*Postdoctoral Researcher (Hydrogeology) - 80269Organization:  ES-Earth
SciencesPOSITION SUMMARY:The Earth Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory (LBNL) is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher
position focuses on evaluating X-ray computed tomographic images and other
measurements from core data, hydrologic, and geophysical data to aid in
understanding Arctic soil property distribution as a function of tundra
geomorphology and providing associated information to land surface models.
Numerous data sets will be analyzed and correlated to characterize the
geophysical the hydrological properties of arctic soils. Some laboratory
tests may be required. Results will be presented at conferences and
published in peer-reviewed journals.SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES:• Analysis of
X-ray computed tomography image data to interpret Arctic soil/sediment
properties• Interpretation of core data (imagery, cryostructures and
properties)  in the context of Arctic ice wedge polygon and drained thaw
lake basin geomorphology• Ability to manage, manipulate and jointly
interpret multiple data sets• Use a medical X-ray CT scanner to CT scan
incoming cores• Perform simple laboratory tests such as bulk density and
hydraulic conductivity.• During the course of investigation, the candidate
will present research at scientific conferences, as well as co-author and
publish results in peer-reviewed journals.• Additional - Assist with
proposal development and student training as needed. KEY SUCCESS
FACTORS:• Experience with image analysis is a key prerequisite for the
position.• Strong preference will be given to candidates with previous
knowledge of:   - Arctic soils   - Soil characterization methods• A recent
Ph.D. in geological, hydrological, or computer sciences, with a background
in image processing methods is expected in addition to a record of original
and high-quality research is required.• Ability to collaborate within a
multi-disciplinary research team and good communications skills are also
necessary.• Preferred - Experience with Arctic soils and  soil
characterization methods.• Preferred - Familiarity with Arctic
geomorphology.• Preferred - Familiarity with field geophysical methods
(such as ground penetrating radar, electrical resistance tomography).NOTE:
