Postdoctoral position - watershed modeling, climate and land use change

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 required. The position is available for two years contingent upon satisfactory annual reviews. The earliest start date is September 1, 2016; however, a later start date is possible.

All applications must include a cover letter with a statement of research experience and interests, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references. Please send these files to Dr. Jason Knouft at jknouft(at)slu.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Saint Louis University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer (AA/EOE), and encourages nominations of and applications from women and minorities.
