Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
• conduct research on water consumption and production in river basins across Asia and Africa;
• apply geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing tools, methods and datasets in accounting for water use and productivity;
• develop new remote sensing-driven approaches for measurement of agriculture-relevant hydrological components in river basins;
• incorporate ecosystem service assessments into a water accounting framework; and
• prepare journal articles, research reports and conference papers.
You will possess:
• a PhD in hydrology, water resources management or spatial modeling;
• an in-depth understanding of basin hydrology and basin processes modeling;
• knowledge of various indicators and metrics used for monitoring the environmental condition of basins;
• experience in the derivation of water balance components and water productivity from remote sensing
• knowledge of remote-sensing driven approaches for the measurement of agriculture-relevant hydrological components at the basin scale;
• competency in the application of GIS and remote sensing techniques to hydrological problems;
• strong analytical and numerical skills;
• the ability to process large hydrological and spatial datasets;
• independent and critical scientific thought;
• a good command of both oral and written English;
• a strong publication record;
• the ability to effectively establish priorities, and plan, organize, implement and monitor work activities; and
• good interpersonal skills, and the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with people in a multicultural environment, with sensitivity and respect for diversity.
