Hydrogeologist – Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey

We are looking for an experienced hydrogeologist to join our active groundwater team. The position will initially focus on groundwater problems in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin, a terrain dominated by Paleozoic sandstones and carbonates. Potential studies in this region include investigations of well water quality and contamination susceptibility related to regional geology, karst and fracture features, groundwater flow systems, and land use changes. The hydrogeologist will also engage in applied county-scale projects as needed in other parts of the state.

Bedrock Geologist – Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey

Join our world-class group of researchers as a bedrock geologist. Your research will help expand the understanding of the geology of Wisconsin. We’re looking for someone with experience in carbonate geology, clastic sedimentology, stratigraphy, or structural geology to conduct geologic mapping to address specific research questions. Participate in the Survey’s ongoing bedrock mapping program, including field mapping and study of outcrops, organizing and interpreting subsurface geologic and geophysical logs, describe rock core and cuttings, develop isopach and depth-to-bedrock maps, and construct and interpret three-dimensional geologic data sets.

Geoscience Program Coordinator- Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey

Guided by our strategic goals of supporting and enhancing internal communication and facilitating the use of geoscience information by our stakeholders, the Geoscience Program Coordinator is a new position designed to coordinate geoscience publications and projects in support of the Survey’s strategic plan. This position serves as a member of the management team, supervises editorial staff and contracts, and reports to the Director. The position will also have opportunities to conduct geoscience research as needed by the Survey.

Groundwater Hydrology and Sustainability (Assistant or Associate Professor)

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seeks applicants for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in groundwater hydrology and sustainability. Appointment may be at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments. The projected start date is August 2019, but accommodation can be made for the best candidate.

NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship

Going to Extremes:  Growing the Next Generation of Climate Experts

We are pleased to announce the 2019 call for applications for NOAA’s Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship (C&GC) program. The fellowship program has an outstanding reputation for attracting the best and the brightest PhDs in the sciences relevant to climate change.

Postdoctoral Research Associate: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The Renaissance Computing Institute at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill seeks to fill one postdoctoral opportunity for a NOAA-funded project that will develop coupling strategies coupling the NOAA National Water Model to the ADCIRC storm surge, tide, and wind-wave model.

Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor - Computational Sustainability and Sustainable Systems Engineering

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for multiple 9 month, tenure track, full-time positions at the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment, Environmental Engineering Science area focusing on Computational Sustainability and Sustainable Systems Engineering.

Postdoctoral Scholar – Sustainable Water Management, University of California Berkeley

We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to investigate methods for balancing human and ecosystem needs via water infrastructure operations. The successful candidate will employ a range of statistical techniques to detect causal networks in water systems based on time-series data. In particular, the postdoc will focus on understanding feedbacks between hydroclimatic conditions, riverine ecosystem integrity, human needs, and reservoir operations; and on applying these inferences to the Lower Colorado River Basin in the context of multi objective reservoir operation.

Postdoctoral Fellow Appointment,  Tulane University

The Department of River-Coastal Science and Engineering at Tulane University is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Fellow appointment. We are specifically seeking outstanding applicants with a background in numerical modeling of riverine, estuarine and coastal wetland systems. Familiarity with Delft3D (or similar morphodynamic modeling packages) and mapping applications (e.g., GIS) are highly desirable.
