We invite applications for a Ph.D. student to fill a research assistantship in the Graduate Program of Hydrologic Sciences at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI). The successful applicant will be part of a multi-disciplinary team that includes experts in snow physics, remote sensing, near-surface processes, and hydrologic modelling. He/she will take the lead in analysis and interpretation of multiple existing sets of hyperspectral and LiDAR dataset for the highly instrumented Sagehen Creek watershed in the Sierra Nevada (http://sagehen.ucnrs.org <http://sagehen.ucnrs.org/>). Ground-based measurements include soil moisture, water chemistry, snow properties, sap flow, and stream discharge, as well as information on the land-surface energy balance. The student will use this data to answer pressing questions in mountain hydrology developed with his/her faculty advisors.
Financial support includes a monthly stipend, travel to scientific meetings, field and laboratory analyses, partial tuition and health insurance. Applicants should have an undergraduate or graduate degree in hydrologic science, ecohydrology, remote sensing, environmental engineering, or a related field. The ideal candidate should have a strong quantitative background and interest in hydrologic modelling and interpretation of remote sensing data. Experience using Python or R for analysis of large data sets is particularly welcomed.
For questions and details on the position, please contact Adrian Harpold (aharpold at cabnr.unr.edu <mailto:aharpold at cabnr.unr.edu>; https://naes.unr.edu/harpold/ <https://naes.unr.edu/harpold/>) or Rina Schumer (rina at dri.edu <mailto:rina at dri.edu>).
