Postdoc in hydrology/ecohydrology at McGill University
McGill University, , Canada
Start reviewing process: 26 April 2022

Applications are invited for a fully-funded hydrology/ecohydrology postdoc position at McGill University. The position will be funded (stipend + benefits) for a minimum of 18 months, with a flexible start date (between September 2022 and May 2023, depending on the availability of the selected candidate). The position may be extended beyond the initial 18-month period, based on performance and funding availability. The successful candidate will address gaps in the scientific understanding of the hydrobiogeochemical behavior of humid temperate watersheds across a gradient of scale and human impact, using readily available data.

Candidates should have:

  • A PhD in hydrology or in a related field (e.g., physical geography, earth science, environmental science or engineering)
  • Strong numerical skills
  • A strong publication record (for their career stage) in internationally leading journals

Candidates should also have experience and interest in two or more of the following areas:

  • Event-based hyetograph-hydrograph analysis
  • Concentration-discharge relationships
  • Geospatial analysis (i.e., processing of DEMs and satellite images)
  • Watershed classification
  • Big data analytics and machine learning
  • Physically-based hydrological modelling

The selected candidate will work with Dr. Genevieve Ali and will have the opportunity to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of researchers based at McGill University and other institutions. It will be possible for the selected candidate to pursue independent lines of inquiry and co-author publications led by other team members.

Application procedure: Interested individuals should prepare an application package including: (1) a short cover letter outlining their research experience, (2) an up-to-date CV, and (3) the contact information of at least one academic referee. All qualified applicants will be considered without regard to their race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship, or disability status. Applications should be sent to Genevieve Ali (

Closing date: There is no official closing date. Applications will be reviewed as they come in. Do not hesitate to reach out to me at if you have questions.
