*Graduate Research Assistantship in Ecohydrology, Department of Natural
Resources and Environmental Management, University of Hawaii, Manoa*

A M.S. graduate assistantship in Ecohydrology and Environment Science in
the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management at
University of Hawaii, Manoa may be available Fall 2016, contingent upon
funding. The applicant will be expected to fulfill all Department and
University requirements for a graduate degree in a timely manner, conduct
original applied research related to Ecohydrology and its application to
freshwater ecosystem and natural resources management, participate in
Department and University activities, working with project collaborators
and its stakeholders, and be an active lab member.

*Position Description: *This research addresses the needs for the distinct
hydrologic and watershed conditions in Hawaii islands and empirically
tested the hydrologic theories that incorporates climatic and anthropogenic
characteristics, with a broader aim to link “ridge to reef” and to
understand freshwater influences to Hawaii coastal systems. Toward that
end, this project examines the flow processes and establish empirical
models to describe the stream flow and sediment transport in Hawaii streams
and watersheds. This research seeks to improve the hydrologic models to
describe water availability in facing climate change, and its management
implication to freshwater ecosystem, sustainable agriculture, and sediment
input in coastal area of Hawaii. The research objectives are to:

1)     identify current status of surface hydrology in Hawaii watersheds
and understand its impact on freshwater ecosystem and natural resources

2)     survey and compile data to establish models for Hawaiian streams to
link with ecosystems and agriculture

*Qualifications and Application Instructions: *Competitive applicants will
be highly motivated and independent, have some experience with hydrology ,
environmental science, or environmental management, GIS and statistical
background is a plus, willing to work collaboratively and communicate
projects with stakeholders, be willing to engage with the Department and
the University. Preference will be given to applicants with hydrology and
aquatic ecology experience and who have published. Interested individuals
should email Dr. Yin-Phan Tsang as soon as possible. Please provide the
following materials: 1) cover letter describing general research interests
and specific experiences; 2) brief statement of professionals goals; 3)
resume; 4) transcripts (unofficial ok); and 6) list of two references with
contact information (email, phone, address); and 6) GRE and TOEFL scores,
if available.

*The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) *was founded in 1907 as the
College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, renamed the College of Hawai'i,
the institution in 1912, during which the first graduation conferred four
degrees. In 1920, the institution became the University of Hawai'i. Located
in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Asia and the Americas, the Hawaiian
Islands form a bridge between East and West. Many graduate programs at UHM
have benefited from Hawai'i's unique geographical location and the
advantages that it provides. The university offers internationally renowned
programs in Asian theatre, astronomy, developmental and reproductive
biology, international business, marine biology, ocean and earth sciences
and technology, second language studies, travel industry management, and
tropical agriculture. The *Natural Resources and Environmental Management
department* *(NREM)* at UHM emphasizes the science and management of
natural resources and their links to environmental quality. NREM provide
students with scientific knowledge of the physical, chemical, biological,
economic, social, and policy elements of natural resources management. This
allows them to understand the principles that underpin productive,
sustainable land use, and enhanced environmental quality.
