Application Due Date: October 3, 2023
Position Highlights: We seek a postdoctoral researcher to work as part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary team to better understand and quantify the impacts of post-wildfire floods and debris flows to Arizona’s wildland urban interface (WUI). The postdoctoral researcher will work with novel fuels data to produce maps and predict magnitudes of potential flooding and debris flow risks following fire under the different fire and fuels reduction scenarios. The research is expected to culminate in fact-sheets for managers and policy-makers, conference presentations, and peer reviewed publications. This is a two-year funded position, although re-appointment is contingent upon performance. The researcher will be primarily supervised by Dr. Salli Dymond (Northern Arizona University), but will work closely with Dr. Luke McGuire (University of Arizona) and Dr. Ann Youberg (Arizona Geological Survey), and with an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the Arizona WUI Fire Fuel Mitigation Team led by Dr. Andrew Sanchez Meador (Ecological Research Institute; NAU).
