This position requires application of large-scale hydrologic modeling with specialization in high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, remote sensing, and cloud computing. The ideal candidate will complement process and computational hydrologists at UA by bringing expertise to advance national-scale water prediction in hybrid computational environments. We seek applicants familiar with the planning and designing of resilient infrastructure and communities, decision making under uncertainty, and applying emerging techniques from mathematics, computer science, and data science to advance hydrologic, hydraulic, hydrodynamic, water quality, and ecosystem modeling applications.

Hydroinformatics - Motivated by the expansion of data acquisition systems and the need for managing and using massive datasets, this position requires specialization in information systems and technology for water management, engineering, and operations, with expertise in extreme data management, analytics, data mining, large dataset access, remote sensing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, water systems modeling, and geographic information systems. The ideal candidate will align with needs for research in design and development of water databases, derived data products, middleware, web portals, and software contributing to open-source development, FAIR data principles, and the needs of a diverse water sector. We seek applicants with experience working with geospatial and time series data and creating advanced platforms for managing, processing, sharing, and analyzing water quantity and quality observations.

Outstanding candidates in other water research areas will also receive full consideration.
