Position available: PhD Research Assistantships – Hydroinformatics and Hydrologic Modeling Systems

Job Description
Up to three PhD student assistantships are available at Utah State University starting Fall 2013 for graduate students to help develop cyberinfrastructure to support hydrology and water resources modeling and to more seamlessly share data, hydrologic models, and model components. This research is supported by multiple National Science Foundation grants, including HydroShare (http://www.cuahsi.org/HydroShare.aspx), Utah’s innovative Urban Transitions and Aridregion Hydrosustainability (iUTAH) project (http://www.iutahepscor.org), CI-WATER (http://ci-water.org/), and the CUAHSI HIS (http://his.cuahsi.org).

Modeling work will include development of technical approaches for coupling hydrologic models in support of developing holistic models of natural and human mediated hydrology of western water systems. Additional cyberinfrastructure research may include development of software systems supporting sensors and sensor networks, automated quality control and management of streaming sensor data, analysis and visualization of large, sensor-derived datasets, new methods for sharing hydrologic data and models, and enhanced information and data models for hydrologic and environmental data.

Assistantships will be awarded through the Utah Water Research Laboratory at Utah State University.

Applicants must apply for admission through the USU graduate school http://www.usu.edu/graduateschool/. Applicants should have a background in engineering, hydrology, computer science, or a closely related field. Priority will be given to students with experience or strong interest in computer programming, hydrologic modeling, and/or cyberinfrastructure development.

For more information on the application process, please contact Dr. Jeff Horsburgh at jeff.horsburgh@usu.edu.

Utah State University is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourages applicants from all backgrounds to apply.
