Jobs & Opportunities
Postdoctoral researcher position: Integrated ground water-land Surface Modeling
The Catchment Hydrology and Spatial Analysis Lab in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Riverside, CA invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher position on Integrated Groundwater-Land Surface Modeling. The selected candidate will lead Integrated Groundwater-Land Surface Modeling experiments using the ParFlow.CLM model as part of an interdisciplinary team of hydrologists and climate scientists. The specific objectives of the project are to improve understanding of surface water-groundwater interactions at large catchment scale and assess the impacts of climate variability and land cover change on groundwater resources. This research position will provide an exceptional professional development opportunity in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.
If interested, please send a cover letter, CV and three references to Dr. Hoori Ajami (firstname.lastname@example.org), application review will begin immediately.
Postdoctoral opportunity: Examining relationships between Critical Zone moisture fluxes and observed soil organic carbon
The Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory and Boise State University announce a position for a funded postdoctoral researcher to examine relationships between Critical Zone moisture fluxes and soil carbon storage and ecosystem fluxes using models and data. The primary research advisor and collaborator is Dr. Lejo Flores (Boise State University, Geosciences). The successful candidate will collaborate closely with colleagues to leverage extensive soil, monitoring, and geophysical datasets to constrain subsurface Critical Zone properties required by a physics-based integrated hydrologic model. The postdoc will also have the support of the Reynolds Creek CZO team (principally at Boise State University, Idaho State University, and the Agricultural Research Service), who have interdisciplinary expertise in hydrologic modeling, landscape ecology, biogeochemistry, and soils science. The researcher will focus on the science questions, conduct the activities, and have at their disposal the unique resources described below.
If interested, you should send a (1) letter of interest specifically identifying skills and prior experience that make you a compelling candidate, (2) your current CV with three professional references, and (3) one published or submitted manuscript that best illustrates your skills and expertise that are relevant to the position to professor Alejandro Flores (email@example.com).
