Postdoc Fellowship Statistical Modeling Of Harmful Algal Blooms

A postdoctoral fellowship is available for a highly qualified individual to join the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR, The successful candidate will work with the harmful algal bloom (HAB) team at the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) to improve our ability to predict algal bloom development and impact on human health in the Great Lakes. In particular, the candidate will develop new statistical modeling approaches emphasizing the probabilistic aspects of algal growth and toxicity and incorporate rigorous model skill assessment, and uncertainty analysis approaches. In addition to statistical model development, the candidate will assist with field planning, experimental design, data analysis, and developing and transitioning research products to application. Postdocs will be expected to maintain strong records of scholarly publication, as records of presentation at scientific conferences and public meetings.
