The Department of Ecosystem Science &; Management at the University of Wyoming (ESM; is recruiting a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Watershed Hydrology. We are seeking a candidate who will bridge basic and applied research in mountain hydrology with an emphasis on the use of computational techniques to better understand hydrologic processes, flow paths, and transport in complex systems. High impact research areas targeted with this hire include integrating climate, landuse or management scenarios into dynamic hydrologic models to provide future forecasts to address water sustainability issues and the use of hydrologic and geophysical observational data to guide model development. We seek a canidate who can apply quantitative methods that couple surface, vadose zone and groundwater exchange at a range of spatial and temporal scales. This position will teach within the ESM department and is expected to provide teaching support to and participate in the interdisciplinary graduate degree programs in water resources and hydrology (; The successful hire will be able to leverage significant research support from the ongoing UW-EPSCoR research initiative in hydrology and geophysics (WyCEHG; and work collaboratively with the growing body of UW computational scientists with a research focus on hydrology and natural resources.

The successful candidate is required to have an earned PhD at the time of hire in hydrology, watershed management or a closely related field with a research focus on hydrologic modeling and evidence of research productivity in the form of peer-reviewed journal publications. Postdoctoral experience is desired and preferred candidates will show evidence of grant activities and research that spans traditional disciplinary boundaries. In addition, preferred candidates are expected to have demonstrated the ability to: develop and maintain an externally funded research program; show commitment to undergraduate and graduate education; work collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams; communicate research findings to a wide range of audiences; and conduct research in field-based science and computational modeling.
