Modeling and Monitoring Position

 https://www.ugajobsearch.com/postings/222002

The College of Engineering wishes to appoint a Post-Doctoral Scholar to work on a grant funded research project: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Engineering with Nature Initiative for a period of 1 year with additional employment dependent on the needs of the project. In this role they will be work under the direct supervision of Dr. C. Brock Woodson, Associate Professor, and Associate Director for Engineering and Natural Science, Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems, at the College of Engineering’s School of Environmental, Civil, Agricultural and Mechanical Engineering (ECAM). This invitation is for the candidate to join a multidisciplinary team of scientists at the University of Georgia who are engaged in a cooperative research project between the Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems and the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

This project is highly specialized due to the incorporation of nature-based systems. Candidates should have a PhD in hydrology, water resources engineering, coastal engineering, or related field; and are expected to have a demonstrated high level of expertise in developing monitoring techniques and tools. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate the ability and commitment to thrive in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment and the ability to conceptualize and implement high quality/high impact engineering research projects. In addition, applicants showing a demonstrated interest in working across disciplinary boundaries at the upland-aquatic interface to examine the physical responses of nature-based systems to coastal environments will be given preference. 

Education Position

 https://www.ugajobsearch.com/postings/221826

The Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems at the University of Georgia is hiring a 1 year postdoc position, with possibility of renewal, focused on science and engineering education. The individual hired will work as part of an interdisciplinary team from the University of Georgia and the United States Army Corps of Engineers – Engineer Research and Development Center (USACE-ERDC). The project is part of the Education initiative of the Network for Engineering with Nature (n-ewn.org). The postdoc will work with the broader team to train students and professionals in the theory and practice of nature-based solutions, emphasizing integrative systems thinking, interdisciplinarity, empathy, and equity to develop holistic, socially situated solutions to complex climate adaptation problems. This initiative will result in a variety of educational outcomes reaching multiple audiences and ranging in scale from transportable lectures and modules on Engineering With Nature to degree-scale curricula and internship programs. The postdoc will be responsible for coordinating and facilitating these activities with partners from diverse disciplines and sectors. 

Candidates must have a PhD in a related field (e.g., Science Education, Engineering Education, Anthropology, Geography, Ecology, Public Administration/Policy, Planning, Civil & Environmental Engineering). Experience working on interdisciplinary teams and working with novel forms of pedagogy is highly desired. Candidates should have outstanding communication skills and the ability to coordinate across large groups. Special consideration will be given to candidates with experience in informal education, professional training, curriculum development and/or outreach.

The Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems at the University of Georgia is hiring a 1 year postdoc position, with possibility of renewal. The individual hired will work as part of an interdisciplinary team from the University of Georgia, the Tribal Nations Technical Center for Excellence (TNTCX), Tribal partners, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers – Engineer Research and Development Center (USACE-ERDC). The project is funded by the Network for Engineering with Nature (https://n-ewn.org/) and is part of the People and Policies research theme. The postdoc will work with the broader team to develop and direct research related to Nature-Based Solutions and water resources planning. The objective is to co-design and implement methodologies and methods to incorporate a range of worldviews on landscapes and waterscapes into the technical, procedural, and operational aspects of water resource management and engineering planning. The position will be co-supervised by Brian Bledsoe, Director, IRIS, and Professor, College of Engineering, and Don Nelson, Professor, Department of Anthropology.

Candidates must have a PhD in a related field (e.g. Anthropology, Geography, Ecology, Public Planning, Hydrology). Experience working with Tribal Nations and on interdisciplinary teams is highly desired.
