[CRYOLIST] Graduate Assistantship – Community Snow Observations Project – Oregon State University

A Graduate Research Assistantship is available in the Water Resources Graduate Program (https://ift.tt/2FR18UK) at Oregon State University starting in Summer 2019. The successful applicant
will pursue a PhD and will join the Community Snow Observations (communitysnowobs.org) project, a NASA-funded project conducted by the University of Alaska, University of Washington, and Oregon State University.
See a brief project overview in Nature at https://ift.tt/2rf1iLN. The research assistant (RA) will be responsible for carrying out high-resolution, energy balance
modeling of snow processes in mountain environments, with emphasis on innovative assimilation techniques for model improvement. Preferred qualifications include a background in water resources engineering, physical hydrology, or cryospheric science; skills
in Fortran, Matlab or Python; and familiarity with processing of large geospatial datasets. An ability to operate (skis, snowshoes, or splitboard) independently in remote winter environments is necessary. An ability to operate well in a collaborative environment
is essential. Inquiries should be sent to Dr. David Hill (david.hill@oregonstate.edu). To apply, please visit https://ift.tt/2FQZ2o4.
