Postdoc: Social-Agricultural-Hydrological Modeling, Kansas River Basin
The Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas is hiring a postdoctoral scholar with a passion for water sustainability and socio-environmental research to contribute to the USDA-funded Sustainable Adaptations to the Future Environment of Kansas’s Agriculture and Water (SAFE KAW) project - more info about the project here: https://today.ku.edu/2022/06/24/kansas-geological-survey-project-aims-help-agricultural-communities-prepare-risks-climate
The postdoc will synthesize methods from hydrology, hydrogeology, biogeochemistry, crop modeling, and community resilience to explore the response of the Kansas River Basin to climate change and identify strategies for sustaining the linked social-agricultural-hydrological system in the 21st century. It is expected this work will lead to fundamental advances in human-water systems theory and applied research benefits for local water and land managers. Thus, the ideal candidate would have strong technical skills for working with and coupling environmental and social models, interest in advancing human-water systems theory, and a desire to engage with an interdisciplinary team of researchers and stakeholders.
This position will be part of the HydroEcology of Anthropogenic Landscapes group (HEAL@KGS) supervised by Sam Zipper (https://www.samzipper.com) and will work closely with project collaborators at the KGS (Erin Seybold), Kansas State University (Vaishali Sharda, Kate Nelson), project graduate students/interns, and stakeholders.
Starting Date: July 2023-January 2024 (flexible)
