Post-Doctoral Research Program

Multimedia modeling of nutrients

Project number:AMAD–05–04–2015-01
Lab/Center/Office:NATIONAL EXPOSURE RESEARCH LAB
Division:ATMOSPHERIC MODELING AND ANALYSIS DIVISION
Branch:ATMOSPHERIC EXPOSURE INTEGRATION BRANCH
 
Brief description of research project:Environmental models are increasingly being called upon to address the flow and transformation of pollutants between media (e.g., soil-air-water) and to connect fate/transport models to health and economic decision support tools. This project seeks to utilize expertise in computer science and environmental modeling to design, develop, optimize, and evaluate integrated models. This post-doc position will especially support research needs identified in EPA/ORD’s "Nitrogen Roadmap" and “Climate Change Roadmap.”
Geographical location of position:Research Triangle Park, NC
High priority research areas:Supports research at the nexus of the Air, Climate, and Energy (ACE), Safe and Sustainable Water (SSW), and Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) research programs.
Scientific project area:Fate and transport multimedia modeling of pollutants
Educational requirements:Ph.D. in Physical Sciences, Hydrology, Engineering, Computer Science or a related discipline
Specialized training and/or experience preferred:Expertise in computer science (Fortran programming preferred) and environmental modeling. Skill in analyzing satellite-based remote sensing data. GIS expertise is preferable.
Projected duration of appointment:3 years
Paid relocation to EPA work location:Yes
Application Period Open Date:May 04, 2015
Application Period Close Date:Jun 08, 2015
