Postdoctoral position - watershed modeling, climate and land use change - Saint Louis, MO


Ad
Applications are being accepted for a postdoctoral position in watershed hydrologic modeling in the lab of Dr. Jason Knouft in the Center for Sustainability and Department of Biology at Saint Louis University. This position focuses on developing watershed hydrologic models that produce estimates of streamflow, nutrients, and water temperature in the Meramec watershed in Missouri based on climate and land use change scenarios. These estimates will be used to assess the impacts of various management practices on water quantity and quality as well as biodiversity throughout the watershed. The successful candidate will be expected to develop GIS-based Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and MIKE SHE/MIKE-11 hydrologic models. The postdoc will also be encouraged to develop independent lines of research and will have the opportunity to collaborate with biologists, hydrologists, and remote sensing specialists at Saint Louis University and the University of Illinois. Additional information on the lab is available at knouftlab.weebly.com. A PhD in a related research field is required by the starting date of employment and experience with either the SWAT or MIKE models is preferred, but not... View Full Description
