Stanford University (California) — post-doctoral researcher position aimed at
developing strategies for management of both floods and droughts in heavily
developed watersheds using hydrologic modeling coupled with GIS. The project
strives to develop hydrologic simulation-management models involving rainfall-
runoff processes in basins where surface reservoir releases are regulated for both
flood and drought protection. Climate change is very likely to result in increased
variability of rainfall, which will make water management even more challenging.
These basins support agriculture and municipal activities with water supplies
obtained from rivers, reservoirs, and groundwater. Simulation of groundwater-
surface water interactions and groundwater modeling are also key. Foreign travel
will be necessary to Europe and India.
This position is part a multi-year effort on water-food-energy security in developing
economic regions. The position will be filled as soon as possible to run for ~24
months. Please send a complete CV including publication list, copies of three of your
publications, transcripts from your BS, MS, and PhD, plus other postdoc experience
(if any), and a statement of your research goals and how your training relates to this
aspect of the FUSE project. In addition to the above documents, please provide
contact information for at least 3 academic references who may be contacted.
Kindly upload your information in pdf format only. Word documents will not be
accepted. Your cover letter should be addressed to Professor Steven Gorelick, Dept.
of Earth System Science, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305-2115 USA. Please
title the Subject: Water Security Postdoc – and your last name (family name).
Start date is on or before January 2023.
