Graduate Research Assistantship – CREWS/MSU Watershed Hydrology LabJob Type(s): Other
Deadline: June 2, 2020 12:00 am
The Montana Consortium for Research on Environmental Water Systems (CREWS) and the Montana State University Watershed Hydrology Lab are seeking applicants for a graduate research assistantship to join a large and diverse research team focused on biogeochemical and hydrological processes of agricultural systems on the mountain fronts of the Northern Great Plains. The research is particularly motivated by understanding the controls on the quality of ground and surface water resources, and the focus is on the fate and transport of solutes influenced by agricultural amendments and their transport through soils, groundwater, and stream-riparian corridors.
The position is based at Montana State University and is funded until August of 2023. The position provides an opportunity to work within a large interdisciplinary team of biogeochemists, physical chemists, materials scientists, social scientists, and hydrologists across multiple institutions. Competency and enthusiasm for management of deployment of in situ field sensors and development of tools for automated analysis of the data they provide is preferred. The position includes expectation of some extended visits to the field site throughout the duration of the study.
The position is open immediately. Ph.D. students are preferred, though masters students will be considered. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Robert Payn at email@example.com.
