The São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC) of the University of São Paulo (USP) in association with FAPESP, the São Paulo Research Foundation, is offering a post-doctoral fellowship in Hydrology / Groundwater hydraulics.

The project is related to the FAPESP-financed project entitled “Water availability and quality threats in a Guarani Aquifer System outcrop zone” and the researcher will be hired for a 12-month fellowship as Post-doctoral research associate.

The post-doctoral researcher will work on the water balance of the Guarani Aquifer System area in Brazil using remote sensed data (rainfall, evapotranspiration, water storage, soil moisture, etc.) in multiple time-space scales. The purpose is to assess these hydrological components under climatic extremes and transitional land uses.

It is desired that the candidate presents background in hydrogeology, hydrology, and remote sensing, besides relevant academic performance.

This opportunity is open to Brazilians and foreigners alike to enhance international scientific cooperation. The selected fellow will receive a Post-doctoral FAPESP ( fellowship that includes monthly allowances in the amount of R$ 7,373.10 plus an individual limited research grant equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity (i.e. conference attendance, publication, and material supply, etc.).
