[GilbertClub] Post-doctoral Fellowship in National Scale Modeling of River Corridors

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to bring your attention to the following postdoctoral opportunity:

Post-doctoral Fellowship in National Scale Modeling of
River Corridors

New Mexico Tech’s Hydrology Program (www.ees.nmt.edu) is seeking applications for
a post-doctoral fellow to join the USGS Powel Center’s “River Corridor Group” (https://goo.gl/JjnKgB) This position offers a
unique opportunity for collaborative synthesis with recognized academic and
government leaders in Earth Sciences, providing fundamental scientific
advancement to societally relevant challenges. The appointment will support a
national-scale synthesis project to improve the characterization of river
hydrogeomorpohology and its cumulative influence on water quality. The project
integrates data mining, assimilation and synthesis of large physical and
biogeochemical datasets with new physics-based models for transport in large
river networks. Research goals include assembling and assimilating hydrogeomorphic
data into a new river corridor transport model to assess cumulative effects,
and forecast outcomes for changing water quality at the scale of the nation. Applicants
should have a demonstrated ability to independently develop research questions
and answer them by consolidating large data sets into mathematical models. In
addition, applicants are expected to work collaboratively with the Powell
Center group, leading research activities that generate the submission of two
or more peer-reviewed publications each year. The successful candidate will be
hosted at New Mexico Tech’s Hydrology Program under the supervision of Dr.
Jesus Gomez-Velez with additional supervision by the other project PIs Dr. Jud
Harvey (USGS), Dr. Elizabeth Boyer (Penn State), and Dr. Durelle Scott
(Virginia Tech). The appointment is for up to two years, and computing
facilities and travel are supported. Interested applicants should email a CV,
one relevant publication, a one-page statement of past and present research
goals, and the names and addresses of three references to Dr. Jesus D.
Gomez-Velez (jdgomez@nmt.edu). The
preferred due date for applications is April 3, 2016. However, applications
will be reviewed as they are received until the position is filled. 

Warmest regards,
