Postdoctoral Researcher in Fractured Rock Hydrogeology
The CEAZA is a public research institute dedicated to the development of science and technology in the arid and semi-arid zones of Northern-Central Chile. The successful candidate will join the Geosciences Group, which is currently conducting several projects on groundwater resources and high-mountain hydrology.
Location: La Serena, Chile
The Centre for Advanced Studies in Arid Zones (CEAZA), located in La Serena, Chile, is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in fractured rock hydrogeology.
The postdoctoral researcher will be in charge of developing knowledge and tools to assess groundwater resources in fractured rock aquifers in the Andean context. Currently little developed in Chile, groundwater resources occurring in fractured rocks may provide a well-needed additional source of water in a country impacted by water scarcity. Specific objectives are:
A major focus will be given to the replicability of the proposed methods to other areas of the Andes. The final objective is to deliver a generic methodology for characterizing and managing fractured rock aquifers in Chile. Additionally, the postdoctoral researcher will be expected to contribute to writing project reports and to communicate the scientific results to the research community (through publication in peer-reviewed journals and conferences) and local stakeholders.
