Up to four funded PhD assistantships in terrestrial hydrometeorology remote
sensing and data assimilation

Boise State University announces up to four funded 3-year doctoral
assistantships in support of two NASA grants to improve modeling of weather
and snowpack dynamics in complex terrain. The successful cohort of students
are expected to work collaboratively with a team of scientists in the broad
area of remote sensing of hydrometeorologic and terrestrial vegetation
variables, coupled land-atmosphere atmosphere modeling using the Weather
Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, assimilation of remotely sensed data
into offline land surface and coupled land-atmosphere models, and
development and deployment of surface observations based on open source
electronics (e.g., Arduinos, etc.). Candidates with demonstrated
quantitative skills such as scientific programming in Python or MATLAB, and
in electronic data acquisition techniques are particularly sought.

Prospective students should contact Prof. Alejandro Flores (
lejoflores at boisestate.edu), project PI, and other potential advisors Profs.
Nancy Glenn (nancyglenn at boisestate.edu), Hans-Peter Marshall (
hpmarshall at boisestate.edu), and/or Jim McNamara (jmcnamar at boisestate.edu).
