  • Post-Doctoral Scholar: Hydrologic Connectivity and Watershed Resilience
    Full details Position Summary
    River-floodplain systems connect headwaters and headwater-dependent social-ecological systems and provide numerous important ecological services. These systems are increasingly being fragmented due to land and hydrologic alterations. Loss of connectivity, in turn, affects floodplain function, ecosystem services, and community resilience. New large-scale datasets representing human impacts to rivers and floodplains (e.g., see https://doi.org/10.1038/s41597-022-01566-1) and high-resolution remotely sensed data provide opportunities to evaluate loss of river-floodplain connectivity, reductions in river and floodplain process, and subsequent loss of resiliency throughout river corridors. This position will support research to understand:
    1. Where human stressors are most concentrated in river-floodplain systems.
    2. the degree to which these stressors cause loss of river-floodplain connectivity, trajectories of altered floodplain processes, and loss of natural resiliency to disturbances.
    3. Spatial alignment of community preferences for enhancing ecosystem services, with a particular emphasis on river systems throughout the Intermountain West.
    This position will support a post-doctoral scholar in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University as part of the Transformation Network (TN) and National Science Foundation award 2115169. The TN aims to build resilient communities and ecosystems throughout the Intermountain Western United States through partnerships between eight Western U.S. universities and over 50 organizations representing Tribal partners, governmental and non-governmental organizations, public utilities, conservation districts, irrigation districts, and municipalities. This position will provide professional development opportunities associated with the TN project, such as linkages with a wide network of junior and senior scientists and the chance to engage in transdisciplinary activities.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow - Indoor Environment
    Full details Position Summary
    The value of incorporating user feedback in the design of technological objects or systems is widely acknowledged. This feedback is typically gathered in situations designed by an engineer or other technologist. These situations may contain subtle cues about preferred choices or socially acceptable desires. Power differentials between the situation designer and the user may also lead to subconscious filtering.

    The Mechanical Engineering Department at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to explore how personal awareness, development of self-efficacy, and discussion of societal network might lessen some of these limitations, lead to richer user feedback early in the technological or programmatic design phase, and potentially alter the ultimate outcome of technological adoption. The fellow / scholar should have experience in both quantitative and qualitative research methods, as well as a keen awareness of ethical behavior in the context of physical and social interventions.

    Activities will include, but are not limited to, observation and evaluation of interventions related to household energy; review and amalgamation of qualitative survey instruments; and interpretation of physical or quantitative measurements regarding change. The scholar would join a multidisciplinary team (mechanical engineering, public health, psychology) and work with both academic researchers and non-governmental organizations. The scholar would contribute to academic literature and develop a framework and best practices for integrating development in both resource and personal spheres.

    Backgrounds that are potentially relevant include scholarship in psychology, anthropology, or human factors within engineering, although demonstrated versatility in methods is more important than the individual’s stated degree. Ability to investigate and assimilate literature in unfamiliar disciplines is essential. Applicants should have excellent written and oral communication skills, ability to work both independently and within a fast-paced multidisciplinary research environment, and comfort with conversing with academicians, community members, workforce, and policy makers. This is a one-year appointment with the option to continue for a total of three years based on performance.
