Date added: 29 October 2013

Organisation: California Institute of Technology (Caltech)

Location: Pasadena, United States of America

Closing date for applications: 30 September 2014


The California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Postdoctoral Scholars Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in JPL's Water and Carbon Cycles group.

The research will involve building a hydrologic extremes assessment modelling system. Dr. Konstantinos Andreadis, in JPL's Climate, Oceans and Solid Earth Sciences section, will serve as JPL postdoctoral advisor to the selected candidate. The appointee will carry out research in collaboration with the JPL advisor, resulting in publications in the open literature.

Candidates should have a recent PhD in hydrology (or related field) with a strong background in hydrologic and/or agricultural modelling and remote sensing. Experience in data assimilation, drought assessment, and/or climate modelling, as well as the VIC hydrology and DSSAT crop growth models is highly desirable. Candidates who have received their PhD within the past five years since the date of their application are eligible. Postdoctoral Scholar positions are awarded for a minimum of one-year period and may be renewed up to a maximum of three years.
