Postdoctoral Position - Temple University

Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Position in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) at Temple University in Philadelphia.

The CEE and EES departments are looking for a postdoc in the area of urban hydrology with a focus on computational modeling from the scale of individual stormwater management practices (SMPs) to the subcatchent and watershed scale .  The successful candidate will work with engineers and geoscientists to characterize urban streams and SMP performance using computational modeling tools such as SWMM, as well as collect and analyse field data (hydrologic, geochemical and/or physical).  

The postdoc will also help supervise graduate and undergraduate research assistants and contribute to proposal writing.   In addition, attending meetings and interfacing with watershed organizations about project planning is expected.  Results of the work will be reported to sponsors, collaborators, and other scientists through presentations, reports, and peer reviewed journals.

Candidates with a Ph.D. in a hydrology-related topic, knowledge of modeling applications and experience in field methods can apply by sending  the following materials to Dr. Robert Ryan in CEE  () or  Dr. Laura Toran in EES ():  1) CV, 2) names and contact information for 3 references, 3) cover letter with statement of interest and description of relevant experience.  

The position is available in the Fall of 2017 and will be for a 12 month appointment.  There is potential for renewal of the appointment, depending on performance and funding.
