PCIC is seeking to fill a Postdoctoral Position in Hydrology

PCIC is currently seeking to fill a Postdoctoral Position in Hydrology. The Postdoctoral Scientist will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team that seeks to develop adaptation strategies that minimize the joint impacts of climate change and reservoir regulation on fish habitat. The postdoctoral position will be required to assess the hydrologic sensitivity of the Nechako River basin, a regulated system located in central British Columbia, to climate variability and change. In this context, this position is responsible for the enhancement and application of PCIC’s version of the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC-GL) hydrology model to explicitly represent the hydrology, surface routing and water temperature of this regulated system. The position will also evaluate the extent to which hydrology and water temperature in the Nechako watersheds has responded to observed climate variability and change and evaluate potential hydrologic impacts under projected future climates.

Application: Please send your application including a cover letter, CV, and three professional references to Markus Schnorbus, climate@uvic.ca, with “ATTN: Postdoctoral Position in Hydrology” in the subject line. Please indicate whether you are legally able to work in Canada.
