We invite applications for a PhD position on "Watershed Management Under Changing Climate and Land-use" at the HydroGeoScience for Watershed Management research group, Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, The University of British Columbia (UBC-Vancouver).

Research Group:
HydroGeoScience for Watershed Management (HGS-WM) is an interdisciplinary research group that uses bottom-up and top-down modelling approaches to generate scientific evidences required to inform watershed management. The research group is part of UBC’s Geological Engineering program which has a rich history of over 100 years and houses impactful scientists and textbooks in hydrology.

Project Aim:
The successful candidate will determine the impacts of climate and land-use changes on the pathway and travel time of hydrologic cycles and fluxes, and their linkages to flood-rich and drought-rich periods. In addition to scientific achievements, this project will provide management authorities in Canada and abroad with science-based decision-making tools to meet water and ecosystem sustainability targets and to ensure the flood/drought resilience of landscapes.

Requirements:

  • Sound knowledge on catchment hydrology
  • Expertise in developing (semi)distributed hydrologic models
  • Knowledge on hydrograph analysis
  • Some experience with model scripting/programming
  • Some experience with GIS methods & software
