Job Opportunity: Post Doctoral Associate SUNY Stony Brook
Jan 4 @ 9:00 am – Apr 4 @ 11:59 pm

Brief Description of Duties:  

The Postdoctoral Associate will assist the Principal Investigator in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.  The incumbent will analyze an extensive 34-year beam trawl survey consisting of over 12,000 samples collected in the Peconic Estuary. Incumbent will develop and apply a set of metrics to the trawl data to examine whether local and regional environmental changes have increased the vulnerability of individual finfish and mobile invertebrate species, community assemblages, and ecosystem properties.  The approach will require techniques such as abundance-occupancy analysis, community trajectory analysis, and Ecosim modelling.  The outcome of the study will be a set of quantitative tools that can be used to assess the health of ecosystems from spatial-temporal data.

The Postdoctoral Associate will be responsible for:

  • Conducting research on fish/shellfish populations and communities via advanced statistics and modelling.

  • Preparing reports and publications on project results. 

  • Managing the data set.

  • Other duties as assigned as appropriate to rank and department mission.

LIRPC Launches the 2nd Annual Long Island Water Quality STEAM Challenge!
Jan 18 @ 12:15 am – Feb 1 @ 11:45 pm

LIRPC Launches the 2nd Annual Long Island Water Quality STEAM Challenge! 

Help Cultivate and Brainstorm Ways to Better Long Island through the Reduction of Nitrogen Pollution 

What: STEAM Competition – Certificates of Recognition for all Participants, Winners will be Honored

Who:   Long Island Students Grades 6-12

When: Letters of Interest due February 1, 2021

The second-annual STEAM challenge — known as the Long Island Water Quality Challenge — empowers middle school and high school students to design projects that can reduce nitrogen pollution on their school grounds. In Nassau and Suffolk counties, excess nitrogen from aging residential septic systems, fertilizer, storm water runoff, and other sources has deteriorated the quality of surface and groundwater.

The challenge was created by LINAP, a multi-year effort to reduce the amount of nitrogen entering Long Island ground and surface waters. LINAP is overseen by LIRPC, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The challenge is perfect for students working collaboratively in-person or remotely, enabling anyone to participate despite the pandemic—and giving teachers comfort knowing that no matter how this school year evolves, the program easily adjusts.

The Request for Expressions of Interest can be downloaded here.
