PostDoc opportunity at University of Guelph in Watershed Modeling via CSDMS

University of Guelph

Guelph, ON, Canada 🇨🇦

Looking A dynamic, innovative and highly motivated researcher to work on a challenging project to address a critical knowledge gap concerning the impact of land management practices on hydrological processes, soil properties, and phosphorus losses during the peak loading periods (winter and early spring) in agricultural watersheds in the Canadian Great Lakes basin by improving watershed (SWAT model) and field scale models. The successful candidate is expected to make changes (in structure and code) to enhance the capability of a watershed model and a field scale model to improve simulation of the spring and winter conditions in Ontario, Canada, and subsequently calibrate and validate the model using gathered and collected data to identify factors (e.g. climate, topography, soil, land use management, etc.) associated with high phosphorus losses during the peak loading periods.
