Post-Doctoral Position in Remote Sensing of Mountain Ecohydrology

We are accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Remote Sensing of Mountain 
Ecohydrologyto investigate snow-vegetation interactions and mountain hydrology. The project will 
integrate ground-based field measurements with NASA airborne and satellite remote sensing 
datasets at sites in the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains. The position has the potential for field 
work that would take place in remote snowy conditions if the selected candidate was interested in 
participating.

The fellowship provides two years of salary coverage contingent upon successful progress in year 1 
and include 15% release time to pursue independent research. The start date for this position will be 
no later than January 15, 2017.  More details on how to apply found here:

Graduate Research Position in Mountain Ecohydrology

We invite applications for a Ph.D. student to fill a research assistantship in the Graduate Program of 
Hydrologic Sciences at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR).  The exact nature of the research 
project will depend on student interests.  Typically research involves combing field, remote sensing, 
and modeling efforts.  Quantitive background, including computer coding in R, Python, or MATLAB, is 
strongly encouraged.  Experience traveling over snow is desirable (but not required).  More 
information can be found at https://naes.unr.edu/harpold/.  To discuss the position please contact Dr. 
Adrian Harpold with a CV and a letter stating your interests and college GPA and recent GRE scores.

Located in the Truckee Meadows at the base of the Sierra Nevada to the west with the Intermountain 
West to the east, the University of Nevada, Reno, is 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe. Numerous outdoor 
activities can be found in and adjacent to the city, including skiing, cycling, and climbing with 30 
minutes of downtown. The region is also home to many culturally and socially rich activities.  
Northern Nevada is home to a growing food culture, with many small farms feeding the farm to table 
movement and local restaurants, including a dozen micro-breweries/distillers/vintners in the region.
