The Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG) at the University of Wyoming seeks to fill three (3) postdoctoral research positions. This cluster hire will target individuals who work at the interface between the land-surface and groundwater systems and augment ongoing research into mountain hydrology and critical zone processes. WyCEHG research is focused on understanding and quantifying the processes that control water fluxes in mountain environments through hydrologic, ecological, and geophysical observations and the use of computational hydrology. We are specifically targeting candidates who are using emerging techniques in integrated hydrologic modeling, the use of near-surface geophysics in hydrologic applications and the merging of observational data across disciplines. Successful candidates will become part of a large interdisciplinary research initiative and have access to state-of-the-art instrumentation within the newly established Facility for Imaging the Near- and Sub-surface Environment (FINSE) and Surface and Sub-surface Hydrology Lab (SSHL).
Applicants are encouraged to visit the WyCEHG website (uwyo.edu/wycehg) to learn more about the Center, the two facilities, and identify potential collaborators. Minimum qualifications include 1) an earned PhD at the time of hire in hydrology, geophysics, geomorphology, geochemistry, ecohydrology, or a closely related area; and 2) evidence of research productivity in the form of peer-reviewed journal publications. Preferred qualifications include 1) demonstrated capacity to work productively in collaborative and interdisciplinary teams; 2) the demonstrated willingness and ability to communicate research findings to stake holders; and 3) a history of innovative problem solving. To apply, send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information of three references to Scott Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2014, but applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.
