The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking a postdoctoral scientist to conduct innovative research in modeling river biogeochemistry fluxes and land-river interactions in biogeochemistry using the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM).
The candidate will work with a team of scientists across multiple national laboratories to test and improve the capabilities of E3SM in modeling river biogeochemistry fluxes and land-river interactions in carbon, nutrients, and salinity. The candidate will improve E3SM in land-river interactions and evaluate the models against observations of land and river hydrology and biogeochemistry. The candidate will also conduct numerical experiments to address important science questions related to human-land-river-ocean interactions, such as climate and human induced coastal hypoxia and salinity intrusion, in focused regions and across the globe. This position offers exciting opportunities to collaborate on a number of DOE funded research projects at PNNL that focus on developing coastal modeling capabilities in earth system models such as the Integrated Coastal Modeling (ICoM) project.
The position is for two years and renewable contingent upon performance. The successful candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in earth sciences, civil and environmental engineering, or related fields. Experiences in the development of hydrology, biogeochemistry, or reactive transport models and ability to analyze model outputs and observations using modern computational and statistical tools will be considered as key qualifications during the evaluation.
- Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years (60 months) or within the next 8 months from an accredited college or university.
A Ph.D. degree in earth sciences, civil and environmental engineering, or related fields.
