A position is now officially open with the Ecological Analysis Group at the USGS Research Center in Lafayette Louisiana. We are looking for an individual to manage data, perform preliminary analyses, and help with interpretation as part of a team studying complex relations in ecological systems. We are currently conducting studies on a wide range of topics including: global change, invasive species, biodiversity, monitoring in National Parks, fire ecology, wildlife populations, and many others. These studies relate to a wide variety of types of ecosystems as well. In all these studies, we are working with teams of collaborators and working on data sets huge and small to disentangle the complex sets of processes influencing natural ecological systems. To further our program, we are seeking an individual with some experience with data analysis to work as part of a team - managing and understand the data, performing select analyses, helping to interpret the findings, and learning new techniques. Lots of opportunities for individual development in conjunction with this position. Requirements: MS in ecology or related field, some experience in data analysis, a willingness to learn new techniques, and someone comfortable with working in a team environment.
