I am forwarding this on behalf of a colleague and want to share this advertisement (below) for an open position in the Terrestrial Hydrology group at NASA JPL, California Institute of Technology. Research in Snow Hydrology is one of the areas being sought under this position. Please also widely distribute.
Job Title: Scientist – Hydrologic Research and Applications aided by Earth-orbiting Satellites
Location: Pasadena, CA
How much fresh water do we have on Earth? How can we use the unusual vantage point of orbiting satellites to better understand how Earth’s fresh water stores and fluxes are evolving? How does the Earth’s water cycle influence extreme weather and climate? What links the water cycle to other components of the Earth system? Your mission—your opportunity—is to bring us closer to answering these questions! If you’re driven to discover new insights in how the Earth works, invent new tools and methods to advance science and its usage to benefit society, and inspire future generations of scientists and leaders, you’re ready for JPL!
Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. We offer a work environment unlike any other: we resolve challenges on national and international levels, address global problems such as climate change, inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.
You can learn more about Earth Science programs at JPL at the following sites: https://science.jpl.nasa.gov/EarthScience, https//earth.jpl.nasa.gov, and about JPL’s Terrestrial Hydrology Group at https://science.jpl.nasa.gov/EarthScience/TerrestrialHydrology
You will work as a full-time scientist in a dynamic team environment responsible for developing and leading a unique portfolio of scientific research and applied sciences activities in your hydrologic and remote sensing field of expertise, while collaborating with the existing expertise at JPL including its Terrestrial Hydrology group. You will contribute to maximizing the science return of current and future NASA missions, such as GRACE-FO, SMAP ECOSTRESS SWOT and NISAR, and imagining the next generation of satellites transforming the way we monitor and learn about the hydrological cycle. Furthermore, you will help formulate the strategic objectives and goals for the Terrestrial Hydrology group and its contributions to JPL and to NASA.
You will be expected to seek funding through competed solicitations, publish journal articles, broadly communicate the results of your
research, and mentor junior researchers, postdoctoral scholars and/or students.
