PhD Student Opportunities

  • Currently, I have two open positions for Exceptional Talented Students. For this year, I am looking for a highly motivated PhD student interested in surface water modeling. Candidates are expected to have an M.S. in environmental engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering or a related field and an interest in modeling and/or field-based research. Interested candidates are encouraged to email me their CVs before the PhD interview day set by the university.
