Job Opening

Post-Doctoral Fellow

We have an opening for a hydrologic modeling and data assimilation. The research will involve integrating real-time field and satellite blended products into the PRMS hydrologic model used by PG&E, and update the model to use the detailed real-time data and determine the financial benefit of using the improved field data.  The work will be completed working with a hydrologic modeler at PG&E as well as researchers at UC Berkeley and Merced.

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).

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 ( ). 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.
