Three postdoctoral Associates, Hydrology and Geophysics

The newly established Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG) at the University of Wyoming seeks to fill three (3) postdoctoral research positions. This cluster hire targets individuals working at the interfaces between land-surface, groundwater, and surface-
water systems. Targeted areas include: Surface processes, near-surface geophysics, plot to landscape scale hydrology, paleo-hydrology, geochemical and isotopic tracers, remote sensing, and integrated modeling. We are especially interested in candidates who will develop approaches for scaling observations from point to basin levels and provide new insights into the impacts of landscape disturbance and (paleo-
)climate change on hydrology. Successful candidates will become part of a large, interdisciplinary research initiative and have access to state-of-the-art instrumentation within the newly established Facility for Imaging the Near- and Sub-
surface Environment (FINSE) and Surface and Sub-surface Hydrology Laboratory (SSHL).

Minimum qualifications include: (1) An earned PhD at the time of hire in hydrology, geophysics, geomorphology, geochemistry, ecology, or a closely related area; (2) Evidence of research productivity in the form of peer-reviewed journal publications; and (3) The capacity to work productively in collaborative and interdisciplinary teams. Applicants are encouraged to visit the WyCEHG website (http://www.uwyo.edu/epscor/wycehg/index.html) to learn more about the Center and identify potential collaborators. To apply, send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information for three references as a single PDF file to Rick Matlock (rixdogs@uwyo.edu). Review of applications will begin May 1, 2013, but applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.

The University’s policy has been, and will continue to be, one of nondiscrimination, offering equal opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment on the basis of their demonstrated ability and competence without regard to such matters as race, sex, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, genetic information, political belief, or other status protected by state and federal statutes or University Regulations.

The University of Wyoming is committed to providing a safe and productive learning and living community. To achieve that goal, we conduct background investigations for all final candidates being considered for employment. Background checks may include, but are not limited to, criminal history, national sex offender search, employment and motor vehicle history. Offers of employment are contingent upon the completion of the background check.
