MA/PhD position, paleoflood hydrology - Minneapolis, MN, USA

The Center of Dendrochronology at the University of Minnesota, USA, is seeking to recruit a graduate student to join an NSF-funded project on extreme paleofloods on the northern Great Plains.


The placement begins Northern Hemisphere Fall 2019.


This position, which will be co-supervised by Prof. Scott St. George (Minnesota) and Dr. Joe Zeleznik (North Dakota State University), will combine methods from dendrochronology, wood anatomy, and paleoflood hydrology to produce extended flood records for the Red River of the North basin.

The successful candidate will receive additional training from collaborators at the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research and the United States Geological Survey.

The project is structured to support a Master’s student for two years, but for outstanding candidates with a broad interest in paleoflood hydrology, the work could be configured as part of a PhD program.


Applications close 15 December 2018.
