  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Energy, Water, Sustainability Research Associate III
    Full details Position Summary
    The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CIVE) in collaboration with the Center for Energy Water Sustainability (CEWS) at Colorado State University, is seeking a Research Associate III to lead and contribute to several energy, water and sustainability research projects.  CSU is a land-grant institution with a strong commitment to research and education that impact society and address global problems.
  • Postdoctoral Fellow-Community-enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Costs
    Full details Position Summary
    The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to develop models to assess scenarios of green and gray infrastructure based on hydrologic performance, lifecyle cost and co-benefits. Specifically, the project seeks to develop methods for exploring performance and benefits of green infrastructure practices. 
    The selected individual will work with Dr. Sharvelle and Dr. Arabi at CSU to develop the model engine for the Community-enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Costs (CLASIC) tool. The CLASIC tool will serve as a screening tool utilizing a lifecycle cost framework to support stormwater infrastructure decisions on extent and combinations of green infrastructure, hybrid green-gray systems and gray infrastructure practices.
  • Postdoctoral Fellow-USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS)
    Full details Position Summary
    The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in hydrology and ecosystems modeling, with a focus on the assessment of agricultural conservation practices in irrigated watersheds. Specifically, the project seeks to: i) improve integrative assessment of water quality effects and ecosystem services from agricultural practices at the watershed scale; and ii) develop methods for exploring effective point source and nonpoint source nutrient trading strategies. 
    The selected individual will work with Dr. Arabi at CSU and Dr. Green at the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Water Management and Systems Research Unit. The incumbent will be housed at ARS working across teams to test and apply the distributed watershed models such as the Agricultural Ecosystems Services (AgES) model and other watershed modeling tools developed by the project team at CSU and ARS Water Management and Systems Research Unit, within the Center for Agricultural Resources Research.
    
    The incumbent will communicate and work with team members to: 
    1)	Develop new science modules for assessment of agricultural conservation practices in irrigated agroecosystems. 
    2)	Integrate new modules into a distributed routing framework within AgES, or by sharing components.
    3)	Develop and demonstrate methods for point source – nonpoint source nutrient trading, including specific methods for quantification of trading ratios under hydrologic uncertainty. 
    4)	Develop and demonstrate system-level criteria for assessment of water quality effects and ecosystem services from agricultural practices.
    5)	Develop and demonstrate techniques for prioritization of locations and types of agricultural conservations practices (individually or in combination) using multi criteria decision analysis and optimization techniques. 
    6)	Work closely with team scientists to prepare findings for publication in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at meetings and/or stakeholder groups.
    The current position can leverage modeling tools, web services, data, stakeholder relationships, and institutional knowledge created through this complementary work.
