*Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Civil, Environmental and 
Infrastructure Engineering*

The George Mason University Department of Civil, Environmental and 
Infrastructure Engineering, within the Volgenau School of Engineering, 
is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow to conduct 
research in the fields of hydrology, remote sensing and data assimilation.

Specifically, the candidate will be involved with the project titled, 
“Optimal Precipitation Estimation for Land Surface Modeling” sponsored 
by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Joint Center for 
Satellite Data Assimilation (http://www.jcsda.noaa.gov/). This project 
proposes a new method to improve land surface model skills by optimally 
merging precipitation estimates from different data sources to produce 
the best forcing precipitation estimate that minimizes land surface 
simulation errors.

The successful candidate should be passionate and committed, have strong 
analytical and communication skills; possess excellent Fortran 
programming skills; has background in optimization, land surface 
modeling and data assimilation. The candidate will also assist the 
supervisors in the interpretation and publication of results, exercise 
functional supervision over supporting graduate students, and contribute 
to scientific publications. As part of the postdoctoral experience, 
applicants will receive mentoring for developing research proposals, and 
participation in career development activities will be strongly encouraged.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in one of the following 
disciplines: civil/environmental/water resources engineering, 
atmospheric science, hydrology, geography, physics, or a related field. 
The candidate must demonstrate an academic record of scientific 
excellence, independent research, and a strong interest in 
interdisciplinary research. Strong modeling and programming skills are 
essential. This position requires an individual who is able to 
successfully work in a team environment.
