We seek a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to investigate the hydrologic
impacts of recent changes in land-cover and climate over key regions of the
United States. Specifically, the goals of this research are to (1) identify
the drivers of increased flood severity within the Missouri River Basin
over the last 4 decades using a hydrologic modeling framework, and (2)
assess the impacts of land-cover change on evapotranspiration in the Great
Plains region to provide insights on the direction of future changes under
projected climate scenarios. The participant is encouraged to develop new
and novel approaches to these problems and extend their work to other
geographical domains. The participant will become familiar with the latest
approaches for quantifying disturbance impacts with geospatial tools
including land surface modeling and statistical analyses. This research
position will provide an exceptional professional development opportunity
in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment, with the
potential to participate in education and outreach activities.

Research will be done within the University of Colorado’s prestigious
