Do you like it wet and cold? Are you interested in glaciers, permafrost and hydrology? If you answered Yes to any of these questions and are looking to enter a M.S or Ph.D. degree program, check out WERC’s new graduate student opportunities.

The Water and Environmental Research Center (WERC), and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UAF, in collaboration with the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) Fairbanks, North Carolina State University, the International Arctic Research Center and the Geophysical Institute at UAF are seeking two graduate students to perform:

  • hydrologic modeling and field measurements

    (Ph.D. student)

  • geochemical modeling and field measurements of a glacierized catchment underlain by discontinuous permafrost

    (M.S. student)

As part of the Jarvis Creek project, both positions include multiple field trips to perform glacier, snow, meteorological, hydrological and geochemical measurements.

Detailed position descriptions and application information can be found on the Jarvis Creek website.
