The Watershed Ecology Lab at the University of Florida (www.watershedecology.org) and the UF Water Institute (www.waterinstitute.ufl.edu) are seeking a highly motivated and creative Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a new $5 million interdisciplinary project researching tradeoffs among water quantity and quality, land use, climate, environmental policy, and the economy.
The successful candidate should have a PhD in the hydrological sciences or engineering, strong quantitative and modeling skills, excellent written and oral communication skills, and an interest in working with a diverse group in the production of disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated creative approaches to modeling complex systems (e.g., linking hydrological modeling to social-ecological system responses, applying statistical or analytical approaches to optimize hydrology and land use management within political or regulatory contexts, etc.) and who have worked productively on interdisciplinary research questions.
The position offers a competitive postdoctoral salary and excellent benefits, with up to three years of funding available, contingent on evaluation. Review of applications will begin January 31st, 2017 and continue until the position is filled. The preferred start date is April 2017, but no later than August 2017.
