MS and PhD positions in Earth Surface Processes
The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science is soliciting applications for qualified MS and PhD students in Earth Surface Processes (i.e., Critical Zone Science). We are seeking students interested in elucidating: 1) plant-soil-atmosphere interactions, 2) soil formation processes and resultant emergence of hydraulic properties, 3) groundwater-surface water interactions, and 4) geomorphic evolution. At KU we foster interdisciplinary research, and will support students to integrate field observations, isotope geochemistry, remotely sensed observations and modelling (e.g., climate, hydrologic, reactive transport). Please contact us with questions or send a CV and short letter of interest.
Deadline for submission is January 15th.
Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science (https://geog.ku.edu/):
· Dr. Pamela L. Sullivan—Ecohydrology and Aqueous/Soil Geochemistry
· Dr. Daniel Hirmas—Quantitative Pedology/ Soil Geomorphology
· Dr. Nathaniel Brunsell—Biometeorology and Land-Atmosphere Interactions
· Dr. William Johnson—Geomorphology
· Dr. Cornelis van der Veen—Glaciology
We also work in tandem with a diverse, interdisciplinary faculty from the Department of Geology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, as well as scientists from the Kansas Biological Survey and the Kansas Geological Survey.
The University of Kansas is a tier 1, public, international research university. Our mission is to lift students and society by educating leaders, building healthy communities, and making discoveries that will change the world. The “KU Water Research” community at KU includes not only scientists and engineers, but faculty, students and staff in the humanities, arts, social sciences, and education (https://water.ku.edu/), with a goal of synergistic learning and discovery in water-related research and creative expression.
The University of Kansas is an equal-opportunity/ affirmative-action employer. The University encourages applications from underrepresented group members.
