Syracuse University's Dept. of Earth Sciences seeks applicants for a postdoctoral research and teaching associate position, with a disciplinary focus in hydrogeology. Research will involve the integration of field work and computational modeling to understand hydrologic and hydrogeologic systems. The position will be supervised by Prof. Laura Lautz. The research associate will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with Prof. Lautz and colleagues on ongoing and emerging research projects, including: hydrogeologic controls on methane occurrence in shallow groundwater; stream-groundwater interactions and solute fate and transport in urban and restored streams; and/or, remote sensing of environmental conditions using unmanned aerial systems. The research associate will also teach two courses per year, one in Hydrogeology during the Fall semester and the other an introductory course in Water & the Environment in the Spring. We are seeking a recent PhD recipient interested in pursuing their research, while also gaining mentored experience as a teacher and member of the Earth Sciences department
