University of Wyoming: Ph.D. assistantships in Hydrology/Geophysics
Two 3-year Ph.D. assistantships in hydrology/geophysics are available at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. The students will combine hydrological and geophysical field observations with numerical modeling to study snowmelt-driven streamflow generation at the hillslope and small-watershed scales as part of an NSF-funded project titled “Subsurface Structure and Flow Regime for Rocky Mountain Hillslopes with Different Geologies.” Applicants with a background in hydrology, geology, geophysics, civil engineering, or related fields are encouraged to apply. The intended starting date is September 2018 or January 2019. A stipend for the 9-month academic year, an additional summer stipend, tuition and fee reduction, and health insurance are provided. To apply, email a statement of research interest, resume, GPA and GRE scores, and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. For more information, contact Thijs Kelleners, professor of soil physics, Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, at 1-307-766-4279, or Andrew Parsekian, assistant professor of hydrogeophysics, Department of Geology and Geophysics, at 1-307-223-1197.
