RESEARCH ECOLOGIST: Cedar Creek Ecosystem Reserve
Wednesday, February 09, 2022 01:10 PM

The University of Minnesota’s College of Biological Sciences is recruiting a PhD level, Research Scientist to lead high-impact ecological research at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve (CCESR) in collaboration with Cedar Creek's Long-Term Ecological Research (CDR LTER) team of faculty, post-doc, and graduate student researchers. The successful applicant should have research interests and skills that complement and extend existing CDR LTER research and a record of published, impactful research. Additional duties include collaborating in the development and implementation of ecosystem and land management plans at CCESR, such as the experimental burning program to restore and maintain oak savannas.

Research at CDR LTER integrates long-term observations and experiments, theory, and models to achieve a mechanistic and predictive understanding of how ecological systems respond to interacting human-driven environmental changes and how those responses alter environmental processes and ecosystem services. Most CDR LTER research takes place at CCESR, which is a 2200 ha reserve located 40 minutes north of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus.

Further information on CDR LTER and CCESR is available here:
