   Headwater streams present new challenges for climate change research due
   the complex geophysical processes regulating stream temperature and
   We seek a Postdoctoral Research Associate to investigate the geomorphic
   landscape features controlling stream sensitivity to climate variables
   the Appalachian highlands. An understanding of hyporheic flow dynamics
   a critical aspect of this research problem and will be a central
   objective of the project. Candidates for this position should have
   experience in fluvial geomorphology, field sampling protocols, and
   statistical modeling techniques. Ideal candidates would have experience
   using mini-piezometers in streams, working with GIS and LIDAR data,
   evaluating stream geomorphic features relevant for fish habitat.

   This position is supported for 2 years as part of an interdisciplinary
   study in Shenandoah National Park (Virginia) and the Delaware Gap
   Recreation Area (Pennsylvania and New Jersey). The project is funded by
   the National Park Service and the US Geological Survey. The position is
   located at the USGS Leetown Science Center in Kearneysville, West
   and will require some travel for fieldwork. To express interest, please
   send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to
   Nathaniel (Than) Hitt - nhitt<at>usgs.gov. Letters of interest will be
   accepted until the position is filled.
