[GilbertClub] Gibson Postdoctoral Research Associate in Hydrogeology – University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

Gibson
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Hydrogeology – University of
Minnesota
The Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Minnesota –
Twin Cities is offering a postdoctoral opportunity to pursue
self-directed, innovative research in hydrogeology. Research emphasis
could be, but is not limited to, anywhere from the land-surface to
the bottom of the critical zone, where climate, geology, and biota
actively interact to affect water movement and quality. Research
methods or approaches should be innovative and may be field-,
modeling-, and/or laboratory-oriented. Applicants should be
enthusiastic about engaging with current research groups in the
Department of Earth Sciences; research related to or complementing
computational hydrology and hydrogeology, physical experimentation,
ecology, geochemistry, surface processes, geomicrobiology, and/or
near-surface geophysics would allow dynamic opportunities to
interact. Although there will be no formal teaching responsibilities,
those interested in developing teaching experience would be welcome
to participate in seminars or other courses. Avenues for
collaboration beyond the department are available through the St.
Anthony Falls Laboratory, the Institute on the Environment, the
Department of Soil, Water and Climate, the Minnesota Geological
Survey, and the Water Resources Center.The position is initially for one year, starting between September
2015 and January 2016, with a possible second year extension. In
addition to salary and benefits, funds are available to support
research activities.
PhD in Earth or related sciences is required at time of hire.
Candidates must apply through the University’s employment website:

Candidates must submit their CV, list of 3 references, and a two-page
statement describing their proposed research activity and the
resources required.
Questions may be directed to Professor Crystal Ng (gcng@umn.edu).
Applications will be considered until the position is filled,
although review of applications will begin 1 June 2015.Any offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion
