Post-doc in hydro-climatology (Prairie View A&M University)

The successful candidate will conduct research in the field of water resources and extensive field experiments, with several areas in CARC. Will also assist PI with data downscaling, predictions and evaluation.

Responsibilities:

Conducts research in the field of water resources and field experiments, with potential applications to hydrological modeling, climate forecasting, and water resources management at CARC

Assist PI with the climate data downscaling, prediction and evaluation; conducting research on impacts of land use/cover changes on eco-hydrologic processes, agricultural water resources management and evaluation of decision support systems for agricultural and landscape settings

Assist PI on irrigation and nutrients best management practices for sustainable use of natural resources and environmental protection in a changing climate, and numerical modeling using spatial data

Assist the principal investigator (PI) in ongoing research projects (experimental and modeling) related to spatial hydrology, remote sensing, drought monitoring, and field experiments

Assist in writing research reports, manuscripts, grants, present results at scientific meetings. Participate in extension and outreach activities as needed by the program

Work in collaboration with other researchers in CARC

Assist undergrad and graduate students, and research technicians with research

Other duties as assigned and needed
