A graduate assistantship is available in URBAN ECOHYDROLOGY at Washington State University in Vancouver, for a student interested in a PhD (already with MS) or an MS-PhD dual degree. Exceptional candidates wishing MS only will also be considered.

The core of this research is physical hydrology. The research will address, broadly, the cycling of water through urban vegetation, urban soil moisture, urban streams and riparian zones, surface-subsurface water interactions, and the heterogeneous urban ecohydrological environment generally. The qualified candidate is expected to develop during the beginning of their graduate studies a specific physical hydrology thesis/dissertation research topic based on their own interests within in this general area, in cooperation with supervisor Dr. Kevan Moffett. Required qualifications include: strong physical science and mathematics or engineering background, familiarity with physical hydrology, strong writing and communication skills, research experience, strong grades and GRE scores. Desired (but not required) qualifications include: numerical modeling experience, programming experience, GIS skills, independent field research experience, some exposure to plant biology and/or aquatic biogeochemistry and/or soil physics and/or remote sensing analysis. The position will begin in August 2017 and be in Environmental Sciences (if MS) or Environmental Science and Natural resources (PhD) at Washington State University, with study fully on the Vancouver campus. Funding of graduate tuition, full-time stipend, plus benefits is guaranteed for sufficient time to complete the degree. Vancouver, WA is a fantastic city in southwestern Washington State, USA, between the coast and the Cascades Mountains and just across the Columbia River from vibrant Portland, Oregon.

Inquire immediately with and attach CV including GPA and GRE scores; applications accepted on a rolling basis, but position closing soon. Applicants should already be able to work in the US.
