A postdoctoral position is available starting Fall 2021 in Runzi Wang’s lab at the School for Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan. I am looking for a highly motivated postdoc who will work on the topic of continental-scale urban stream water quality investigation, with urban form and climate variability as the main influencing factors of interest. The candidate will work together with Wang to investigate urban water quality management under a multidisciplinary sustainability framework using sophisticated analytical procedures.
The position will require (1) excellent statistical knowledge and coding skills. (2) experience with manipulating a variety of environmental and socioeconomic datasets (e.g., land use and land cover, building footprint, climate and weather, etc.). Theoretical foundation of urban hydrology and urban sustainability is highly preferred. Potential tasks will include (1) Data curation of the continental-scale urban stream water quality dataset and the associated social and environmental drivers. (2) Algorithm development to investigate urban stream water quality with the high-dimensional drivers. (3) Scenario assessment and decision making under different climate change and urban development scenarios. In addition to research, the postdoc candidate will have the opportunity to mentor undergraduate and graduate students and work with the project team to develop future grants.
The position includes a salary of $51,800 per year and full benefits, including employee health insurance eligibility. Appointment is for one year with renewal for a second-year possible following performance evaluation and dependent on funding. This position can be performed remotely given a reliable internet connection and regular engagement with the project team.
- PhD in environmental science, geography, urban planning, landscape architecture, natural resources, computer science, data science, information science or related field is required
- A strong interest in interdisciplinary research.
- Strong qualitative and quantitative analysis background
- Familiarity with R or Python
Preference will be given to applicants with a strong theoretical foundation and research interest in either urban hydrology or environmental planning. Programming experience in Google Earth Engine, Python, and/or R is preferred.
Applications are welcome and encouraged from all qualified individuals regardless of background and identity.
If interested, the following application materials should be emailed to Dr. Runzi Wang (email@example.com). Please include “Postdoc Position Application” in the subject line of your email.
- Cover letter describing general research interest
- One representative manuscript (preferably first authored and published)
- List of 3 references with contact information (email)
