notre-dame2Job Description
The Environmental Change Initiative (ECI)[] at the University of Notre Dame (ND) in collaboration with the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (CEEES) is seeking applicants for a two-year post-doc position to conduct large-scale hydrologic modeling studies over the Great Lakes region. The research will create long-term observed meteorological records and future projections of climate from regional and global scale climate models, coupled to large-scale hydrologic models. These tools will be used to explore the impacts of observed climate variability, climate change, and land use/management on human systems and ecosystems in the Great Lakes region, supporting interdisciplinary research within the ECI and CEEES at ND. A successful candidate will have a PhD in hydrology, hydroclimatology, ecohydrology, or a related field in the physical sciences. Well-developed computer programming skills in the UNIX environment (e.g. experience with C or Fortran, scripting languages, and use of LINUX clusters for parallel computing), experience dealing with large data sets, and excellent written and oral communication skills are important qualifications for the position. Experience with statistical or dynamical downscaling of climate model simulations and with implementation and calibration of physically-based, distributed hydrologic simulation models is also desired, as is experience in the analysis and modeling of water resources systems. Applicants with experience working in an interdisciplinary research environment are also particularly encouraged to apply.

ND is an equal opportunity employer and offers a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package. In addition to primary research activities, the position will involve the supervision of graduate students, preparation of grant proposals, teaching, stakeholder education /outreach opportunities, and extensive interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers in a number of fields outside of hydrology. Several publications are expected to result from the research.

Applicants should submit a statement of interest (~2 pages), a brief summary of qualifications and recent research activities (less than 5 pages), a list of three professional references (name, affiliation, and contact information), and a CV.

Please send these application materials via e-mail as a single pdf file to Dr. Alan F. Hamlet, CEEES, University of Notre Dame ( to

Applications received by March 15, 2013 will receive full consideration, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
