Research Associate for Texas Water Observatory

16.02.2016 - Texas A&M University, USA

We are now accepting applications for a Research Associate position for the Texas Water Observatory.

We are now accepting applications for a Research Associate position for the Texas Water Observatory: < >. The position is with the department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Texas A&M University, College Station. The Texas Water Observatory (TWO) is a new field observation network involving multi-disciplinary teams of scientists led by Hydrologists, Ecologists, Geoscientists, and Engineers at field sites across Texas. The mission of the project is to study how land use and climate interact with and drive critical zone processes unique to deep alluvial soils found in floodplains and terraces, focusing on resilience of plant and soil processes to long and short-term weather extremes and anthropogenic management activities. Candidates will be part of a research program working to improve the ability to spatially and temporally quantify soil properties and water movement across watersheds and to improve understanding of water transport processes affected by the variation in soil, vegetation, and near- surface geology.

The RA will be the primary person responsible for installing and operating research equipment and facilities (eddy covariance, soil geophysics, meteorology) at multiple sites within the Brazos River Corridor. In addition, the RA will participate in and occasionally lead field campaigns for collection and monitoring of vegetation and soils, or other project-related activities. As a member of the science team s/he will also assist in project design, conduct experiments, analyze data, and prepare results for publication.
