Geochemical tracers of catchment processes (commencing early 2017)

PhD projects are available in the application of environmental isotopes and
major ions together with streamflow data and groundwater elevations to
understand the location and fluxes of groundwater to rivers, the residence
time of water in river catchments, and whether different stores of water
are activated under different flow conditions. These projects emphasise
integration of geochemical and physical data to achieve an understanding of
key processes that impact the water balance and water quality in rivers.
Field areas are mainly in Victoria (southeast Australia) and include a
variety of river types (ephemeral and perennial, headwater catchments,
regulated and unregulated).

Entrance requirements are a Masters or Honours degree that includes a
significant research project component (at least 50% of the final year) and
for these projects experience in the fields of isotope geochemistry or
hydrogeochemistry is highly desirable.

Monash scholarships that cover both living expenses and fees are open to
both Australian and overseas students. These are competitive and successful
applicants require the equivalent of Australian First Class Honours or
Research MSc qualifications; additional relevant research experience and/or
research publications in international journals are advantageous.

Further information can be found at http://www.monash.edu/
graduate-research/future-students. The application deadline is October 31st
2016 for PhD projects commencing in early 2017.

Applicants for whom English is not their first language, or who have not
undertaken their degree studies with English as the language of
instruction, must also attain a satisfactory English language test score
(TOEFL or IELTS). Please contact ian.cartwright at monash.edu for more details
