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.
