A Post-doctoral research associate position is available at Clemson 
University to work and lead a recently funded project that will 
investigate the consequences of different fuel reduction techniques, as 
watershed management practices against wildfire, on the exports of 
dissolved organic matter (DOM) from forested watersheds and associated 
biogeochemical processes and impacts on drinking water treatability and 
supplies. This project seeks to connect basic and applied sciences, 
engineering, forestry, hydrology, and chemistry to identify forest 
management practices to protect our potable source waters due to climate 
change. The associate will work in an interdisciplinary team 
environment, interacting with the research groups of Drs. Tanju Karanfil 
and Alex Chow and other researchers in US Forest Services and SC 
Department of Natural Resources.

1.  Plan and conduct assigned research tasks independently while working 
collaboratively with Clemson faculty, staffs, post docs, and students, 
as well as US Forest Service and SC DNR collaborators.   E/10%
2.  Train, mentor, and lead graduate and undergraduate students working 
on the project. E/5%
3.  Travel to field sites for in-situ instrumentation maintenance (e.g. 
CDOM sensors) and field sample collections after prescribed burn and 
mechanical thinning treatments.   E/25%
4.  Characterize DOM using different techniques and determine water 
treatability of different source waters including understanding of 
disinfection byproduct formation (e.g., THMs and NDMA).   E/30%
5.  Prepare project reports and manuscripts for peer-reviewed 
publications, and present research findings at national and 
international conferences.   E/25%
6.  Other duties as assigned.   E/5%


Candidates must hold a PhD in environmental science, environmental 
engineering, hydrogeology, soil science, agricultural and 
biological/biosystems engineering, forest engineering, or a closely 
related discipline at the time of employment.
