The Forest Ecohydrology and Watershed Science (FEWS) Lab and the Watershed Processes Lab at Oregon State University are recruiting a Postdoctoral Scholar (1.0 FTE, up to 24 months) to begin in September 2021. The opportunity will support a Postdoctoral Scholar to address research questions about the water quality and stream ecology response in headwater streams to forest management activities.
Specifically, the Postdoctoral Scholar will collaboratively assess the influence of different riparian treatments on canopy closure, solar radiation, near-stream air temperature, stream longitudinal thermal regimes, and stream primary productivity. As part of this opportunity, the Scholar will help maintain current data collection infrastructure across 18 watersheds in Northern California, analyze data, participate in mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, present results at conferences and professional meetings, and publish in peer-reviewed journals. The research will improve understanding of how forest harvesting activities affect water quantity, quality, and stream ecology to facilitate future policy and land management decisions.
We encourage all interested applicants to apply for this position by sending all application materials to Dr. Kevin Bladon ( ) and Dr. Catalina Segura ( ) by April 16, 2021. Interested applicants should submit: (a) a CV that includes the names of at least three professional references, their e-mail addresses, and telephone contact numbers and (b) a cover letter or email describing their interests and experiences in the topic area, goals, and how they meet the required position qualifications outlined here: http://fews.forestry.oregonstate.edu/JobAds/PostDocAd_2021-02-17.pdf”
