Postdoc (Research Hydrologist)

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)

Urbana, IL, USA 🇺🇸

The U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Central Midwest Water Science Center (UMid WSC) is pleased to announce we are seeking to fill a postdoc position in Urbana, Illinois. The postdoc will lead modeling studies aimed at producing stream water quality and harmful algal bloom predictions in the Illinois River Basin, which will become the foundation for an applied system to support decision makers from farm (meter) to watershed (many hectare) scale management in tile-drained agricultural lands in the US Midwest with specific focus on the Illinois River and Great Lakes Basins. The new employee will join a collaborative group of scientists (from USGS, EPA, University of Illinois) with a wide range of expertise. The initial appointment will be for two years with continuation based on performance and continued availability of funds. The postdoc will be hired at a GS-12 (starts at $82,830), and we are seeking scientists with experience and expertise in process-based and/or machine learning modeling and knowledge of high-performance computing. In addition, exposure to hybrid process-guided machine learning approaches, which can bridge physically based and data-driven methods, is desirable but not required.
