Posición Post-Doctoral "Hydropower and Ecosystem Services in the Andean Amazon"
(Vía A. Flecker)
"We are seeking candidates for a 1.5-yr postdoctoral position focused on tradeoffs involving hydropower expansion and ecosystem services in the Andean Amazon region of Peru and Ecuador. The postdoctoral position is funded through the Cornell Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future (http://www.acsf.cornell.edu/), for organizing working groups to develop a framework for evaluating potential cumulative impacts and tradeoffs of proposed hydropower projects on ecosystem services. The successful applicant will be based at Cornell University and will be part of an interdisciplinary team that includes river ecologists, hydrologists, water resource managers, environmental economists, and computer scientists from a diverse set of institutions and organizations. The postdoctoral associate will play a central role in the organization and integration of three working groups focused on:
1) characterization of hydrologically-based ecosystem services for the Andean Amazon region,
2) hydrological modeling of potential impacts of proposed hydropower projects, and
3) computational sustainability modeling of tradeoffs between hydropower generation and viable portfolios of ecosystem services.
We are looking for a postdoctoral associate who can start in Fall 2016. A Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required, with expertise in water resources, river ecology, ecosystem services, or hydrological modeling. The successful applicant should have experience working in Latin America and be able to communicate effectively in Spanish. The ability to work with teams and across disciplines is essential. Consideration of applications begins September 1, and will continue until the position is filled.
To apply, please send by email a cover letter stating your research accomplishments and interests, curriculum vitae, representative publications, and the names and contact information for three references to: Dr. Alex Flecker (email@example.com), Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA."
