1.  Forested Watershed Modelling Post-Doc Available at University of
Alberta, Edmonton

A two-year Postdoctoral position is available at the University of
Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The successful candidate will work
on two related projects using hydrological modeling to investigate the
impacts of forest disturbance and climate change on the flow regime of
forested watersheds. These are collaborative projects among several
Canadian universities, the Government of Alberta and the new Water
Program at Foothills Research Institute (FRI). 

The Water Program is a collaborative initiative intended to develop an
integrated team of experts that can develop watershed process knowledge.
This post-doc position is expected to develop knowledge that will be
needed by resource managers to address cumulative effects (land use and
natural disturbance) on water values. 

The candidate will work as part of a team to use data and knowledge
gained from the Southern Rockies Watershed Project (link below) to
calibrate and validate a hydrological model. 

The candidate will be based at U of A and repot to the Water Program,
Program Lead. There will be additional guidance from a Senior Scientist,
and a faculty member at U of Alberta, Edmonton. 

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hydrology or a related field and
demonstrated ability to use hydrological models in cold, forested
environments. Programming skills (C#, R, VB, etc.), experience with
hydrologic data collection in cold regions, and understanding of forest
management will be considered assets. Position is available immediately,
and review of applications will start June 30, 2011 and will continue
until the position is filled. The salary will be commensurate with

Applicants are asked to submit CV, and names and contact information of
