PhD position in hydrologic and climate modeling
Arizona State University, Arizona, United States
Start reviewing process: 31 May 2022

One PhD student position is available in Prof. Giuseppe Mascaro’s ( research group beginning Fall 2022. The student will work on a project funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that is part of the Network for Engineering with Nature (N-EWN program. The position will focus on two main areas:
  1. Quantifying the utility of climate models to predict occurrence and magnitude of seasonal flood events upstream of reservoirs.
  2. Applying hydrologic and hydraulic models to simulate the impacts of different scenarios of water release from the reservoir to ultimately identify optimal areas for managed aquifer recharge (MAR).

A M.S. degree in hydrology, water resources, or civil engineering or work experience in the field are preferred. The position will involve modeling, programming, statistical analysis, and collaboration with computer scientists. Prior experience in these areas is highly desirable. Prior to applying, interested students should contact Dr. Mascaro at and attach a CV, along with a statement of research interests/motivation for the position.
