Postdoctoral postions (2x) – Ecohydrology Modeling and Water Resource Management

Location: National University of Singapore, Singapore
Application Deadline: Review of applications will begin November 20, 2022, and conclude when the positions are filled.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Resilient Water Systems Group (SUTD) invite applications for two Research Fellow (Postdoc) positions in Ecohydrology Modeling and Water Resources Management to begin in early 2023.

The project “On the origin of droughts in Mainland Southeast Asia—implications for water and energy security” aims to disentangle the origin of recent droughts in Southeast Asia and, therefore, determine how management and climatic influences are affecting the spatial distribution of water availability in the present and in the future. In particular, the project aims to: (1) quantify the spatio-temporal variability of water fluxes in the hydrosphere and biosphere, (2) quantify how water management interventions redistribute water availability, (3) examine how future changes in hydro-climatological conditions and anthropogenic interventions will affect droughts in the next decades, and (4) determine how future droughts will affect water and power supply security.

Application Deadline: Review of applications will begin December 2, 2022, and December 15, 2022, and conclude when the positions are filled

Cleveland State University is hiring two tenure track faculty in the Environmental Sciences:

These hires are part of a larger investment in programs focused on the environment and data science at CSU. CSU is a young, rapidly evolving university with a growing research profile. The downtown campus and Cleveland itself have been noted for their substantial revitalization, and the region offers diverse recreational opportunities, cultural activities, and affordable housing in a variety of neighborhoods within a short drive or ride on a bike, bus, or train. Faculty salaries in the BGES department are competitive with R1 universities and teaching loads are moderate and flexible. Please contact Julie Wolin with any questions.

Postdoc Position (100% TV L E13)

Location: University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany
Target starting date is February 1, 2023

The institute of Physics and Meteorology (IPM) at the University of Hohenheim is seeking a postdoc for the Land Atmosphere Feedback Observatory (LAFO) starting on February 1, 2023, in order to perform research studies on land-atmosphere (L-A) interaction.

LAFO operates a worldwide unique synergy of in-situ sensors, scanning wind, humidity and temperature lidar systems as well as radar sys- tems. This sensor synergy is applied to determine surface fluxes as well as turbulence pro- files in order to investigate new relationships among gradients, variances, and fluxes. Due to its configuration as observatory, a characterization of the diurnal cycle, transitions, the mesoscale and seasonal variability of the cloud-free and cloudy planetary boundary layer (PBL) as well as the moisture and energy budgets shall be achieved. The results shall be applied to study L-A feedback and to develop new parameterizations of L-A fluxes and turbulence including entrainment.

These objectives will be addressed in cooperation with an international research team that includes among others, e.g., NOAA and NASA in the US, the GEWEX Global Land/Atmosphere System Study (GLASS), and the Local Land-Atmosphere Coupling (LoCo) Working Group of the World Climate Research Programme.
