*Subject: **Ph.D. Position in the Nevada Mountain Ecohydrology Lab*
The Nevada Mountain Ecohydrology Lab in the Natural Resources and
Department at the University of Nevada, Reno is expecting to hire a
qualified Ph.D. student to start in
Fall of 2016. Research in the lab group focuses on improving
process-based understanding of snow-
dominated watershed hydrology to advance resource management and model
typically integrate field and remote sensing observations with
ecohydrological models. The specific
research project has flexibility, but will investigate snow hydrology
and water partitioning in the Great
Basin and the larger Western U.S.
Students capable of working independently with a quantitative background
are encouraged to apply.
Training in physical hydrology, engineering, remote sensing, or
environmental science is appropriate.
Computer programming (e.g. Matlab, R, Python, etc.) and/or remote
sensing and GIS experience is
preferred. Students are also expected to be strong written and oral
communicators. Ability to install and
maintain field equipment (e.g. programming dataloggers, installing
sensors, etc.) is a benefit. Many
projects require the ability to work in remote areas and travel long
distances over snow.
The University of Nevada is a Tier 1 research university with an
excellent graduate program in hydrologic
sciences (http://www.hydro.unr.edu/home/) that leverages resources at
UNR and the Desert Research
Institute. Reno is close to outdoor recreation (biking, skiing,
climbing, river sports, and more) locally
and nearby in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Reno also has ample city
activities (its the biggest little city
for goodness sake!). Graduate student salaries are competitive and cost
of living is relatively low. More
information about the lab is available at this website
http://www.ag.unr.edu/harpold/. Please contact Dr.
Adrian Harpold (aharpold at cabnr.unr.edu <mailto:aharpold at cabnr.unr.edu>)
with questions or send a CV and short letter of interest.
