Dear colleagues

A Post-doctoral position focusing on regional scale Isotope Hydrology and
Geochemistry will be available at Alberta Innovates - Technology Futures
(AITF). Please forward this e-mail to anyone who you think might be
interested. Thanks

Following is the details:
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to develop and
interpret a national database for stable water isotopes in Canadian
rivers.   Over 200 river stations across Canada are being monitored for
stable water isotopes as well as other geochemistry signatures under a
collaborative research agreement with Water Survey of Canada. This
research initiative is part of Canadian efforts to support the IAEA Global
Network for Isotopes in Rivers (GNIR). We seek a motivated individual to
manage the monitoring efforts and conduct scientific research to interpret
and disseminate the data to research communities and the public.

The successful candidate is expected to coordinate sampling efforts,
manage analytical results reported from internal and external labs, and
develop a national isotope database for Canadian rivers. Desired
applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Earth Sciences, Hydrology,
Environmental Engineering or a relevant discipline and should be fluent
and proficient  in English. Advanced knowledge in stable isotopes and
geochemistry are essential. Experience in management of large, complex
databases and strong quantitative skills in data analysis are
advantageous. Training and experience in geographic information systems
(GIS), hydrological modelling, and spatial/temporal trend analyses are a
plus. The candidate is also expected to take the lead role in producing
peer-reviewed publications and reporting annually to Water Survey of
Canada.  Opportunities to networking with government agencies, industrial
partners and international research agencies are numerous. The successful
candidate will also have the opportunity to participate in and make a
contribution to other large industry-funded projects led by AITF research

To apply, please send a 2-page research statement , accompanied by a CV
and contact information for three references via email to Dr. John Gibson
(john.gibson at albertainnovates.ca) and Dr. Yi Yi (yiyi at uvic.ca).

Appointments may begin as soon as a suitable candidate is found. A
competitive salary and benefits package is available. The final candidate
will be required to undergo a security clearance.
