Job Description

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a postdoctoral researcher for research related to observing and/or modeling of coupled terrestrial surface and subsurface hydrological and biogeochemical processes. As part of a multi-disciplinary team of scientists in land surface modeling, watershed hydrology, hydrogeology, and subsurface biogeochemistry, the selected candidate is expected to participate in the development of an integrated land surface/subsurface model and apply it to understand effects of variations in the hydrologic cycle and climate change on coupled hydrologic and biogeochemical processes in the groundwater-surface water interaction zone, their impacts on local to regional scale land-atmosphere interactions, and in turn climate.
