The watershed hydrology research group in Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment is looking for highly motivated PhD students in the field of hydrologic process interactions, snow distribution and melt processes, optimization and modeling. The projects in the research group seek to provide information on the interaction between climate, vegetation, land use, topography and hydro-geology on the spatio-temporal variability of surface and subsurface hydrologic processes (see http://tinyurl.com/ksmdx2f). The research group addresses these questions using a combination of experimental, theoretical, numerical and computational methods.
