An exciting multi-disciplinary project is being advertised to examine the iconic Thirlmere Lakes National Park, south west of Sydney (Australia). The lakes have experienced periods of rapid drying and the NSW’s Office of Environment and Heritage has provided funding to investigate the hydrological functioning of the lake system (more details available at: http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/water/thirlmere-lakes-water-data.htm).
The successful candidate will be joining a larger research team investigating hydrogeology, groundwater dynamics and hydrochemistry. The position will focus on surface and shallow groundwater research to develop evidence based hydrologic water budgets over various timescales (historic, present and under climate change). The position also has a 50% teaching support role, which may include tutoring, marking and preparing and/or delivering workshops.
Applications close November 1st
This surface water hydrology position is one of three who will be working on Thirlmere Lakes. The other roles are in Hydrogeology (led by Wendy Timms) and Groundwater (led by Martin Andersen). The position is supported by OEH Science working with ANSTO.
