Postdoc Position: Water Security in Cities
This is a position at Tecnológico de Monterrey as part of the research project "Water security in cities of northern Mexico: a systemic approach to water management under extreme climate conditions" at the Water Center for Latin America and the Caribbean, in order to conduct high-level research and technological development.
The Water Center for Latin America and the Caribbean (WCLAC), a joint initiative of Tecnológico de Monterrey, FEMSA Foundation and the Inter-American Development Bank, is located in Monterrey, Mexico. Its mission is to contribute to the sustainability of water use in Latin America and the Caribbean by conducting research, innovation, knowledge transfer, training, and decision support for the public and private sector. The thematic focus areas are water resources management, water quality and treatment, environmental geoprocesses, and water-energy-food nexus. Currently, WCLAC has eight principle investigators with different disciplines, a dozen of staff members and ten graduate students.
Under the direction of the leader of the Water Science and Technology group (WS&T), the successful candidate will serve as a Post Doctoral Scholar to work on the 3-year research project "Water security in cities of northern Mexico: a systemic approach to water management under extreme climate conditions", funded by the Mexican National Councel of Science and Technology (CONACyT). The position involves programming and executing technical and written aspects of project deliverables. Under the direction of the principal investigator, the position will require independent engineering judgment to apply engineering theory, perform research tasks, collaborate with three partner universities and students, and develop written technical reports and journal articles. The candidate will be capable to build or analyze hydrological, hydraulic and groundwater models, perform basic to moderate data processing, analysis and use of engineering concepts and calculations to execute moderately complex engineering assignments.
