    Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

      * Advanced capabilities in continental-domain hydrologic modeling
      * Demonstrated understanding of hydro-meteorological processes at
        both weather and climate time scales
      * Demonstrated skill in using weather, climate and hydrological
        modeling systems, including associated statistical and dynamical
        downscaling systems
      * Demonstrated skill in managing large model simulations and
        handling vast amounts of hydrologic data
      * Demonstrated ability to conduct high-quality, independent
        scientific and collaborative research (as evidenced by
