Recruiting: Ecohydrology Postdoctoral Research Scholar

Sunrise view in the Rocky Mountains.

The Ecohydrology and Watershed Science Lab seeks a postdoctoral research scholar to lead a field experiment to study tree water storage using stable isotopes.

The postdoctoral scholar will have a key role in an NSF-funded project focused on tree water transport and storage using a variety of methods, including sap flow, dendrometry, and stable isotope tracers. The potential exists to explore other research questions within the larger, collaborative project and the larger aims of the Ecohydrology and Watershed Science Lab. Field work is expected to take place at the Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory in Idaho.

This individual is expected to collaborate with other students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty at North Carolina State University, Idaho State University, and the University of Georgia.

The postdoctoral scholar will participate in a related education and outreach partnership aimed at broadening participation of Indigenous peoples in ecohydrology and integrating Indigenous knowledges and ecohydrology in the Mountain West. Examples of participation include guest lecturing or assisting with a future field course based at Reynolds Creek, and interacting with visiting faculty from partner institutions.

Field work is expected to take place in Idaho and may require substantial driving. A North Carolina driver’s license or the ability to obtain a North Carolina driver’s license is preferred. The position is expected to last two years. A PhD in a relevant discipline is required at the time of appointment. Preferred starting date is January 2021.
