M.S. student positions in environmental geophysics are currently available at the Department of Environmental Sciences, University of Toledo (http://www.utoledo.edu/nsm/envsciences/) under the supervision of Dr. Kennedy Doro (https://www.utoledo.edu/nsm/envsciences/faculty/doro.html). Research by the Hydro- and Environmental Geophysics Lab (UToledo HEG-Lab) employs a wide range of geophysical, hydrological and in situ technologies to characterize the earth's shallow subsurface and improve understanding of its states and processes. Immediate research project openings involve investigating subsurface hydrological controls on nutrients retention within wetlands. This will include  developing subsurface flow tracing techniques for characterizing flow pathways within Geographically Isolated Wetlands (GIWs) and  assessing the impact of preferential flow paths and intensity on nutrient retention using an integrated surface-groundwater flow and transport model with stochastic realizations of subsurface heterogeneity.
Information about the graduate program can be found at http://www.utoledo.edu/nsm/envsciences/grad/ and about funding at http://www.utoledo.edu/nsm/envsciences/grad/financial.html.
Expected start date is Spring (January) 2022 while application deadline is October 15, 2021. Further information about these positions can be obtained from Dr. Kennedy Doro (firstname.lastname@example.org). Inclusion of a letter of interest and CV will help mediate our conversation.
Interested candidates should have at least an undergraduate degree in geology, geophysics, physics, hydrogeology, environmental/civil engineering or a related area and good analytical/quantitative, computational and writing skills. Students with the ability and desire to undertake intensive field work are encouraged to apply.
