The College of Natural Resources at NC State University is currently seeking five (5) highly qualified candidates to engage in applied interdisciplinary research focused on understanding how salinization affects natural resources and the people who live, work, and recreate in the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula of North Carolina. Candidates are sought across five discipline-specific research concentrations (ecohydrology & watershed science, human dimensions of natural resources/tourism, wildlife populations & habitat management, forest and natural resource markets, and geospatial analytics). Working with stakeholders, decision-makers, and collaborators in the region, the NC State team expects to outline locally adaptable solutions to problems associated with salinization. Specifically, the team will rely on a range of methods to assess and model salinization-related impacts to water resources, wildlife, forest product markets and tourism in the region. For more specific information on each position and application instructions, please see the full ad here.
