>Postdoctoral Internships at USGS
>Marine and Coastal Surveys Team
> Western Region, Menlo Park, California
>One or two postdoctoral researchers with skills and interests in pursuing
>projects in the following areas are being sought immediately:
>Marine Sediment Transport Modeling: Work with on-going projects to apply
>modern shallow-water marine sediment transport models to problems in
>specific geographic regions. Requires experience in sediment dynamics,
>handling of marine data, and computational skill.
>Wetlands/Estuarine Geology: Investigation of wetlands sedimentary
>processes, geomorphology, and recent stratigraphic history. Requires
>familiarity with principles of wetlands geology and ecology and
>understanding of sediment transport; field experience in sedimentologic and
>stratigraphic sampling useful.
>Quantitative Marine and Coastal Geomorphology: Evolution of seafloor and
>coastal morphology through quantitative investigations. Able to deal with
>large data bases in combination to solve problems in deciphering geologic
>processes and interpreting seafloor and coastal geology and its stuctural,
>sedimentary and tectonic underpinnings. Specialization in computer methods
>in remote sensing, image processing, statistics, and GIS data bases.
>Environmental Geochemistry: Investigation of the geological and chemical
>processes controlling the distribution of organic contaminants in marine
>and coastal environments of the western US. Requires a multidisciplinary
>approach integrating organic and inorganic chemistry with geology.
>One or two candidates will be selected for a one-year term, with possible
>extension to a second year. The position(s) carry a stipend of $38,000 per
>annum with limited operating expenses, depending upon project resources.
>Application deadline is August 30. Selection will be made in early
>September. The Western Marine and Coastal Surveys Team web home page can be
>found at http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov . Click on research activities to find
>descriptions of the various projects planned for the coming year.
>The positions are available through the Earth Science Intern Program of
>USGS by application to both The Environmental Careers Organization, 381
>Bush St., San Francisco, CA 94104-2812, atten: Mikal Gilmore, 415-362-5552,
>and Oak Ridge Associated Universities, 130 Badger Ave., Oak Ridge, TN
>37831-0117, atten: Keith Newport, 423-576-3402.
