I am looking for highly motivated PhD students in the field of hydrological processes, data analytics, 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. The research group addresses these questions using a combination of experimental, theoretical, numerical and computational methods. Candidates with background or interest in either of the following fields are strongly encouraged to apply: watershed hydrology, ecohydrology, snow hydrology, groundwater hydrology, hydrologic model development, flood and drought predictions, machine learning, etc.

Applicants interested in the position should have:
* BS or MS degree in any branch of Engineering, Geosciences, Applied mathematics, Computer science, Statistics or related fields.
* Superlative knowledge of at least one programming language, strong numerical modeling and/or computing skills, and excellent analytical ability.
* Ability to articulate research objectives and hypotheses, strong verbal and written skills, and ability to work as part of a team.

Please submit your pre-application package to Dr. Mukesh Kumar (email hidden; JavaScript is required), that includes a short note expressing your interest and curriculum vitae. Review of applications will begin immediately. View sampling of my work on publications page.
