Postdoc, Peruvian Hydrology, Purdue

A postdoctoral research position at Purdue University's Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences working with Prof. Marty Frisbee and Prof. Lisa Welp is available at the intersection of surface hydrology and hydrogeology. Tropical glacier melt is a significant concern for society in southern Peru. The successful candidate will quantify seasonal precipitation inputs, glacier melt, irrigation runoff, and surface water-ground water interactions across scales in the Arequipa region of Peru using chemical and isotopic end-members in appropriate mixing models. Spanish language skills are highly desirable. Interviews begin immediately with start dates as early as Jan 2019.

This position is within the newly created Arequipa Nexus Institute for Food, Energy, Water, and the Environment, a collaboration between Purdue University and the Universidad Nacional de San Agustin (UNSA) in Arequipa, Peru that is investigating key environmental, land use, agroeconomic, and social challenges limiting the development of adaptive, profitable, and sustainable food-energy-water systems in southern Peru.
