Two Ph. D. Positions in land-Surface Fluxes at Washington State
University (WSU), Pullman, USA

We are seeking two energetic and motivated Ph. D. students beginning in
August 2015 to join us to conduct research in micrometeorology and
land-climate interactions in the Laboratory for Atmospheric Research
(LAR), Washington State University (WSU), Pullman, Washington.
Applicants should have strong background in atmospheric sciences,
physics, hydrology, ecology, or related fields. A
quantitative/programming skills and previous field experience are
desired. The students will work on quantifying surface energy, water,
and carbon budgets over different ecosystems by applications of eddy
covariance techniques. One student will closely work a
multi-disciplinary team of scientists at WSU and the Pacific Northwest
National Lab (PNNL) in micrometeorology, land-climate interactions, land
surface modeling, hydrology, biogeochemistry, and microbiology to
understand effects of variations in the hydrologic cycle and climate
change on coupled hydrologic and biogeochemical processes in the
groundwater-surface water interaction zone, and their impacts on local
to regional scale land-atmosphere interactions and climate using
observations and models.

The full research assistantship includes stipend, tuition, and health
insurance. Prospective students should contact Dr. Heping Liu
(heping.liu@wsu.edu <mailto:heping.liu@wsu.edu>) for additional
information. Admission requirements can be found at the WSU Graduate
School website: <http://gradsch.wsu.edu/>. For international students,
TOEFL scores are required and GRE scores are optional. WSU is an EEO
employer.
