Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Assistant – Watershed Modeling - Posted March 2021

The Watershed Evaluation Group at the University of Guelph is seeking a postdoctoral fellow or research assistant to join the research team led by Dr. Wanhong Yang. The team members, comprising postdoctoral fellows, graduate, and undergraduate research assistants, have versatile expertise in watershed hydrologic modeling, integrated GIS, hydrologic and economic modeling, watershed evaluation of beneficial management practices (BMPs), and desktop GIS and WebGIS based interface tool development. The successful candidate for this position is expected to play an important role in several projects that develop GIS based integrated economic-hydrologic modeling for evaluating cost effectiveness of BMPs in agricultural watersheds. S/he should: 1) have a solid training on hydrology and/or soil science, 2) have hands-on experiences of applying watershed hydrologic models such as the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) to conduct long-term simulations of runoff and its associated constituents (e.g., sediment and nutrients) at a watershed scale, and 3) be familiar with commonly used GIS tools (e.g. ArcGIS). The demonstrated computer programming and relational database skills would be an asset. The position may be filled as either a postdoctoral fellow or a research assistant. For the postdoctoral fellow, a Ph.D. degree is required at the time of appointment, whereas, the excellent candidates holding a master’s degree will be appointed as a research assistant. This is a full-time, grant-funded research position for one year with possible renewal upon fund availability and a satisfactory performance.
