2. Research Hydrologist, Chile*

Centro de Estudios Avanzados en Zonas Aridas / Center of Advanced 
Research in Arid Zones, La Serena, Chile

We invite applications for a 3-year renewable researcher position in 
Hydrology to join a group of young international scientists at CEAZA*. 
The successful candidate will contribute to ongoing projects and develop 
his/her own research on the wide range of hydrological processes 
involved in the water cycle of the semiarid Northern-Central Chile, 
including snow and glacier melt, groundwater flow and water use by 
irrigation. He/She will work in close collaboration with researchers in 
Glaciology, Hydrogeology and Water Management, but may also develop 
innovative research projects with biologists and climate scientists.

He/She will contribute to the development of a regional water 
observatory. This long-term project will generate data and therefore 
facilitate quantitative analysis of the interactions between regional 
water resources and climate.

The candidates must have a *PhD in Hydrology *or a related discipline. 
They must demonstrate their ability to use hydrological models and their 
interest in multidisciplinary research. Experience in remote sensing 
data processing is an asset. Knowledge of Spanish language is not required.

Gross salary is 1'537'500 Chilean pesos per month, plus bonuses for 
project managements.

Applications should be written in English or Spanish and include:

    * A cover letter summarizing experience and motivation for this position
    * A curriculum vitae, including a list of peer-reviewed publications
    * A copy of PhD or Master diploma and other documents showing
      degrees and former positions relevant for this position
    * A list of 2 potential referees

Applications should be submitted by E-mail to Dr. Bernardo Broitman 
(bernardo.broitman at ceaza.cl <http://ceaza.cl>).

Review of applications will begin on January 3rd, 2011 and will continue 
until no longer needed. Starting date is negotiable, but not later than 
March 2011.

*CEAZA (Centro de Estudios Avanzados en Zonas Aridas) is a non-profit 
scientific research center, established in 2003. It is dedicated to 
studying the impact of large climatic variability (e.g. ENSO) upon the 
hydrological cycle and the biological productivity in the arid zones of 
Northern-Central Chile. The successful applicant will work as part of 
the Hydrology and Modeling group at CEAZA. More information about CEAZA 
and ongoing projects can be found at http://www.ceaza.cl. Do not 
hesitate to contact Dr. Bernardo Broitman (bernardo.broitman at ceaza.cl 
<http://ceaza.cl>) for any additional details.

*3. **Dr. Donald Gray PhD Scholarship in Canadian Hydrology

*The CGU invites applications for the DM Gray Scholarship in Canadian 
Hydrology. Created to honour the memory of Donald Maurice Gray 
(1929-2005), this scholarship will be awarded to a promising doctoral 
candidate in hydrology. The scholarship is valued at $2500, and is 
awarded annually at the spring meeting of the Canadian Geophysical 
Union. All doctoral candidates in hydrology are eligible, provided that 
they are in their first 24 months of study at the time of application. 
While applicants must be registered at a Canadian university, field 
research (if applicable) can be undertaken anywhere in the world.

The application deadline is 31 January 2011. To apply, please send 
official academic transcripts, a research proposal, current CV, and two 
letters of reference to:

Dr. Sarah Boon, Secretary
Canadian Geophysical Union -- Hydrology Section
Department of Geography
University of Lethbridge
4401 University Drive
Lethbridge, AB
T1K 3M4
sarah.boon at uleth.ca <mailto:sarah.boon at uleth.ca>

Applications will be assessed based on academic excellence (30%), 
research ability and potential (50%) and communication, interpersonal 
and leadership abilities (20%).

*4. Registration Now Open - Zeroflow: PUB Workshop on Intermittent Streams*

Registration is now open for this workshop, held 23-25 February in 
Drumheller, AB.
Cost is $100 for CWRA/CSHS members and $120 for non-members. Late 
registration fees will apply after 25 January.

*5. FINAL PUBLICATION -- The Compendium of Forest Hydrology and 
Geomorphology in British Columbia*

The Compendium consolidates current scientific knowledge and operational 
experience on watershed science and management into 19 chapters and over 
800 pages. Chapters in the Compendium summarize the basic scientific 
information necessary to manage water resources in forested 
environments, explaining watershed processes and the effects of 
disturbances across different regions of the province.

The Compendium has been co-published by the BC Ministry of Forests and 
Range and FORREX <http://www.forrex.org>as Land Management Handbook No. 
66 <http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/hfd/pubs/Docs/Lmh/Lmh66.htm>.
