Listserve – CZEN: Biogeochemistry/ Ecohydrology postdoc Utah

Greetings James King,

“Biogeochemistry/ Ecohydrology postdoc Utah” has been added by Paul Brooks to
Listserve – CZEN on CZEN.org.

The iUTAH (innovative Urban Transitions and Aridregion
Hydro-sustainability) project anticipates hiring 2-4 postdoctoral fellows
the next 9 months to work with hydrologists, ecologists, biogeochemists,
climate scientists, social scientists, planners, and engineers.  The
successful candidate for this position
will work with iUTAH faculty and students at a facility consisting of both a
scale urban hydro-observatory and experimental bioretention systems. We are
particularly interested in an individual whose research will focus on coupled
hydrological and biogeochemical processes in urban catchment ecosystems,
modeling, observational, and experimental approaches. It is expected that
postdoctoral research will help to 1) quantify the spatial and temporal
patterns in how urbanization impacts water quality and quantity, and 2)
in the development and evaluation of solutions (green infrastructure) to
pressing water quality issues at the mountain to urban transition.
about all four available positions can be found at
http://iutahepscor.org/opportunities.html [1].


The successful candidate will become a post-doctoral associate at the
of Utah for an initial period of one year. Renewal for a second year is
subject to satisfactory progress and the availability of funds.

Expected Background: Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline
with training
in one or more of the following areas: hydrology, biogeochemistry,
environmental engineering, water resources engineering, or ecosystem science.
Experience in spatial analysis, modeling,
isotopic and biogeochemical tracers, and working with large spatial and
temporal data sets will be viewed favorably. Excellent written and oral
communication skills as well as experience or willingness to work in both
and laboratory settings required.   Priority in reviewing applications will
be given to applicants who have demonstrated
interest in bridging across disciplines and training in a team setting.


Larger Project: The iUTAH Project is building an integrated
research platform to study coupled human-natural water systems along a
montane-through-urban gradient in three watersheds along the Wasatch Front of
northern Utah.  This region is
experiencing unusually rapid population growth and climate models predict
dramatic changes in water availability. Understanding water sustainability in
this region requires an interdisciplinary approach to studying the linked
biophysical, social, and engineered aspects of urban water systems. More
information can be found at http://iutahepscor.org/ [2].

Application Process: Applications must consist of a single PDF file,
containing (in this
order): cover letter, statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, and
the names, expertise, and contact information of three references. Applicants
may also include as a separate part of their submission separate PDFs for up
three of their peer-reviewed publications relevant to their application. For
inquiries, please contact Steve Burian (steve.burian@utah.edu [3]) or Paul
(paul.brooks@utah.edu [4]).  Completed
applications should be sent to iutepscor@gmail.com [5].  The review of
applications begins immediately
for a preferred start date in early 2015
