New Mexico Tech seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial leader to serve as the Director of the newly created Hantush-Deju National Hydrological Innovation Center, located on the New Mexico Tech campus. This endowed position will report to the Vice President for Research, and the selected hire will oversee all facets of center development and management. The Center’s vision is to improve understanding of our water resources through modern hydrological and engineering technology so we can secure a sustainable supply of water for the future, while also educating the hydrologists of tomorrow. To support this vision, the Director will develop timely and relevant research initiatives led by Center staff, in collaboration with other researchers at NMT, as well as experts at our National Labs and other universities. Through the Center and its network of collaborators, innovative and practical advancements in hydrology are to be derived, using, as appropriate, tools such as the internet of things, and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) applied to ‘big data’ sets analyzed with high performance computing. An example would include AI/ML applied to the quantification of environmental water fluxes or changes in storage.
