The University of Canberra is currently seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in
Freshwater Ecology (Modelling).  Details of the appointment are below
and further information can be obtained by contacting me or viewing the
advertisement on the University web site.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Freshwater Ecology (Modelling)

Institute for Applied Ecology, University of Canberra

Salary: $80,217 + 17% superannuation.  15-18 month appointment

The University of Canberra is seeking a dynamic, innovative person to
conduct research into water quality and ecological responses to climate
change in freshwater systems. The appointee will be required to develop
Bayesian network models to link projected water quality and quantity
changes with ecosystem changes with a particular focus on the
probability of adverse biological effects. 

The Bayesian network models will capture our existing knowledge of the
relationships between environmental conditions and ecological response.
The knowledge used to construct the Bayesian network will come from a
combination of local studies, expert opinion, strategically collected
data and published studies.  The Bayesian network models will be used to
inform adaptation initiatives for water security and the conservation of
biodiversity. Copies of the relevant research proposal leading to the
funding of this project are available on request.

The appointee will work within an interdisciplinary team of highly
motivated academics, postdoctoral fellows and lab technician in a very
friendly working environment. 

Closing date for this position is 9 October 2011.
