Contingent upon anticipated funding, the Appalachian Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science intends to hire a Faculty Research Assistant to conduct research activities on the hydrological and chemical dynamics of bioswales currently being constructed throughout Maryland.
The applicant should have a strong background in field hydrology with expertise in water and soil chemistry, the ability to work independently in the field and laboratory, and to maintain a pertinent current database for bioswale literature. As a minimum, the successful applicant will possess a BS or BA degree in an appropriate field. Questions about the position should be directed to either Dr. Ray Morgan (301.689.7172, email@example.com) or Dr. Keith Eshleman (301.689.7170, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Appalachian Laboratory (www.umces.edu/al) is located adjacent to Frostburg State University in the mountains of western Maryland, a region well-noted for its access to many outdoor activities. Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Pittsburgh are within a 2.5 hour drive. The position is available as soon as funding is in place, currently expected to be between July 1 and August 1, 2013. Salary is dependent on experience and includes benefits.
To apply, please e-mail a single PDF document that includes: (1) a letter describing relevant research experience, (2) a resume, and (3) contact information for three references to email@example.com (references will not be contacted without permission).
