Graduate and postdoc opportunities: biogeochemistry of bloom-affected lakes
The Global Water Futures FORMBLOOM (Forecasting Tools and Mitigation Options for Diverse Bloom-Affected Lakes) project seeks up to 3 graduate students (Masters and/or PhD) and one postdoctoral fellow to research the drivers of freshwater
cyanobacterial blooms and develop tools for bloom mitigation.
Students will require good quantitative capabilities and possess strong verbal and writing skills. A background in limnology, hydrology, genomics or geochemistry is welcomed. For field-oriented programs, students with a hearty appetite
for boat-based field work and experience with sensor-based instrumentation are particularly welcomed. The successful postdoctoral fellow must have a strong background in data analysis
using R, excellent data management skills, and a background in limnology, ideally in bloom ecology.
