We are recruiting graduate (MS or PhD) students interested in hydrology and environmental geochemistry to join the Department of Geoscience at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, starting in Fall 2024!
Students will work with either Dr. Hannes Bauser or Dr. Zach Perzan. Possible research topics include:
- Predicting water quality changes in the Colorado River Basin through modeling and machine learning
- Upscaling heterogeneous evaporation fluxes in arid lands
- Investigating controls on managed aquifer recharge using geophysical data, machine learning and hydrologic models
- Monitoring floodplain biogeochemistry using novel in situ sensors
- Modeling water quality in arid watersheds
For more details, please see https://bauser.faculty.unlv.edu and https://zperzan.github.io
Students with a background in geoscience, chemistry, engineering or other related fields are encouraged to apply. Previous coding or research experience is a strong plus, but not a strict requirement. Please email both Hannes Bauser (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Zach Perzan (email@example.com) with your CV and some information on your research interests. Be sure to reach out well before the application deadline (February 1, 2024) so that we can see if it would be a good fit.
Successful applicants will join the Department of Geoscience at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas — one of the top Geoscience programs in the West. In addition, Las Vegas is an affordable city with a ton to do, ranging from mountain biking and rock climbing to music festivals and a great food scene. In fact, Vegas has better access to more national parks than any other city in the U.S.! More information about the UNLV graduate program in Geoscience can be found here.
