*Watershed/Terrestrial Organic Carbon Modeling:* Starting Summer, 2019 at
the *City University of New York* Institute for Sustainable Cities. The New
York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) seek to hire a
postdoctoral researcher who will contribute to our efforts to develop and
test models that simulate streamflow, and loading of nutrients, sediment,
organic carbon, and precursors of disinfection byproducts, to our water
supply reservoirs. Such watershed models will be a component of NYCDEP’s
integrated suite of climate, watershed, reservoir, and system operations
models. These models are used to investigate the effects of climate change,
floods and droughts, land use change, watershed management, and reservoir
operations on the NYC water supply. Starting date: Summer 2019. Actual
start depends on candidate availability. End date: December 2020 (18-month
appointment with possibility of extension contingent on progress and
funding) Location: NYCDEP office in Kingston, NY, 100 miles north of NYC in
the Hudson Valley region. This is a full time position with employee
benefits open to eligible candidates of any nationality. Visas if necessary
can be arranged through the City University of New York. The candidate
should have the following qualifications and experience: - Ph.D. in
hydrology, watershed science, geology, water resources, civil or
environmental engineering, geography, or a related discipline. Candidates
with a Master’s degree and strong research achievement will also be
considered. - Experience with modeling of watershed hydrology and water
quality is a requirement; specific experience with SWAT is preferred. -
Experience with modeling of phosphorus, nitrogen, and organic carbon
cycling and export in forested and agricultural watersheds is a
requirement. - Experience with hydrologic or water quality modeling in a
public water supply where precursors of disinfection byproducts are of
concern is preferred. - Programming experience in Fortran; Python, shell
scripting, and/or R. For more information please send a letter of interest
and curriculum vitae electronically to: Emmet M. Owens, New York City
Department of Environmental Protection, 71 Smith Avenue, Kingston, NY
