For the DB-4 Level: Specialized Experience: receiving intensive training and performing work in support of research requiring little or no experience; the orienting of employees on administrative policies, regulations, technical programs, research techniques, and operating procedures; and ascertaining employee interests and aptitudes for more responsible assignments. More difficult assignments contribute to the productive output of the research unit including the assignment of projects consisting of scientific investigations or limited scope with readily definable objectives which require fairly conventional techniques; projects may be studies in new areas where objectives are clear-cut and use existing theory; and projects are expected to result in publishable additions to scientific knowledge or new or improved methods or techniques. Supervision may range from being provided detailed instruction and guidance and review of work, to situations where general instruction as to scope and objectives of the study is provided; incumbent may suggest study parameters; and the incumbent will prepare reports and papers to include supporting information, with the work being reviewed for adequacy of method, completeness, and results.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture–Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) is seeking to fill a one-year appointment with a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sustainable Groundwater-Irrigated Agroecosystems by August 31, 2021. The opportunity is located at the National Sedimentation Laboratory in the historic town of Oxford located in the wooded hills of north Mississippi. Oxford has a small college-town atmosphere with excellent public schools, performing arts, fine restaurants, and bookstores. The urban attractions of Memphis, Tennessee, are 70 miles to the north.
The research will address the feasibility of artificial recharge of the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVAA) in the Delta region of Mississippi through a pilot project combining riverbank filtration and aquifer storage to capture surface water for direct injection into the aquifer. Current and planned water conservation and irrigation best management practices are projected to not fully alleviate the long-term depletion of groundwater in the region. Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) has been identified as the most likely technology to reduce or potentially reverse groundwater depletion. Construction of the facility by USDA-ARS is complete and full operation began April 2021.
Under the guidance of DR. ANDREW O’REILLY, the participant will collaborate with USDA-ARS, U.S. Geological Survey, and the University of Mississippi research scientists and participate in all phases of field-based data collection, operation, and evaluation of the pilot project. This is an opportunity to get involved on the ground floor of development of cutting-edge, scientific technology and innovative MAR solutions to support an agriculture industry in the Delta that produces over $1.5 billion in agricultural commodities annually while also sustaining the region’s agroecosystems and natural resources.
The opportunity details can be found here:
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis, and the posting may close before the deadline of August 31, 2021.

Colorado State University – Hydrogeologist
Colorado State University Department of Geosciences is looking to hire a Hydrogeology Specialist at the Research Associate II level. This position will provide support to the Water Resources Division (WRD) of the National Park Service (NPS) in Fort Collins, CO. In cooperation with WRD, this position will improve NPS’s understanding of the status and sustainability of park groundwater resources primarily by developing a database that characterizes NPS groundwater resources. The overall groundwater database will involve compiling, analyzing, interpreting, and/or presenting existing spatial, construction, hydrogeologic, water quality, water use, and water right information associated with NPSwells and springs throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Development of this database will also involve identifying and satisfying significant data gaps through field- and office-based actions such as communicating with park staff, reviewing NPS records and state and federal databases, performing camera surveys to evaluate well conditions, measuring groundwater levels and water quality, conducting pumping and recovery tests (e.g. step-drawdown and constant-rate tests), and analyzing and interpreting pumping and recovery test data to estimate aquifer parameters and develop sustainable pumping schedules.
On an as-needed basis, this position may also provide hydrogeologic expertise in support of investigations and technical assistance requests submitted by park units throughout the United States. Generally, such technical assistance requires collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of hydrogeologic information and data. More specifically, this secondary responsibility may involve various office- and field-based tasks such as reviewing literature, performing site reconnaissance, creating maps, conducting geophysical surveys, installing and maintaining data-logging pressure transducers and water quality meters, and developing technical reports or presentations.
The posted deadline for applications is February 15, 2021 but applications after that deadline can still be considered. The preferred start date in March 15 2021 and the position is funded until September 30, 2021. If funding becomes available, the term of this position may be extended.
