Classification: Academic Level B or Level C
Term: Tenure Track (Level B) or Continuing (Level C)

The IWF and the Research School of Earth Sciences seek an outstanding advanced early- or mid-career researcher with a demonstrable track record of incorporating observational data into numerical models that represent and track the transport of water in the Earth system. The successful candidate will engage in research and teaching, and have a strong background in data inversion and/or data assimilation (e.g. Kalman filtering), along with interest in, and a general understanding of, how ecosystems and other aspects of the climate system interact with the hydrosphere. There will be a future need to adapt existing models and practices to exploit new remote sensing data, as future missions become operational (e.g. SWOT). Our ideal candidate will work closely with other geodesists and hydrologists in the IWF to develop efficient processes for assimilating remotely sensed estimates of total water storage, soil moisture and surface water levels, and be keen to contribute to the broader, interdisciplinary goals.
