Peatland responses to centennial and millennial-scale changes in North Pacific hydroclimate- Miriam Jones

This study will examine centennial- to millennial-scale North Pacific hydroclimate variability over the late-glacial and Holocene from Alaskan peatlands using cellulose extraction from peatland plants. Hydroclimate analysis will be coupled with vegetation and carbon dynamics to better understand how peatlands respond to long-term climate variability.

Recreational Fishing as driver of overexploitation in inland waters- Doug Beard

Do fisheries managers know the impacts of improving recreational fishing technology on the populations of fish they manage? The role of gear innovations in recreational fisheries is understudied as a driver of overexploitation in inland waters. Examining technology advances will inform recreational managment.

Coregonine restoration in the Great Lakes- David Bunnell

The principals of conservation biology are waiting to be applied to restore native coregonines in the Great Lakes. Native fishes have suffered extinctions and extirpations owing to loss of habitat, interactions with invasive species, and overfishing, and now fishery managers are committed to their restoration.

Conservation Genomics to Reduce Climate Change Impacts- Toni Lyn Morelli

Northern New England is a fascinating landscape of conifers, unique wildlife, mountainous landscapes, and warming climates. Help us better understand whether red squirrel populations are responding to climate change and predict how that will impact the vulnerable boreal birds that they prey upon.

Models of high-dimensional environmental or ecological data- Brian Gray

An opportunity to work with models of multivariate environmental and ecological processes from either a mathematical/statistical or scientific focus. The former would focus on elaborating current methods for making inferences or predictions from multivariate data while the latter would focus on using those current methods to better understand multivariate environmental or ecological processes.

Invasive Species and Climate Change- Toni Lyn Morelli

The topic of how climate change will exacerbate the impacts of invasive species is at the cutting edge of conservation biology and applied ecology. We are looking for someone to work with a group of researchers and natural resource managers under the paradigm of translational ecology, producing publications and designing research that will improve conservation outcomes on the ground

Incorporating Citizen Science to improve Biodiversity Knowledge- Toni Lyn Morelli

We are inviting you to participate in an exciting project that brings together citizen science data from iNaturalist and other online platforms to improve currently static biodiversity databases. This project will ultimately identify invasive species, taxonomy changes, and potential climate migrants that will aid conservation efforts on public lands.

Fighting the Tide: Combating Coral Disease and Disappearance Within the Florida Reef Tract Using Models- Daniel Walsh

In an unprecedented large-scale mortality event, Florida has lost >90% of many coral species. This event is unusual due to its expansive spatial extent, the number of affected species (at least 21 scleractinian coral species), and severity of losses (> 95% for Dendrogyra cylindrus), effectively eliminating some species from the tract.

Evaluating best practices for genetic sampling of bear populations- Tabitha Graves

Work with quantitative spatial wildlife ecologists to identify best practices for sampling rare and threatened carnivores using cutting edge statistical techniques. The results will be useful for sampling carnivore populations across the world. You will be stationed in beautiful northwest Montana in Glacier National Park.

Ecosystem Services of Urban Stormwater Management- Kristina Hopkins

As urban development continues to expand, the ecosystem services provided by the urban landscape will be increasingly important to human well-being. Join our interdisciplinary team to help us quantify the water quality services provided by urban stormwater management practices such as rain gardens, infiltration trenches, and detention ponds.

Decoding the Microbiology of Contaminated Environments- Carrie Givens

Much of this research is centered on animal or human-associated pathogens, the antimicrobial resistance potential of those pathogens, and the influence of these pathogens on recreational water quality, drinking-water quality, and water quality in agricultural and urban watersheds.
