University of Idaho
Postdoctoral Fellow - Hydrologic Modeling
University Research (Div)
$55,000 or higher depending on experience and education
The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the NSF-EPSCoR GEM3 program (www.idahogem3.org/) aimed at understanding how genetic diversity and phenotypic plasticity affect species response to environmental change, shaping both population response and adaptive capacity. Two focal taxa are under study: one aquatic (redband trout, a subspecies of rainbow trout) and one terrestrial (sagebrush). These taxa are integral to ecosystems in the American West and central to land-use management decisions that drive the regional economy. The selected candidate will model watershed scale, stream flow and temperature as it relates to modeling future scenarios related to land use and climate. The successful individual will be integrated into the Institute for Modeling Collaboration and Innovation (www.imciuidaho.org/), working collaboratively with a state-wide team of researchers.
Education: Ph.D. by the time of appointment in hydrological sciences, civil engineering, or a related discipline.
Experience with hydrological modeling demonstrated by publications in the field.
Strong quantitative skills demonstrated by publications.
Ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
Evidence of strong written and oral communication skills.
Experience with physically-based modeling, stream temperature modeling and computer programming.
