Employment and Student Opportunities

Dr. Ebrahim Ahmadisharaf is recruiting multiple postdocs to join his research group in the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department at Florida State University (FSU) beginning as early as September 2022. The postdocs will be supported for 18 months, with the possibility of extension depending on funding availability. Benefits (like family health insurance) will be provided in addition to a competitive salary.


His group currently has multiple research projects funded by National Science Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency and Florida Department of Environmental Protection on the broad area of water resources and hydrology. The topics include predicting compounding floods, climate change and sea level rise impacts, surface water pollution and harmful algae bloom (HAB). While the postdocs will primarily focus on modeling compounding floods in coastal areas, involvement in other projects may be expected on a need basis. The selected candidate will present the findings in peer-reviewed articles and conferences. It is also expected that the postdocs contribute to student mentoring and assist in writing research grants.


  • Holding a doctoral degree in engineering (civil, agricultural, water resources or environmental), sciences (environmental, geographical or earth) or any closely related field
  • Understanding of physical processes related to compounding floods in coupled inland-coastal systems under climate change and sea level rise
  • Computer programming (R, MATLAB or Python), hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling as well as stochastic, statistical, time series and geospatial analyses
  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills
  • Independency, communication, presentation (oral and written), fast learning and the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team.


Located in the capital of Florida, Tallahassee, FSU is classified by Carnegie as an R1 rank (Doctoral Universities — Highest Research Activity). The CEE Department is home to the Resilient Infrastructure and Disaster Response (RIDER) Center, an interdisciplinary research center with several labs and facilities related to water resources, environment, construction and transportation. Tallahassee is also located within a short drive to multiple national parks and beaches, providing several opportunities for outdoor activities.

IF INTERESTED… Highly motivated applicants should contact Dr. Ebrahim Ahmadisharaf (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) directly with their CV, a list of three references, and a brief statement describing how their interests can contribute to the research topics.
