Associate professor in hydrogeology

Associate professor in hydrogeology

Work tasks/research field:

We seek a candidate who will develop and maintain a vigorous, externally funded research program in the field of hydrogeology. The successful applicant is expected to explore the subsurface and surface distribution and movement of water in rock and soil to clarify interactions between water, climate, terrestrial and/or marine landscapes, and human systems.

We seek an outstanding scientist with experience in fundamental earth science questions across a range of temporal and spatial scales, such as linkages between the hydrologic cycle, erosion and weathering; terrestrial water supply resilience in a changing environment; or storage, transport, or remediation of environmental contaminants. Candidates with demonstrated expertise/track record in hydrogeological groundwater modeling and practical field-based research relating to subsurface fluid flow, subsurface aquifer characterization and contaminant/hydro-geochemical transport will particularly complement existing expertise at the department.

The Department expects that the successful candidate will be actively engaged in initiation of national and international project activities. Candidates whose research vision demonstrates clear potential to collaborate with, and add synergistically to, the existing department staff and research directions will be preferred.

In compliance with the university’s general regulations the associate professor is required to undertake teaching and related examination work, supervise Master/PhD students and present own research results at conferences and in international journals as part of his/her professional duties.
