The Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Arizona (UA) is seeking 3 motivated postdoctoral scholars in hydrology and atmospheric sciences. As part of the effort, the successful candidates will work with a team of investigators from the University of Arizona, other universities, and/or federal agencies to improve hydrologic models and forecasting, as well as the coupling of land surface and atmospheric models to support Earth System Predictions. They would be joining a team that includes a broad range of expertise in land-surface and atmospheric modeling, the use of in situ and remote sensing observations for hydrologic analysis and modeling, downscaling, and data sciences. The research efforts will enable improved hydrologic modelling that can be critical for various applications such as flood, heatwave, and/or flash-drought forecasting. As part of this effort, we expect to downscale hydrologic inputs/outputs using advanced techniques that may include machine learning to develop high-resolution hydrometeorological data products. We also welcome strong and motivated candidates who are interested in snow hydrology and efforts to improve hydrologic modeling of snow/frozen soil and/or development/evaluation of high-resolution snow products. We note that there will also be flexibility in the type of research, determined based on the strengths and experience of the candidates.

This position will be for one year with an expectation for renewal based on the candidate’s performance. The starting date is negotiable (as soon as possible).
