Job Type: PhD Research Assistantship (towards a PhD degree in Water Resources)
Project: TEAROOM (Tracer-EnABled hydRolOgic Modeling)
Research Focus:

  • Utilizing tracer data for improving hydrologic models
  • Exploring the significance of tree ‘water age’ for forest resilience

Description:
The TEAROOM project seeks a dedicated PhD researcher to explore cutting-edge methodologies for incorporating site-level tracer data into hydrologic models. You are enthusiastic about the outdoors, conducting fieldwork to collect and analyze tracer data from various sites. You are excited and willing to learn about developing, calibrating, and validating hydrologic models using tracer data, among others.

 

Qualifications:
You should hold a BS or MS in an engineering field, environmental, or geoscience-related discipline. We are looking for dedicated, highly-independent, and team-oriented candidates with excellent verbal and written communication skills, proficiency in computer programming (Python, MATLAB, R), applied statistics and/or experience in data analysis and modeling. You must be fluent in English (oral and written).

Position: MS Research Assistantship (towards a MS degree in Environmental Hydrology)
Project: STIR WATSOL (Sourcing, Tracing, Integrating, Recording WATer and SOLutes)
Research Focus:

  • Investigating the spatial and temporal variations of water and solute sources and sinks
  • Identifying and characterizing 'hot spots' and 'hot moments' for targeted water quality interventions

Description:
The STIR WATSOL project seeks a motivated Master's student to explore the variability of water and solute sources and sinks across different spatial and temporal scales. You are enthusiastic about the outdoors, conducting fieldwork to collect and analyze tracer data from various sites. The objective of this research is to advance our understanding of how water and contaminants move within the environment under climate and land use change, through the exploration of surface and groundwater dynamics using environmental tracers, including stable water isotopes. The focus is to identify critical ‘hot spots’ and transient ‘hot moments’ within water bodies, and examine the complex dynamics that govern underlying environmental processes.
