Cooperative Agreement for CESU-affiliated Partner with Piedmont-Sou...
The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for collaborative research to evaluate empirical support for hypothesized relations between river flow regimes and fish population dynamics using multiple, long-term datasets, and to prepare analytical code together with the assembled datasets for public release. The overall objective is to advance flow-ecology science and applications in water resource management by elucidating mechanisms linking river flows to changes in fish populations and communities. The funding recipient will provide at least one doctoral student, or equivalent technical expertise, to collaborate with the USGS principal investigator in: assembling and formatting data for analyses; coding and executing regression analyses to address the study objectives (below); and packaging datasets and code for public release (e.g., as R Markdown files, Jupyter Notebooks, or a similar format agreed to by USGS principal investigator and the project team). It is ant...
