Location: Golden

Position Title
Post-Doctoral Fellow – Civil and Environmental Engineering The Opportunity
Several post-doctoral researchers in applied science and engineering are sought for high-profile research projects to improve the operational prediction of streamflow, stream temperature, floods and droughts in the NOAA Next Generation (‘Nextgen’) National Water Model. One focus area is developing a national hydrologic prediction testbed, focusing on days-to-season ahead forecasting of streamflow, snowpack, soil moisture and other hydrologic variables. The testbed will integrate, evaluate and benchmark a range of key models, datasets and methods used in the operational forecasting. A second focus area is the advancement of stream temperature modeling methods using a combination of machine learning and process modeling approaches. The positions are funded by the NOAA Cooperative Institute for Research to Operations in Hydrology (CIROH), of which the School of Mines is a core member. The researchers will use and develop state-of-the-art large-domain hydrologic models, leading weather and climate forecast datasets, and methods including meteorological post-processing, model parameter estimation, data assimilation, hydrologic post-processing, machine learning, and diagnostic evaluation, visualization and verification. Researchers will interact in a team environment with other Mines staff and students, as well as external research groups and agencies. Relevant expertise includes hydrologic modeling, machine learning in geophysical applications, handing large-scale datasets including remote sensing data, geophysical data …
