Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 02 Oct 2022

The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a European Non-profit Science and Technology oriented Educational and Research Institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of Trustees. The research agenda of the CyI is pursued at its four Research Centres: The Computation-based Science and Technology Research Centre (CaSToRC), the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Centre (STARC), the Energy Environment Water Research Centre (EEWRC) and the Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre (CARE-C). Considerable cross-centre interaction is a characteristic of the Institute’s culture.

The Water Division of the Energy Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC) of the Institute invites application for a highly qualified and motivated individual to join the team as a Postdoctoral Fellow for Hydro-ecological observatories.

The Water Division is maintaining a number of hydrologic, environmental and ecosystems monitoring units and observation stations in Cyprus, including an eddy-covariance system. The Postdoctoral Fellow will contribute to the maintenance of field stations and will conduct water, soil and plant observations in the field and in the laboratory, in cooperation with researchers and graduate students of the Water Division. The successful candidate will apply hydrological and land surface models to analyze collected hydro-ecological data and model climate-change impacts, in support of ongoing international research projects.

The initial period of the appointment will be for a duration of 1 year with the possibility of renewal, depending on performance and availability of funds. An internationally competitive remuneration package will be offered, which is commensurate with the level of experience of the successful candidate.

Responsibilities/activities to be involved in:

  • Calibrate, evaluate and apply hydrological and land surface models to analyse local observations and model climate change impacts
  • Contribute to the maintenance of off-grid field hydrologic, meteorological and ecosystem sensors and data loggers
  • Field and laboratory observations and analysis of water, soil and plant variables
  • Preparation of scientific publications and conference presentations
  • Cooperation and communication with local stakeholders
