NSF EPSCoR Project: Energize NM EPSCoR modeling module
NSF Coupled Human and Natural Systems: Acequia Water Systems Linking Culture and Nature: Integrated Analysis of Community Resilience to Climate and Land-Use Changes. NSF Award #1010516
Develop a system dynamics decision support system, the Rio Grande Water and Society Simulation Model (RGWSSIM) that will allow simulations of changes in human and natural systems linked by acequia communities (traditional Spanish community managed irrigation systems). RGWSSIM will operate on a laptop computer and be accessible to community users. Scenarios will consider climate and economic changes as well as stakeholder-defined impacts such as climate and land use on river/riparian function, tradeoffs among competing agricultural practices, and associated economic/environmental consequences of alternative resource management strategies.
Interested applicants should send a CV, references, and cover letter to Dr. Alexander “Sam” Fernald via email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or Dr. Vincent Tidwell (email@example.com
). Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled, with a start date to be determined.
