University of Alberta

Edmonton, AB, Canada 🇨🇦

The Watershed Science & Modelling Lab of the Earth and Atmospheric Department at the University of Alberta
is looking for an innovative and highly motivated candidate to develop models and conduct research on
adaptation to changing water in western Canada under uncertain future climate change. The successful candidate
will utilize established physical-based models for hydrology and water demand of agriculture, environment and
other water-use sectors in Alberta to study dynamic interactions of anthropogenic and natural systems and to
examine ‘integrated watershed management’ and adaptation options under uncertainty and facing climate change
impact with an interdisciplinary approach at river basin scale. The end goal is to provide scientifically credible
knowledge for formulating adaptation measures and informed decision making in an uncertain future in western
