POSITION FILLED- Post-Doctoral Position in Hydrogeophysics, Dept of Geophysics, Stanford University

We are currently in Year 3 of a 4-year project funded by, and conducted in collaboration with, Schlumberger Water Services. The focus of the project is the integration of geophysical data in the decision-making framework for water resource management in regions threatened by seawater intrusion. Specific topics of interest include the development of improved methods for 1) assigning support and uncertainty to various forms of hydrologic and geophysical data, 2) forward modeling of geophysical data, and 3) weighting and integration of geophysical data with other forms of data. We are working in collaboration with the Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency, using available data from this geographic area (near Watsonville on the California coast), but our approach is intended to yield results that are transferable to other locations. As part of this project, geophysical data will be acquired that can be incorporated into the groundwater model of the Pajaro Valley basin. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences or Engineering, with knowledge of applied geophysical methods and a strong background in computational methods. The position is now available, and is a two-year position, subject to continued funding. Please send a detailed c.v., and the names and email addresses of three people willing to provide letters of reference, to Rosemary Knight by email: Applications will be accepted until the position is filled and announced on this website.
