Ph.D. opportunities at the intersection of rivers and climate
Utah State University, Utah, United States
Start reviewing process: 12 November 2022

We are recruiting several students for fully supported PhD opportunities at the intersection of fluvial geomorphology and climate change. This National Science Foundation supported project seeks to determine how mountain river channels will respond to changes in climatic forcing with a focus on the near future. Our project represents an exciting collaboration between the Geomorphology Lab at Washington University in St. Louis and the Sediment Dynamics Lab at Utah State University. Within this project interested students will receive collaborative mentoring from both Claire Masteller and Colin Phillips with opportunities to engage with laboratory experiments, fieldwork, GIS and terrain analysis, and sediment transport data synthesis and modeling.

For consideration or additional information, please contact Claire ( and Colin ( and include a copy of your CV/Resume and your latest academic transcript.
