USGS Mendenhall Postdoc - Colorado River Sediment Transport
US Geological Survey, Arizona, United States
Apply before: 13 November 2023

Hi All - we're currently searching for a USGS Mendenhall postdoctoral fellow to conduct research into fluvial-aeolian sediment transport along the Colorado River, including Lakes Powell and Mead and the Grand Canyon.

This project will focus on the development of models to predict the aeolian erosion, transport, or deposition of sand or dust from subaerially exposed river- or reservoir-sourced sediment deposits as a function of changing water supply, use, and regulation. This position will be based in Flagstaff, Arizona and will have the opportunity to work with a rich legacy of hydrology, remote sensing, geomorphology and riparian ecology datasets collected along the Colorado River.
