We seek a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at the University of Wyoming to work on a team consisting of academic scientists and private contractors. The researcher will contribute to research activities to improve the measurement and modeling of consumptive use and hydrologic fluxes in agricultural systems in the Upper Colorado River Basin. We seek a candidate with expertise in vadose zone hydrologic processes and process-based crop modeling. The successful candidate will closely collaborate with a multidisciplinary team, and will oversee field data collection, model calibration and configuration, model implementation and uncertainty quantification. The incumbent will communicate with stakeholders involved in the project, and present outcomes of the project at scientific conferences and meetings, as well as write reports and publications.
The applicant should have the ability to measure and model hydrologic processes on watersheds and agriculture system. Competent with hydrologic measurement equipment (meteorologic stations, soil moisture probes) and data loggers (e.g., Campbell Scientific, HOBO etc.). Experience with process based hydrologic models (e.g, HYDRUS).
A Doctoral Degree is required for this position, however, consideration will be given to applicants that are currently pursuing their Doctoral Degree and will complete the degree prior to starting work. Candidates must have demonstrated experience in using process-based hydrologic models and have hands-on experience in data assimilation techniques. Experience and skills in hydrologic measurement field equipment, measurement and modeling of evapotranspiration, use of remote sensing data to estimate ET, programming languages (e.g. Fortran, C++ and Python/R) and analytical skills in model evaluation are strongly preferred.
