PhD position in urban water at Colorado State University
I am seeking a PhD student to pursue research on the fate of urban landscape irrigation in the Colorado Front Range and the contribution of lawn irrigation return flow to stream base flow. I anticipate the work to involve a combination of field data collection at the plot and small watershed scale, integrated hydrologic modeling, and remote sensing analysis.
The applicant should have completed a MS degree and have a background in Civil and Environmental Engineering or a related field. The graduate admissions deadline for priority consideration of available funding is 1 September 2017 in order to start in Spring 2018. For more information on the graduate application process for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University, see http://www.engr.colostate.edu/ce/applicationinfo.shtml. See my webpage (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~abhaskar/) for more about my previous research.
Those interested are encouraged to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, an unofficial transcript, a description of your research background including experience in performing numerical modeling, remote sensing, and field data collection, as well as a description of your research interests.
