Sorry for the corny headline, but we just had to share that there are a whole lot of opportunities to come join us at Hasler Lab. You, too, could have an office on (usually) beautiful Lake Mendota! But deadlines are coming up soon, so start working on those applications. Here’s the rundown:
Assistant Professor of Limnology (tenure-track) – Due Nov. 1st
This position is part of the UW-Madison Interdisciplinary Cluster in Freshwater Sustainability. In addition to being an awesome scientist and researcher, we’re looking for folks committed to teaching, outreach, and collaboration. We seek a candidate to develop an internationally-recognized research program in limnology and/or aquatic ecosystem ecology. Potential areas of expertise include water quality, aquatic biogeochemistry, quantitative methods, ecosystem modeling, and global environmental change. We are particularly interested in candidates who can work collaboratively to address complex applied problems that span disciplinary boundaries and involve social-ecological dynamics.

Research Specialist – Due Nov. 5th
After years and years of helping keep our fleet of boats in working order, creating all manner of limnological instruments from scratch and chasing down pieces of our pier when floods carried them away, Dave Harring has retired. Now we’re looking for our next research specialist to, as the listing says, provide “guidance and oversight of field-based programs and operates at the interface between scientists and supporting equipment and facilities. This position provides technical expertise for the building’s research programs at a comprehensive and independent level, assists with the instructional tasks as needed, and manages and coordinates CFL research field activities and facilities.”

Post-Doctoral Research Associate
We, personally, happen to think that Hilary Dugan and Paul Hanson are two fantastic people. Here’s your chance to see just how right we are! Hilary and Paul are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to help them explore freshwater data science. More specifically, this position is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation that aims to harness the data revolution – cool, huh? The project goals are to better predict and understand controls over lake water quality, both at local and regional scales, by melding ecological knowledge with machine learning. The highly collaborative and interdisciplinary team has experts from four universities and multiple disciplines, including limnology, computer science, hydrology, and meteorology.

Graduate Student Research Associate
Don’t have your PhD yet? No problem? Hilary and Paul are also looking for a grad student interested in pursuing an M.S. or Ph.D in freshwater and marine science to help them work with their post doc and also :=”harness the data revolution.” So what are you waiting for? Apply already!

We hope to see a flood of applications (sorry, again) and can’t wait to meet all of our new colleagues! If you need more motivation, here’s a picture from a day at the office…
