Greetings Wendy Graham,
"Post-Doctoral Position in Mountain Hydrology and Water Chemistry" has been added by Tim White to Listserve - CZEN on CZEN.org.
The University of California at Santa Barbara and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service are recruiting for a post-doctoral research position in hydrology and stream /soil chemistry. The appointment supports long-term research at the Kings River Experimental Watersheds (KREW) project in the Sierra Nevada, California. The position will be located at the Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Research Station office in Fresno. The KREW project is quantifying the variability in physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of 10 headwater streams and their watersheds and evaluating effects from forest restoration activities, tree thinning and prescribed fire. The KREW hosts NSF’s Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory and is part of NSF’s National Ecological Observatory Network.
posting can be found here, at University of California, Santa Barbara under MSII POST.
Applicants should have academic training and experience in stream hydrology; training in biogeochemistry is also highly desirable. The position requires: (1) knowledge and skill in quantitative analyses of hydrologic, atmospheric and climatic data; database management; and quality assurance/quality control, (2) knowledge and skill in streamflow, atmospheric and climate measurement equipment and techniques; and (3) participating in interdisciplinary, team-oriented research.
Applicants should have a demonstrated ability to independently conduct field investigations, utilize large data sets, and write for scientific publication. Funding is available for two years. Working collaboratively with the project PI, Dr.
Carolyn Hunsaker; students; and staff in both the Forest Service and University of California Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Lab (Dr.s David Herbst and Scott Cooper), the successful candidate will lead research activities that generate the submission of two or more peer-reviewed publications each year. Strenuous field work is required, including difficult winter conditions.
Salary Range: $39,264 - $41,364 per year, commensurate with experience
Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. program. They should email a CV, transcripts, one or two relevant publications, a one-page statement of past and present research goals, and the names and contact information of three references to UCSB HR. Informal enquiries can be made directly to Dr. Carolyn Hunsaker, [log in to unmask] , 559-323-3211.
