Please see details below and attached about a post-doctoral research opportunity in watershed hydrology with the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory and Kings River Experimental Watersheds. Apologies for cross-posting, and please forward to potentially interested candidates.
Position Description: The University of California, Merced is a dynamic new university campus in Merced,
California. The University opened in September 2005 as the tenth campus of the University of California and
the first American research university in the 21st century. In keeping with the mission of the University to
provide teaching, research and public service of the highest quality, UC Merced offers research‑centered and
student--‐‑oriented educational opportunities at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels through three
academic schools: Engineering, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences/Humanities/Arts.
The Kings River Experimental Watershed (KREW) and the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory (SSCZO)
jointly invite applications for a postdoctoral research position. The successful candidate will use and
synthesize existing data collected in and around the KREW and the SSCZO to better understand the
geophysical, geochemical, hydrological and ecological controls on the development and function of the Critical
Zone. The incumbent will also evaluate the effects of prescribed fire, uneven‑aged, small‑group tree
harvesting, and natural disturbance on Critical Zone processes through data synthesis and numerical
modeling. This position will be based at UC Merced, with the opportunity to work with KREW and SSCZO
investigators at other locations. For further information see:
KREW: https://www.fs.fed.us/psw/topics/water/kingsriver/ and SSCZO: https://criticalzone.org/sierra/ or
contact any of the KREW and SSCZO investigators.
Required qualifications include: a Ph.D. in Watershed Hydrology or related field; well‑developed data
analysis and/or modeling skills; and excellent writing, organizational and interpersonal skills.
Preferred: The ideal candidate will have a strong publication record in fields related to Critical Zone science
and forest management impacts along with demonstrated experience linking geospatial, remotely sensed and
in‑situ datasets of water, nutrients, soils, vegetation, geochemistry, geophysics, and meteorology. Experience
in geospatial and/or hydrologic modeling is also desired. Interested individuals should submit 1) cover letter
2) Curriculum vitae, 3) a list of 3 references with contact information including mailing address.
How to Apply: visit https://aprecruit.ucmerced.edu/apply/JPF00517 and follow the instructions.
