PhD Student Working on Climate Change, Water Resources, and Hydropower

Colorado School of Mines

Golden, CO, USA 🇺🇸

We have an opening for a PhD student interested in working on a project related to climate change, water resources, and hydropower operations. The ideal candidate for this role would have experience working with macroscale hydrologic models, or an interest in learning to use these models. If you’re interested, please email Dr. Marshall with a CV and a note describing your interest in this research area.

If you’re interested in an MS degree or a different research area that’s generally within the themes of our group, please reach out for those as well.


If you’re interested in a position in our lab (even if there are no currently open opportunities), please send Dr. Marshall an email with your CV and cover letter describing (1) how your background relates to our lab and (2) your research interests.


We’re always interested in meeting prospective students and postdocs who are interested in advancing scientific understanding of changing water and climate. Ideal qualities in potential group members are enthusiasm, a collaborative spirit, communication skills, and a willingness to learn to use reproducible computational tools for hydrology. Our lab values diversity, equity, and justice, and we welcome applications from students with non-traditional backgrounds.

Students can be admitted into the MS or PhD programs in Hydrologic Sciences & Engineering (HSE) or Geology & Geological Engineering.  Funding opportunities may be available through a combination of research and teaching assistantships or external fellowships.
