I am seeking two post-doctoral research scholars to join my research
group (www.gabrielevillarini.com <http://www.gabrielevillarini.com>) in
the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University
of Iowa, Iowa.
The research will fall within the broad topics of hydrology and
hydroclimatology. Of particular interest is the examination of spatial
and temporal changes in extreme events, their relation to different
climate states, their predictability and projected changes. I am also
open to other related research topics.
Initial appointment is full-time for one year, with the possibility of
renewal subject to satisfactory performance and continued funding. This
position is immediately available, and the start date is relatively
flexible. Women and individuals representing underrepresented groups are
especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants must apply by sending CV, cover letter, and contact
information for 3 references to iihr-employment at uiowa.edu
<mailto:iihr-employment at uiowa.edu> referencing job posting # 101289.
Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and
continue until the positions are filled. For additional information,
contact Gabriele Villarini (gabriele-villarini at uiowa.edu
<mailto:gabriele-villarini at uiowa.edu>).
The selected researcher will be part of IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering.
She/he will have access to an exceptional range of resources, including
research computing support, laboratories, instrumentation and equipment,
mechanical and electrical shops, etc.
The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, Iowa. Iowa City has been
ranked one of the nation’s most livable cities (USA Today, 2006), and

community built around higher education, with vibrant cultural
opportunities and a long history of international connections,
leadership, and accomplishment. Iowa City offers the safe, friendly
quality of life for which the Midwest is known.
Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field prior to starting this
position is required. Candidates from subsets of fields including
hydrology, atmospheric sciences, climate sciences and applied statistics
are particularly encouraged to apply.
Experience in downloading and analyzing large data sets and model
outputs is strongly recommended. Individuals with expertise in computer
programming (in particular R and Python) and applied statistics are
encouraged to apply.
