Post Masters RA – Watershed Hydrobiogeochemical Modeling

Job Description

The candidate for this position will study the hydrologic and biogeochemical processes associated with river- groundwater exchange at watershed scale utilizing a suite of simulation codes, for example, subsurface flow and reactive transport code PFLOTRAN, Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), WRF-Hydro, and their equivalents. The candidate will be expected to participate in the development of novel conceptual models for modeling real-world flow and biogeochemical transport at various catchments within the Columbia River Basin. The candidate will work with a multi-disciplinary team of computational and experimental scientists to understand how the watershed-scale hydrologic and nutrient cycling is impacted by the hydrologic exchanges between the surface water and groundwater. This position will require numerical modeling, data analyses and visualization in a high performance computing environment.

Closing Date: April 29, 2019 – closing soon!

Transportation Matters: Moving Washington Forward

Washington state’s economy, its people and their quality of life depend on a multimodal, integrated transportation system that works for all of its users, regardless of age, ability or economic status. Secretary of Transportation Roger Millar will discuss the Washington State Department of Transportation’s role as stewards of the state’s $200 billion investment in transportation and how the agency is managing today’s challenges – congestion, system preservation, land use, workforce and more. Millar also takes a look ahead to future transportation trends including system resilience, alternative energy, new and emerging technology, as well as funding and investment priorities.

TODAY! First CEE Water Seminar

Please join us for the first CEE Water Seminar of the quarter on Thursday, April 18th at 3:30 pm in More Hall Room 225.
Speaker: Dr. Curtis Deutsch, School of Oceanography
Title: Climate Change and Ecosystem Response in the California Current System
 
Dr. Curtis Deutsch received his PhD in 2003 from Princeton University in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science. He is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Washington School of Oceanography. Dr. Deutsch’s research aims at understanding the interactions between climate and ecosystems. He combines numerical models with diverse types of biological and physical data to discover the biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, with a focus on the mechanisms that regulate nutrients and oxygen cycling over a range of time scales from years to millennia. He also works with terrestrial ecologists to understand how climate influences the patterns of thermal fitness, and their implications for biodiversity in a changing climate. He received an Investigator Award from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and is a Fellow of the Kavli Frontiers of Science.
