Postdoctoral Associates are temporary Academic Professionals dedicated to the pursuit of greater professional expertise after the attainment of the doctoral degree. This category recognizes that doctoral recipients in some disciplines may require intensive advanced work in a particular discipline before seeking permanent employment. Postdoctoral Associates are not eligible for extended-term appointments. It is characteristic of Postdoctoral Associates to work with a small set of faculty mentors who are responsible for directing the employee’s research and training. The temporary nature of internships, the precariousness of grant funding, and the desire of many Postdoctoral Associates to acquire permanent employment early in their careers call for a specific set of governing regulations for this category of employee.



Post Doctoral research position in Coastal Hydrology 


The Befus Hydrology Group at the University of Wyoming is seeking to hire a postdoctoral researcher to assist in a collaborative, NOAA-funded study on testing green to grey adaptation strategies for dynamic, coupled marine-groundwater-wetland systems. The postdoctoral scholar will develop and implement numerical modeling analyses primarily for the groundwater and wetland components. The research will contribute to larger project goals by interfacing with collaborator-run models and through brainstorming workshops with local, regional, and national stakeholders.

The appointment will have an initial one-year term with benefits starting as early as November 2020 with the potential for renewal for the extent of the funded activities, totaling three years.





A completed PhD degree at time of start with a thesis focus on hydrology, coastal hydrodynamics, groundwater/hydrogeology, quantitative wetland ecology, or a closely related field. The applicant should have moderate to extensive experience with numerical modeling and scientific programming (Python preferred; MATLAB, R, or other language with openness for learning Python at a minimum)



Additional preferred applicant qualifications are a strong (or strongly developing) publication record, interests in both fundamental and applied hydrologic research, and excellent communication skills.
