We seek candidates whose convergent research will generate data-driven, collaborative, sustainable, and holistic solutions to water quantity, quality, and management problems in the face of growing population, aging infrastructure, changing climate, and changing societal values. These are academic-year (9 month) appointments with an anticipated start date of August 2020. We seek candidates who can significantly contribute to scholarship and teaching in the broad topical areas of water resources engineering, environmental engineering, and/or hydraulic engineering. Successful candidates must articulate a vision for and show how their research and teaching in one or more of the areas below will: 1) yield data-driven, collaborative, sustainable, and holistic solutions; 2) leverage existing strengths throughout USU in hydrology, hydraulics, hydro informatics, water resources management, irrigation, water quality, and environmental engineering; and 3) improve CEE and USU capabilities to solve interdisciplinary water problems now and in the future. Areas of work may include: Development of a new generation of hydrologic models that integrate biological, chemical, and physical processes across natural, built, and agricultural landscapes. Ground and surface water hydrologic research focused on quantity, quality, and conjunctive management. This may include storm water management, wastewater reuse, and fate of environmental toxins and emerging contaminants. Development of data and information systems that advance data-intensive approaches to solving water problems, including data science and machine learning applications in water resources management, smart infrastructure, and sensing systems. Quantifying and forecasting water usage in food, energy, transportation, and other systems that consider changes in population, land use, and societal values. Water-environment sustainability, including current and future impacts to water infrastructure due to changing climate; infrastructure hydraulic monitoring, risk analyses, failure modes, rehabilitation, and design; urbanization; and data science of hydraulic infrastructure. Societal risk and hazard mitigation of water systems, including natural and man-made risks, hazards, and disasters with a focus on sustainable water-environment development strategies and community livability. Managing hydropower, irrigation, water rights, or water supply in the Intermountain West. To promote transdisciplinary and convergent research, we encourage team applications from groups of up to three candidates, which may include dual career partners.
