PhD positions in ecohydrology, hydrogeophysics and groundwater UWyo & NJIT
University of Wyoming and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Wyoming, United States
Start reviewing process: 18 November 2022

Three PhD positions in Hydrology at the University of Wyoming and one PhD position at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) available to start Summer or Fall 2023. These students will participate in a new DoE-funded project that seeks to understand groundwater-supported ecological refugia related to insect- and fire-driven disturbances in the Medicine Bow National Forest, Wyoming. While shallow water table has been identified as a key contributor to refugium formation at the scale of individual tree stands, processes that control water table feedbacks at the landscape (i.e., disturbance) scale remain unclear. The PhD positions at the University of Wyoming will be focused on groundwater hydrology/modeling, biophysics, and hydrogeophysics. The PhD position at NJIT will focus on integrated ecohydrologic modeling. Interested applicants should contact associated faculty members directly: groundwater hydrology (Zhang,, biophysics (Ewers,, hydrogeophysics (Parsekian,, integrated modeling (Tai, xiaonan.tai@njit).
