Postdoctoral Opportunity with the Catalina–Jemez CZO


02 Dec 2014

The University of Arizona is seeking a postdoctoral scientist to help lead a drilling and borehole extraction project that has the objective of resolving relations between regolith structure, hydrologic flow paths, and biogeochemical weathering in the deep CZ subsurface (to tens of meters) in the Catalina – Jemez Critical Zone Observatory (SCM-JRB CZO).

The postdoctoral scientist will work closely with a team of faculty, staff, and graduate students in

  • using geophysical datasets to guide the establishment of borehole locations;
  • extracting regolith cores for physical, chemical and biological analysis;
  • instrumenting boreholes with sensors to enable subsequent monitoring for hydrologic dynamics;
  • numerical modeling of deep weathering/CZ processes; and
  • leading data analysis and writing manuscripts with deep CZ datasets and model results.

Required qualifications include a Ph.D. in earth or environmental sciences.

Preferred qualifications include prior experience with subsurface drilling operations and instrumentation for groundwater monitoring.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, and names/email addresses of at least three professional references at the UA Human Resources job site. If this brings you to the Human Resources home page instead of to the job posting itself, click on “Search Postings” in the upper left, and then enter the number 57033 in the box next to the words “Job Number”. This will bring you to the application page for the position.

Candidates should feel free to contact any member of the CZO investigator group for further discussions on this position.
