The Climate System Research Center at the University of Massachusetts invites applications for two postdoctoral researchers in hydrology and biogeochemistry. These one- to two-year positions will be located in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The successful candidates will develop, refine, and implement numerical models and advance understanding of linked hydrological and biogeochemical flows defining river systems across the western Arctic. The overarching goal of the research is to quantify the timing and magnitude of terrestrial water, carbon, and energy exports across the region, and assess the associated impacts of climate change.

Applicants must have completed a PhD in atmospheric science, biology, biogeochemistry, ecology, hydrology, or related field by the time of appointment; a background in biogeochemistry or hydrology in the context of modeling and analysis; experience in development and application of hydrological/biogeochemical/land-surface models; demonstrated proficiency in scientific programming languages such as Fortran and C/C++; expertise in shell scripting and/or data languages used to analyze and interpret large spatial data sets (Matlab, R, Python); and a strong scientific record as evidenced by publication of authored manuscripts in refereed journals and presentations at scholarly conferences. Strong written and spoken communication skills in English are also required.

Applicants must submit a cover letter describing relevant experience and qualifications and a curriculum vitae to Michael Rawlins at rawlins [at] geo.umass.edu.
