The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research fellow to study the effects of stream restoration on removal of nutrients and suspended sediments from stream water. A Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC) will be installed to restore ecosystem and habitat functions in a deeply eroded stream channel on SERC property in the summer of 2015. Discharges of water, nutrients, and suspended sediments by this stream and five other nearby streams have been monitored by SERC for about 40 years. This presents an ideal opportunity to learn more about the benefits and design considerations of a restoration method that is widely accepted but not well studied. The fellow will investigate the effects of the RSC by measuring nitrogen and phosphorus fluxes through the RSC in surface water and groundwater. Studies of RSCs in other nearby streams are also possible pending additional funding. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in environmental science or engineering, peer-reviewed publications, and professional presentations. Applicants should also have knowledge of hydrology and the biogeochemistry of N and P. Skills in data management, analytical chemistry, and the use of automated systems for in situ sensing and water sampling would also be desirable. The position is funded for 2 years. The stipend is $48,000/year plus health insurance. For best consideration, send letter of application, resume, graduate and undergraduate transcripts (photocopies are fine), and names of three references (with telephone numbers and e-mail addresses) by May 18, 2015 to Dr. Thomas Jordan (email@example.com), SERC, P.O. Box 28, Edgewater, MD 21037-0028. For more information on SERC, go here. EOE.
