Postdoctoral Associate in Water Resources Systems Modeling & Planning for Change in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University

Professor Patrick Reed’s Decision Analytics for Complex Systems research group within the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University seeks one or more postdoctoral associates. The position(s) will initially be available for one year with a potential renewal for two or more years.

Candidates should have strong computational skills, ideally with a focus on water resources systems modeling at the river-basin scale. Experience with high-performance computing, uncertainty analysis, and coupled human-natural systems modeling is desirable. Additionally, emerging advancements in control and machine learning (e.g., deep reinforcement learning) are of interest but not required. Ideally, candidates would have a Ph.D. in water resources engineering, hydrology, or a related field. The focus of this research will be on the risks, resilience, and sustainability of major regional water resources systems (e.g., the Mid-Atlantic, the Colorado River Basin, and the Central Valley, CA). The research will have a particular emphasis on understanding the implications of human responses to evolving climate extremes. Pay Ranges: The successful candidate will be offered a Postdoctoral Associate position for 12 months, with possibility of extension based on performance and fund availability. The hiring offer range for this position is $56,484 to $80,000 depending on education, experience, discipline and relevant skills. The position can be remote with prior approval, but the home location needs to be in the United States.

The hiring rate of pay for the successful candidate will be determined considering the following criteria: • Prior relevant work or industry experience. • Education level to the extent education is relevant to the position. • Academic Discipline (faculty pay ranges reflects 9-month annual salary) • Unique applicable skills. To apply: Application materials must be submitted on-line through AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/27451

Through this website, applicants are to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the names and contact information for at least three references. The successful applicant anticipated hire date is October 1, 2024 (or earlier based on candidate’s availability). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Questions can be directed to cee_search@cornell.edu
