The successful candidate(s) will develop a research program to understand how sociological and ecological factors interact to affect patterns, processes, and functions of aquatic ecosystems within heterogeneous landscapes. A particular emphasis for the Landscape Ecology research unit will be developing research related to the effects of environmental heterogeneity on fish and aquatic species distribution and abundance, including leverage of genetic approaches (e.g., environmental DNA, population genomics). Areas of study for additional positions include the impacts of extreme heat and precipitation on aquatic and riparian ecosystems in the context of a warmer, wetter climate.
