We seek the best scholar in systems biology who integrates advanced 'omics techniques to improve the management of aquatic ecosystems. Examples of areas that might be of interest include, but are not limited to, the use of eDNA to track and study rare or invasive species, use of functional genomics to understand the triggers of toxin production in harmful algal blooms, use of metabolomics to understand the mechanistic consequences of coastal hypoxia on benthic communities, or use of proteomics to predict the effects of climate change on Great Lakes fisheries. The successful candidate will be appointed in the University of Michigan's School for Environment and Sustainability, and will join a team of five CIGLR Research Scientists and 37 research support staff who are housed at NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL) in Ann Arbor. CIGLR Research Scientists work with government PIs from NOAA on projects that contribute to sustainable management of the Great Lakes. In addition to interactions with NOAA-GLERL, CIGLR Research Scientists are part of the faculty body of SEAS, where they have access to additional research facilities and resources such as the large M.S. and Ph.D. graduate programs. The University of Michigan is consistently ranked among the top American public research universities, and Ann Arbor is routinely ranked as one of the best places to live in the U.S. due to its affordability, natural beauty, preservation of wooded areas, vibrant arts program, and lively downtown. This position represents a great opportunity for those focused on aquatic research and management to join a premiere academic institution. Qualifications. The position requires Ph.D. in a relevant field of the biological sciences, a strong record of scholarly publication, and activities demonstrating a trajectory towards national recognition as an expert in the field. Importantly, we seek candidates who have a demonstrated history of working on multi-disciplinary teams to solve real-world problems in the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems. Therefore, candidates must show evidence of collaboration across disciplinary boundaries to develop implementable solutions to sustainability challenges. Compensation. The position offers a highly competitive salary and full benefits at the University of Michigan. The position comes with a guarantee of full-funding for the initial appointment of three years. After three years, CIGLR Research Scientists are expected to support 90% of their salaries from grants. CIGLR Research Scientists routinely receive grant support from collaborative projects with NOAA GLERL, successfully securing their salaries by leading both non-competitive and competitive grants after the initial three year period. Mission. At SEAS we are committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive and equitable environment that respects diverse experiences, promotes generous listening and communications, and discourages and restoratively responds to acts of discrimination, harassment, or injustice. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is deeply rooted in our values for a sustainable and just society. To apply.
