Masters Student Opportunities, North Dakota State University

There are currently openings for two Masters-level graduate students in the Environmental Conservation Science (ECS) Graduate Program at North Dakota State University. Both positions are fully funded 2 year research assistantships.

One project focuses on building a hydrologic and sediment budget for a small urban drainage area that has recently been modified to promote increased infiltration and evapotranspiration. The successful applicant will have a general background in mathematics, hydrology, and computer skills. Research interests should include hydrology, sediment transport, and computer/numerical modeling. The second project will focus on comparing erosion rates measured from repeat lidar and terrestrial laser scanning datasets with a specific emphasis on landsliding. Applicants should have a background in mathematics, GIS, remote sensing and/or landscape change. Research interests should involve sediment erosion, landslides, and GIS.

Background skills for either position are desired, but not required.

For additional information on either of these positions please contact Dr. Stephanie S. Day at stephanie.day@ndsu.edu
