develop indices of habitat suitability that predict
species presence or abundance, and iii) identify restoration scenarios (e.g.,
sediment mixture, discharge pattern) that optimize fish productivity. Other
research avenues are possible provided that they fit in with the overall
objective of the project, which is to predict river delta dynamics over
engineering to geologic time-scales, and to address questions of system
dynamics, resiliency, and sustainability.
This individual will be based in Paul Venturelliís lab in the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, and will collaborate with Doug Edmonds, Department of Geological Sciences at Indiana University Bloomington ( Start date is negotiable but ideally would be in the first quarter of 2014.

The review of applications begins 20 December. For complete
