Berkeley Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area has an opening for a Research Scientist in Integrated Hydrological Modeling. In this position, you will be expected to work on a wide variety of integrated hydrology problems related to water quantity and quality and to employ a range of tools from data-driven to mechanistic models, and a combination of them, with consideration of the appropriate climate drivers.
What You Will Do:
• Develop and use models to understand hydrological response to perturbations at multiple scales, from the global to the regional to the watershed scale.
• Combine data-driven, machine-learning and mechanistic modeling approaches to advance understanding of integrated hydrology problems affected by evolving climate forcings.
• Analyze and integrate complex datasets including high-resolution climate data and distributed hydrological measurements.
• Use weather forecasting and climate models to drive mechanistic integrated hydrological models, subsetting results where needed.
• Use a variety of computational codes available in the Department of Energy software ecosystem that simulate overland and/or subsurface flow and reactive transport.
• Develop new research areas and proposals.
• Conduct innovative research and publish in peer-reviewed and high impact journals
• Regularly present findings at major conferences and workshops
• Contribute to Lab and Community Professional Service, and lead/organize workshops/meetings.
• Collaborate with and/or lead others in groups and forge/lead collaborations across the Area, Lab and with colleagues at external institutions.
