Postdoctoral Position in Hydro Geomorphology (Deadline: November 15, 2021)

Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated postdoctoral scholar with experience in the fields of hydrology and geomorphology to join our team at the Department of Forest Resources Management, University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The study sites are located in the interior of British Columbia, Canada. The candidate will be required to work and live for short periods close to the study sites and work at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver for the remainder of the year. The interior of the British Columbia region offers many exceptional recreational opportunities including hiking, climbing, hot springs, canoeing, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain biking, and wildlife watching all within close proximity to the study sites.

This research fellowship is available for one year, renewable for a second year contingent on performance and availability of funding. The ideal start date is January 1, 2022 (earlier start date is also possible).


The successful candidate will contribute to research aimed at understanding and quantifying the effects of land use and land cover changes on the hydro-geomorphology of channel networks in nival regimes at a wide range of spatial scales. The candidate must have demonstrated strengths in fieldwork and quantitative analyses. Experience with methodologies for quantifying and mapping bedload transport of coarse sediment will be considered an asset.

Preference will be given to candidates with strong communication skills and with demonstrated abilities to publish in international science journals. Only candidates who hold a Ph.D. degree at the time of appointment can be considered for this position.
