Undergraduate, Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Opportunities:

Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV at Arizona State University and new site for research group with state-of-the-art facilities, May 2012.

Our group seeks new students and professionals with interests in watershed hydrology, ecohydrology and hydrometeorology, especially through the combination of different methodological approaches. Potential topic areas can include efforts within our current projects or new collaborative efforts. We typically have opportunities for Master of Science, MS, or Doctor of Philosophy, PhD students. At the postdoctoral level, we have opportunities through:

  1. SESE Exploration Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
  2. Decision Center for a Desert City

Opportunities for joining us also include undergraduate research through the Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative, CAP-LTER and Jornada-LTER Research Program and NASA Space Grant Program, among others. Applicants are also eligible for various ASU fellowships, including Dean's Fellowships, Graduate College Block Grants, and Science Foundation Arizona Fellowships. We also invite international applicants from the Fulbright Program and similar activities to consider joining our efforts.

We are currently seeking an MS or PhD student to work on the following project (beginning Spring, Summer or Fall 2019):

Modeling the Effects of Snow-Rain Transitions on Streamflow Availability in the Salt-Verde River Systems (with Salt River Project): This project will use the tRIBS model with its snow and channel transmission loss components to simulate the Beaver Creek watershed in central Arizona following Hawkins et al. (2015). The goal is to test if the transition of winter snow to rainfall affects the water balance components (for instance, sublimation, evaporation from soils, soil moisture, baseflow, stormflow) and how this might impact water supply availability.

Graduate Programs and Educational Collaborations:
