University of Arizona CZO Post Doc Opportunity

Postdoctoral Opportunities with the Jemez – Santa Catalina Critical Zone Observatory

The University of Arizona is soliciting applications from prospective postdoctoral scientists to conduct collaborative research in the Jemez River Basin – Santa Catalina Mountains Critical Zone Observatory.

We seek applicants who have a keen interest in bridging their research across earth surface science disciplines including ecology, soil science, hydrology, geomorphology and geochemistry. Our postdoctoral scientists also work closely with teams of faculty and graduate students to build CZO community data sets. Required qualifications include a Ph.D. in one of the earth surface science fields.

Preferred qualifications include experience in combining measurement and modeling approaches to biogeochemistry, ecohydrology, or landscape evolution. We have immediate needs for individuals who can assume central CZO leadership roles in research, and assist with coordinating efforts and data streams pertaining to analytical geochemistry (water, soil, sediment, biomass), field-scale hydrogeology and associated land surface dynamics/geomorphology, and/or land-atmosphere exchange.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter of interest and a current curriculum vitae to Prof. Jon Chorover ( for consideration by the selection committee, which will include all CZO PIs and senior personnel. Please feel free to contact Jon Chorover or any member of the CZO group for further discussions.
