Postdoctoral Research Associate I

University of Arizona

Tucson, AZ, US

This is a Postdoctoral fellowship on landscape evolution as a function of spatial scale in semi-arid watersheds. The University of Arizona seeks to hire a postdoctoral scholar for a collaboration between the University of Arizona (Jon Pelletier) and the Tucson office of the Agricultural Research Service (May Nichols and Mark Nearing). A rich suite of data, including airborne and ground-based lidar, high-resolution aerial photography, runoff and sediment fluxes from a network of supercritical flumes, etc. are available. These data, together with an uptick in recent interest in using WGEW as a test bed for landscape evolution models over a range of time scales, provide an excellent opportunity to both advance landscape evolution modeling generally as well as improve our understanding of semi-arid landscape evolution under climate change.

Position is a one-to-two year job assignment, with possibility of extension if additional funding is secured.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
