The research component of this position will focus on watershed-scale
management of soil and water resources in the critical zone. This program
area integrates theoretical and applied approaches to explore the complex
physical, chemical, and biological processes associated with coupled
hydrologic and biogeochemical cycles, and interactions between the soil
the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. Specific
and methodological approaches of interest include 1) interfaces between
natural and managed (e.g., agricultural and urban) landscapes, 2) emphasis
vadose zone hydrology and/or solute transport at a range of spatial and
temporal scales, 3) integration of landscape-scale remote sensing data with
quantitative modeling. Research applications may be in a range of ecosystems
as related to plant productivity,
