The Delta Independent Science Board (Delta ISB) and California Sea Grant (CASG) are seeking two postdoctoral scholars to support the Delta ISB with its legislative mandate to provide oversight of the scientific research, monitoring, and assessment programs that support adaptive management of Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, which is part of the largest estuarine ecosystem on the west coast of North America and is the hub of California’s extensive water supply system.

The Delta ISB reviews “science programs” by topical or thematic areas. Reviews normally assess the state of the science topic in general and across the Delta and make recommendations to improve the science, fill gaps, integrate or explore new ideas. A fundamental responsibility of the postdoctoral scholars will be to work with the Delta ISB on these major reviews once potential topics are identified.

Potential topics include:

  • Harmful algal blooms
  • Rood webs
  • Restoration
  • Climate
  • Subsidence reversal
  • Ecosystem forecasting

The postdoctoral researchers will explore what science and syntheses have been done on the topic in the Delta and other regions, and the latest scientific approaches. 

Application Deadline: Applications will be reviewed starting on November 29, 2021, and will remain open until filled.
