Postdoctoral Fellow - Watershed water quality modelling and application for regional-scale climate change impact assessment - Posted February 2024

The Watershed Science & Modelling Laboratory (WSML) of the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alberta is looking for one innovative and highly motivated candidate to develop models and conduct research on “watershed nutrient modeling under changing climate”. The successful candidate will work with and/or enhance the existing process-based agro-hydrological models and data at the WSML for agricultural watersheds of western Canada. More specifically, the candidate will contribute to understanding of nutrient fate and transports from terrestrial soils into the river systems, and their fate and transport in the river systems by application in prairie watersheds of western Canada. The candidate is highly expected to collaborate with other graduate students at the WSML and develop collaborative publications as well as their independent publications. The end goal is to provide scientifically credible knowledge for sustainable management of water and food resources in an uncertain future.

This is a full time position for one year and potentially for two years, depending on the performance of the candidate in the first year. Hiring is immediate for spring 2024 and position is open until filled

Please send your updated CV to Dr. Monireh Faramarzi via faramarz@ualberta.ca
