2 Postdoctoral Research Scholar Positions Available in Hydrology and Hydroclimatology, US

A research group (www.gabrielevillarini.com) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iowa  seek two post-doctoral research scholars.

The research will fall within the broad topics of hydrology and hydroclimatology. Of particular interest is the examination of spatial and temporal changes in extreme events, their relation to different climate states, their predictability and projected changes. I am also open to other related research topics.

Initial appointment is full-time for one year, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and continued funding. This position is immediately available, and the start date is relatively flexible. Women and individuals representing underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants must apply by sending CV, cover letter, and contact information for 3 references to iihr-employment@uiowa.edu referencing job posting # 101289. Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and continue until the positions are filled. For additional information, contact Gabriele Villarini (gabriele-villarini@uiowa.edu).

The selected researcher will be part of IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering. She/he will have access to an exceptional range of resources, including research computing support, laboratories, instrumentation and equipment, mechanical and electrical shops, etc.

The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, Iowa. Iowa City has been ranked one of the nation’s most livable cities (USA Today, 2006), and one of the best small metropolitan areas for careers (Forbes Magazine, 2013).

It is a community built around higher education, with vibrant cultural opportunities and a long history of international connections, leadership, and accomplishment. Iowa City offers the safe, friendly quality of life for which the Midwest is known.


Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field prior to starting this position is required. Candidates from subsets of fields including hydrology, atmospheric sciences, climate sciences and applied statistics are particularly encouraged to apply.

Experience in downloading and analyzing large data sets and model outputs is strongly recommended. Individuals with expertise in computer programming (in particular R and Python) and applied statistics are encouraged to apply.
