Research Associateship Program

The National Academy of Sciences offers graduate, postdoctoral and senior research awards on behalf of 26 U.S. federal research agencies and affiliated institutions with facilities at over 100 locations throughout the U.S. and abroad. 

We are actively seeking highly qualified candidates including recent doctoral recipients and senior researchers. Applications are accepted during 4 annual review cycles (with deadlines of February 1, May 1, August 1, November 1).

hydrologic modeling and data assimilation

We have an opening for a hydrologic modeling and data assimilation Post-Doctoral Fellow. The research will involve integrating real-time field and satellite blended products into the PRMS hydrologic model used by PG&E, and update the model to use the detailed real-time data and determine the financial benefit of using the improved field data.  The work will be completed working with a hydrologic modeler at PG&E as well as researchers at UC Berkeley and Merced. The scholar will prepare manuscripts and reports based on the research.
