Postdoc – PNNL, Richland, Washington

Representing Hydrological Processes in Earth System Models at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to work on projects related to improving representations of hydrological processes in Earth System Models. The selected candidate will work with a team of land surface and climate modelers:

  1. combining observations and models to improve understanding of hydrological processes, particularly those relevant to the tropical forest ecosystem, and their interactions with vegetation and nutrients,
  2. comparing different modeling approaches and improving parameterizations of hydrological processes for Earth System Models, and
  3. synthesizing measurement data for use in analysis and model evaluation. The position is for two years and renewable contingent upon performance.

A Ph.D. in Hydrology, Geoscience, Atmospheric Science, or related subjects is required. Candidates with experience in analysis and modeling of hydrological, vegetation, and biogeochemical processes and familiarity with high performance computing, GIS, and statistical analysis are preferred. Applications need to include:

  • Cover letter describing the applicant’s research experience and interests.
  • Curriculum vitae with a list of publications in refereed journals.
  • Names and addresses of three references.

Interested candidates can obtain additional information from L. Ruby Leung (
