The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University seeks highly motivated candidates to fill one or more research postdoctoral or more senior research positions who will work in the areas of land surface modeling, remote sensing and data analysis. Research projects include modeling and analysis of continental and global water and energy cycles, seasonal hydrological forecasting, drought analysis, and data assimilation that merges satellite-based remote sensing into land surface models. The position will be in Land Surface Hydrology Research Group ( under the guidance of Professor Eric Wood and Dr. Justin Sheffield. The candidate needs to be interested in working collaboratively with other research staff and graduate students within the research group. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in climate-related science or engineering fields with a strong background in hydrologic sciences that includes statistics and probability, demonstrated strong programming skills (in particular Fortran, C, Perl, and Shell script) necessary to improve and operate global hydrological models and utilize large data sets, experience working with large spatial datasets (preferably using GrADS) on multiple computer platforms (Unix/Linux, Windows), and have advanced proficiency in communicating scientific findings in peer-reviewed journals and at professional meetings. The position is available immediately and will be an initial 12-month appointment with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Interested applicants should submit application online at requisition number 1200650.
