I am re-posting the Algae Analyst position announcement that I sent in
early November to allow another month for  for those interested to
apply.  I am also including an announcement for a Lab Technician position
(diatom sample preparation).  Don Charles

==========================================================
Position: Algae Analyst
Issue Date: November 10, 2004
Job #: 896
Closing Date: Application review begins January 1 (revised from previous
date of December 1); position open until filled.

The Patrick Center for Environmental Research at the Academy of Natural
Sciences in Philadelphia has an immediate opening for a full-time Algae
Analyst. Primary responsibilities will include identification and
enumeration of soft-bodied algae (non-diatoms) in samples collected from a
variety of waterbodies throughout the United States, with an emphasis on
rivers and streams. Samples are collected as part of State and Federal
water quality monitoring programs, and ecological research projects. On
average, about 75% of time will be devoted to identification and taxonomy
of algae, and 25% on related tasks, including sample preparation, data
analysis, and writing.

Duties: The primary responsibility will be analysis of algae samples, but
investigation and resolution of taxonomic issues is also essential. All
identifications are to lowest level practical; counts may be quantitative
or semi-quantitative. Interpretation of data to make ecological assessments
is sometimes required, but responsibilities will depend on background and
experience of the analyst. The position requires close and effective
communication with Academy project team members and administrators, as well
as fulfilling Quality Assurance /Quality Control requirements and keeping
well organized and detailed records.

Qualifications: A Masters and / or Ph.D. degree in a field closely related
to Aquatic Biology is preferred, although experience analyzing algae
samples is key. Responsibilities will vary as a function of education and
experience. A strong interest and background in taxonomy of non-diatom
algae, particularly current concepts and literature, is necessary.
Familiarity with use of algae as water quality indicators is desirable.
Organizational skills and attention to detail are important components of
this position.

Familiarity with Windows-based personal computers and software,
particularly word processing (Word), database management (Microsoft
ACCESS), spreadsheets, and Internet communication is important. Experience
with image acquisition and manipulation is favorable.

The duration of the position is contingent on funding. Funding is available
for at least two years.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
Start date: Position available as early as Jan 1, 2005. Position open until
filled. The Academy of Natural Sciences offers a competitive benefits package.
This position is in addition to the Diatom Analyst position announced a few
weeks ago.
The Algae Analyst will be part of the Patrick Center Phycology Section,
which consists of 10 staff and includes two others with soft-algae
taxonomic expertise and four Diatom Analysts.

For additional information on this position, contact Donald Charles
(215-299-1090; ).

To Apply: Send resume, statement of interest, and the names, addresses and
telephone numbers of three references to:
