The 2nd International Workshop on Urbanization in Watersheds: Towards a Sustainable Urbanization

Supporting Material(s): 

Assistant Professor, Sustainability Science

Postdoctoral Scholar – Critical Zone Scientist

the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory (SSCZO) is accepting applications for a postdoctoral research position T he successful candidate will use and synthesize existing data collected in and around the SSCZO to better understand the geophysical, geochemical, hydrologic, and ecological controls on the development and function of the Critical Zone (CZ). 

Graduate student position at Ohio State

We seek a master's or PhD student to participate in a multidisciplinary study of river-groundwater interactions, chemical transport, and microbial population dynamics in alpine streams. The project will involve a team of hydrologists and microbiologists and will include researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The student's primary role will be to develop reactive transport models. Opportunities exist for field work in Colorado.

Postdoctoral position open for data analyst of cross CZO network water and energy fluxes

A Postdoctoral Research Associate is sought to conduct research spanning the Critical Zone Observatory network (http://www.criticalzone.org/ ). This network of nine heavily instrumented landscapes is generating large datasets and deep insights into the nature of the water and energy fluxes through Earth’s living terrestrial surface. The successful applicant will be supervised by Noah Molotch (CU Boulder)   and Ciaran Harman (Johns Hopkins University) to work with a team of scientists from across the network. They will synthesize these data, and answer two fundamental questions about the relationship between critical zone architecture and hydrologic function: 1) How does critical zone structure influence hydrologic processes and functions? 2) Do hydrologic processes and critical zone structures co-evolve? They will address these questions through an inter-comparison of 1) perceptual models (in the sense of a model based on words, description, diagrams, etc.) of each CZO, capturing what is understood about their internal structure and hydrologic processes, and 2) quantitative hydrologic signatures that capture essential differences in the CZOs’ hydrologic functions.  The initial position is for one year, with the possibility of extension.
