TWRI seeks two urban water research scientists

The Texas A&M AgriLife Center at Dallas has two new positions open for research scientists with experience in urban water topics. These positions would pursue the center’s goals of improving urban water security and sustainability, and water conservation across the Dallas-Fort Worth region.

Both positions are for research scientists for the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI), part of Texas A&M AgriLife Research, at the AgriLife Center in Dallas. The positions both call for applicants who hold Ph.D.s in appropriate fields.

One position focuses on urban hydrology, storm water management and hydrological modeling. It will involve research on water and stormwater management in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Applicants should have their Ph.D. in fields related to civil engineering, environmental engineering, physical geography or hydrology and be well-positioned to work on interdisciplinary teams.

The other position focuses on urban water sustainability efforts, including issues like ecosystem services, blue-green infrastructure, water reuse, stormwater management, water governance and water conservation in urban environments. Applicants should have their Ph.D. in fields such as geography, sustainability science, urban planning, natural resources management or an allied environmental social science discipline.

Applicants will ideally have experience in the development of research funding proposals and be able to work in interdisciplinary collaborations on the science-policy interface.

Applicants are required to include a cover letter, resume and contact information for three professional references, including at least one previous supervisor, in their application.

For questions or clarifications, contact either John Tracy, Ph.D., TWRI director, or Wendy Jepson, Ph.D., TWRI associate director.
