This post is associated with an extension to the project resulting from delays on data collection associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. The successful candidate will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in hydrology or an associated branch of environmental science or environmental engineering. Tasks will include some model application, data analysis, participation in field data collection and contribution to completion of project papers.
