Available: PhD and Postdoc Positions in Hydrology/Watershed Management at University of Alberta

Job Description
A PhD position is available to investigate the runoff generation in mountainous headwaters catchments. The candidate is expected to be able to combine concepts of groundwater / surface water interactions focused on in-channel water flowpaths (up welling/down welling) with hillslope processes to advance the science of runoff generation. This position is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project (SRWP) which is a long-term project focused on investigating the impacts wildfire and forest harvest disturbances on local and regional watershed processes in the southwest Rocky Mountains of Alberta (link below).

A two-year postdoctoral position is available for a watershed cumulative effects management project. The candidate is required to take a big-picture perspective and use the existing knowledge from individual research projects along with cumulative effects management principles to characterize the ground and surface water processes and identify management strategies applicable for the region and pressures. Management of the watersheds that supply drinking water for Dawson Creek, British Columbia will provide focus for the project.

Positions are available March 2013 or later. The search for candidates will continue until the positions are filled. Applicants are asked to submit CV, and names and contact information of at least 3 academic references to Axel Anderson by email:

Both positions will be supervised by Uldis Silins, U of Alberta and Axel Anderson, Foothills Research Institute.
