Oportunidad

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has two Ph.D. openings in the area of hydrology and water resources.

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
has two Ph.D. openings in the area of hydrology and water resources. The
first project will focus on developing operational platforms for flood and
drought forecasting using a wide variety of datasets, including
satellite-based observations, model-based estimates, and in-situ
measurements. It is important that the candidate has excellent programming
skills, preferably in MATLAB and/or Python, and a strong background in
mathematics and statistics. The second position will focus on modeling
human-water interactions at different time-scales over different regions.
One of the goals in this project would be to develop a socio-hydrology
modeling framework that can help us improve water resources management
practices. The candidates will get ample opportunities to explore new
ideas within the scope of the projects.

The Department of Civil Engineering has a rich history of over 140 years.
Students graduating from the department will get a degree in Civil
Engineering. To learn more about the graduate admission process in the
engineering program, please visit

Interested candidates are encouraged to send their CV and a research plan
to Tirthankar Roy (roy@unl.edu<mailto:roy@unl.edu>). Include your past and
current research experience along with the future research plans. The
projects will involve programming quite extensively. Therefore, make sure
to discuss your programming expertise in the research statement. You can
talk about one prior work where you had to do a good amount of
programming.
