Greetings Wendy Graham,

"Positions Open: Postdocs in Critical Zone Science (Immediate openings
available)" has been added by Jennifer Williams to Listserve - CZEN on

Positions Open: Postdocs in Critical Zone Science (Immediate openings
available) We seek several postdoctoral scholars to work at the Shale Hills
Critical Zone Observatory (CZO). A PhD in a relevant area is required. The
applicants should have interest in one or more of the following areas:


1. Geomorphology: The mechanics of hillslope and channel
sediment transport and

their role in the evolution of regolith (synthesis and


2. Geochemistry/soil science: Field/computational aspects of
weathering, solute transport, or carbon cycling.


3. Hydrogeochemistry/hydrology: Experimental/computational
aspects of

environmental tracers and “age of water” simulations using
solutes and isotopes. GIS

and programming experience preferred.


4. Computational Hydrology: Interest in
experimental/computational aspects of

fully coupled, physics-based watershed modeling. GIS and
C/C++ programming

experience necessary.


5. Ecohydrology/Physiological Ecology: Synthesis of
ecohydrological measurements, including sapflow and whole-tree water use.


6. Hydropedology: Experimental and theoretical aspects of
hydropedology and

hillslope/catchment hydrology, with an emphasis on synthesis
and modeling of subsurface preferential flow networks and soil moisture


7. Hydrogeophysics: Discriminating flow and transport
processes in porous and

fractured media with electrical and electromagnetic
geophysical methods, including coupled modeling.


The focus of this multidisciplinary NSF-funded research
effort is to quantitatively predict

the creation, evolution, and structure of regolith as a
function of geochemical, hydrologic,

pedologic, biologic, and geomorphologic processes. All positions will be
filled during 2012-2013. For more information about the Observatory contact:
Professor Sue Brantley ([log in to unmask] [1]). Interested candidates should write
to any faculty member at the CZO ( [2]) – in the application
please copy Susan Brantley ([log in to unmask] [3]) and Jennifer Williams
([log in to unmask] [4]).  In the application, please include the following:
1) cover letter describing experience and research interests2) CV
3) names of 3-4 references whom we may contact
