*Subject: **Ph.D. Position in the Nevada Mountain Ecohydrology Lab*

The Nevada Mountain Ecohydrology Lab in the Natural Resources and 
Environmental Science
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 
predictions.  Projects
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.
