WRRC Seeks Two Post-doctoral Research Associates
The University of Arizona (UA) Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) will be hiring two post-doctoral research associates into 24-month positions beginning in early 2022. These opportunities both provide a foundation for building a research portfolio and contributing to greater awareness and understanding of water resources in Arizona and the West. Both positions require that the candidate hold a PhD in a field with relevance to the position description at the time of hiring.
A position with the Water RAPIDS (Research and Planning Innovations for Dryland Systems) program will involve both independent and collaborative research, including stakeholder engagement, to advance understanding of water resources topics in Arizona, the Colorado River basin, and the wider region. Candidates should have advanced knowledge of geospatial platforms and analytical techniques and experience applying spatial concepts in their research. Experience with science translation, stakeholder processes, and policy analysis are also required. Click the link below for position description and application instructions.
This position will contribute to multiple WRRC programs, particularly Diversifying Voices in Water Resources (DViWR) and activities related to the WRRC’s outreach to, and engagement in, Arizona’s rural and Tribal communities. Working independently and collaboratively, the successful candidate will plan and carry out research supporting outreach that increases awareness and literacy on water resources issues and builds capacity, especially among disadvantaged groups. Candidates should have advanced knowledge and experience in multidisciplinary research, community engagement, science translation, and water resources policy and decision-making processes.

Both positions will be located at the UA-WRRC,
