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!
