The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a European non-profit science and technology institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of Trustees. The research aims of the CyI are represented by three research centers: the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CASTORC), the Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center (STARC), and the Energy Environment Water Research Center (EEWRC). Considerable cross-center interaction is a characteristic of the Institute’s culture.
The CyI invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Hydrology and Land Management. The successful applicant will contribute to the Water Group’s research on soil erosion and hydrologic field monitoring and modelling. She/he will be responsible for the maintenance of hydrologic and environmental field monitoring stations, streamflow and sediment monitoring, as well as laboratory analysis of water and soil samples. The research will be conducted in the framework of different European research projects. The Post-Doctoral Fellow is expected to contribute to the development of proposals for external funding within the above research areas.
