The Jones Center is interested in an individual who can lead an interdisciplinary research program investigating user-inspired water resource issues in the southeastern coastal plain. The candidate should have a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, and a proven track record of conducting field, lab, and/or modeling studies that focus on watershed dynamics at any scale. We are especially interested in candidates whose work considers the role of hydrologic connectivity among soils, groundwater, wetlands, streams, and rivers. Knowledge of soil hydraulics, subsurface geology, or karst systems is a plus. The candidate will be joining a collaborative research and education community, which includes other Center scientists, university collaborators, agency scientists, and private stakeholders. The ability to conduct translational research, apply findings to water management policy and priorities, and communicate with regional stakeholder groups is preferred. The Center is firmly committed to the co-production of knowledge and will facilitate and support such efforts.

Support for the position includes 12 months’ salary, medical and retirement benefits, laboratory and office space, and funding for startup, operating, graduate student and technician expenses.
