The United Nations University - International Network on Water,
Environment and Health announces five vacant research positions for a
coastal research and development project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

UNU-INWEH is commencing a substantial research and development project
in the Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) in conjunction with major land
reclamation projects there.  This project will involve the establishment
of an environmental management program, including a sophisticated
environmental monitoring program, and specific targeted research to
determine the ecological behavior of the new marine systems being
created due to the reclamation efforts.  The overall goal is to build a
proactive management program based on scientifically sound models of
ecological performance, which will make it possible to anticipate
patterns of change and ensure maintenance of a sound ecological system
with good water quality and resilient ecological communities.  In
addition, the project includes an educational component for
environmental managers in the region and more broadly, in the form of
training workshops and an international conference program.

This four-five year project requires an on-site team of several
individuals with particular skills and experience.  We are currently
seeking three Research Associates in marine science, holding Ph.D. in
marine ecology, biological oceanography, physical oceanography,
ecosystem modeling, nutrient dynamics or similar fields, and interested
in participating as members of a research team tackling real problems,
while training others in aspects of environmental management.  We are
also seeking two Research Technicians with marine science training, and
extensive and varied research experience, including SCUBA and small boat
field experience, deployment, management and use of field monitoring
instrumentation, and laboratory skills in biological and/or
environmental science, and data management and evaluation.
