The newly established 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 add complementary skills in one or more targeted
areas: integrated modeling; near-surface geophysics; watershed to
landscape scale hydrological observation and analysis; paleohydrology;
remote sensing; and the application of geochemical and isotopic tracers.
We especially are interested in candidates who will develop approaches
for scaling observations from point to basin levels and provide new
insights into hydrological changes associated with landscape disturbance
and (paleo) climate change. 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).
The University of Wyoming is dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. To achieve that goal, we conduct background investigations on prospective employees. The University of Wyoming is committed to diversity and endorses principles of affirmative action. We acknowledge that diversity enriches and sustains our scholarship and promotes equal access to our educational mission. We seek and welcome applications from individuals of all backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
Application Materials Required:
Minimum qualifications include 1) an earned PhD at the time of hire in hydrology, geophysics, geomorphology, geochemistry, ecology, or a closely related area; and 2) evidence of research productivity in the form of peer-reviewed journal publications. Preferred qualifications include 1) the capacity to work productively in collaborative and interdisciplinary teams; 2) the willingness and ability to communicate research findings to stake holders; and 3) novel and complementary skill sets targeted for the new Center.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the WyCEHG website (http://www.uwyo.edu/epscor/wycehg/index.html) to learn more about the Center and identify potential collaborators. To apply, send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information of three references to Rick Matlock (email@example.com). Review of applications will begin on August 15, 2012, but applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.
