Folks (with apologies for multiple postings):
A group of researchers from the University of Delaware Dept. of Geological Sciences is looking to hire a postdoc for a 2-year study of watershed sediment dynamics. The goal of the project (funded by the William Penn Foundation) is to quantify the timescales required to deliver benefits imposed by sediment restoration projects in the White Clay Creek Watershed of southeastern Pennsylvania. A recent paper in the February issue of Geology describes some modeling results that are relevant to our approach. This project will apply techniques from several different disciplines, so candidates with diverse backgrounds may be interested. As noted in the attached advertisement, we are particularly interested in candidates with training in fluvial geomorphology and stratigraphy, sediment dating using fallout radionuclides, or geospatial analysis.
I would appreciate your forwarding the attached information to any interested students.
Jim Pizzuto, Michael O’Neal, and Neil Sturchio
