Multi-scale Hydrology and Processes group (MHP), Department of Civil and 
Environmental Engineering is seeking one postdoctoral research associate 
in hydrologic modeling and data analysis. The position will be based in 
PSU and will focus on hydrologic responses under different forcing 
scenarios from regional climate model datasets. The candidate will 
employ an existing coupling framework between the Process-based Adaptive 
Watershed Simulator (PAWS) and the Community Land Model (CLM). The data 
analysis component will employ advanced statistical methods. We look for 
highly-motivated candidates with strong backgrounds in numerical 
modeling, hydrology and/or biogeochemistry, and analysis of complex 
coupled terrestrial ecosystem processes. The applicants should be 
willing to work across disciplines in a team environment. Familiarity 
with physically-based hydrologic models, climate forcing datasets, CLM, 
and/or high performance computing is preferred. Due to the 
interdisciplinary nature of the project, the scholars will have plenty 
of opportunities to interact with a group of researchers from 9 
institutions. The prospective research associates will get further 
training and education in high performance computing and land surface 
modeling. Interested applicants should send their CVs, publications, a 
list of references, a description of their PhD thesis research, and a 
statement of research goals (2 pages maximum). Contact Dr. Chaopeng Shen 
(cshen at engr.psu.edu <mailto:cshen at engr.psu.edu>, 
http://water.engr.psu.edu/shen/ <http://water.engr.psu.edu/shen/>) for 
further questions. The appointment will start preferably in Spring and 
no later than September 2017. Applications will be reviewed immediately 
and are accepted until position is filled.
