University of California Riverside

The Catchment Hydrology and Spatial Analysis lab (http://www.hooriajami.ucr.edu/) at the University of California Riverside (UCR) led by Dr. Hoori Ajami, invites applications from prospective PhD students interested in pursuing research in Catchment scale hydrologic modeling in the Department of Environmental Sciences .

The focus of the projects is on: 1) understanding surface water-groundwater interactions at large catchment scale in California using the integrated groundwater-land surface model (ParFlow.CLM), and 2) developing computationally efficient modeling approaches for large scale catchment simulations using the newly developed Soil Moisture and Runoff simulation Toolkit (SMART).

Qualifications: Applicants must hold a BS degree in Hydrology, Environmental Sciences/Civil Engineering or related disciplines.

Skills: The ideal candidate will have strong quantitative skills and excellent oral and written communication skills. Previous experience in hydrologic modeling, computer programming and GIS are preferred.

Application contents: Curriculum Vitae, A personal statement (1−2 pages), Unofficial transcripts, GRE scores, and Contact information of 3 referees.

Funding is available for 2 graduate students starting in Fall 2018. For consideration, please send your application to Dr. Hoori Ajami (hoori.ajami@ucr.edu).
