The Florida Rivers Lab is looking to hire an experienced R user within the UF community to help out with data analysis and management of an oyster reef restoration project. See the details after the horizontal bar or the attached pdf.
Position: Part-time experienced R user and data carpenter needed
Start date: Immediately
Hours: Flexible, 5 hours per week minimum commitment
Pay rate: Competitive hourly wage depending on experience
We have an opening for a part-time employee to provide technical assistance with work flow, data management, data visualization, and other analytical and programming skills as part of a large multiyear oyster reef restoration project. http://www.wec.ufl.edu/oysterproject/
As this project is in the beginning phases we are looking for grad students, post-docs, staff members, or others in the UF R-gators community to join our team and fill knowledge gaps by providing technical assistance in several areas including:
1. Assistance integrating a variety of datasets provided by agency cooperators into a common framework for analyses. Datasets are primarily observations of various water quality parameters from autonomous sensor networks or boat based data collections.
2. Working with these data to generate basic graphical and tabular summaries and developing analytical and visualization tools to synthesize these data spatially and share results with research cooperators.
3. Providing technical assistance related to developing a workflow and data management system for the project in cooperation with other UF programs (i.e, UF-LARC, other cooperating research labs).
4. Help to train students (undergrad and grad), staff, and faculty on these approaches.
Ideal candidate will be someone with experience in these (and other) areas as demonstrated through example projects in published manuscripts, GitHub repositories, web applications, etc. An interest in ecology, biology, geography is also preferred. Commitment to collaborative learning and best data management and coding practices is essential. Opportunities exist to join in the co-authorship of manuscripts. Position is potentially renewable for multiple semesters. Hours are flexible with a minimum commitment of 5 hours per week. Ideally the person in this position would be available to regularly meet with other team members on campus regularly but work location and hours are flexible. This is potentially a good position for an experienced graduate student seeking additional funding support and an interest in "coaching" others who are working to improve their knowledge and skills.
If interested please assemble a brief packet including (1) a letter describing your background and experience in these and related topics, (2) short CV, (3) links to example products that you have produced (such as GitHub repository, example code, graphs, published papers), (4) required hourly wage, (5) description of availability during spring semester 2018. Send this packet as a pdf to Bill Pine at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Please view lab web page<https://sites.google.com/view/floridariverslab/home> for more background on what we do.
This list strives to be beginner friendly. However, we still ask that you
