> A Postdoctoral Research Associate is sought to conduct research spanning
the Critical Zone Observatory network (http://www.criticalzone.org/ ). This
network of nine heavily instrumented landscapes is generating large
datasets and deep insights into the nature of the water and energy fluxes
through Earth’s living terrestrial surface. The successful applicant will
be supervised by Noah Molotch (CU Boulder)   and Ciaran Harman (Johns
Hopkins University) to work with a team of scientists from across the
network. They will synthesize these data, and answer two fundamental
questions about the relationship between critical zone architecture and
hydrologic function: 1) How does critical zone structure influence
hydrologic processes and functions? 2) Do hydrologic processes and critical
zone structures co-evolve? They will address these questions through an
inter-comparison of 1) perceptual models (in the sense of a model based on
words, description, diagrams, etc.) of each CZO, capturing what is
understood about their internal structure and hydrologic processes, and 2)
quantitative hydrologic signatures that capture essential differences in
the CZOs’ hydrologic functions.  The initial position is for one year, with
the possibility of extension.
