Department at the University of Nevada, Reno is expecting to hire a quali=
fied Ph.D. student to start in=20
Fall of 2016. Research in the lab group focuses on improving process-base=
d understanding of snow-
dominated watershed hydrology to advance resource management and model pr=
edictions.  Projects=20
typically integrate field and remote sensing observations with ecohydrolo=
gical models. The specific=20

ances over snow.

The University of Nevada is a Tier 1 research university with an excellen=
t graduate program in hydrologic=20
sciences (http://www.hydro.unr.edu/home/) that leverages resources at UNR=
 and the Desert Research=20
Institute.  Reno is close to outdoor recreation (biking, skiing, climbing=
, river sports, and more) locally=20
and nearby in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Reno also has ample city activ=
ities (its the biggest little city=20
