We are currently seeking a PhD student to work on a NSF funded project. The project will investigate physical transport and stoichiometric controls on nutrient uptake and retention in streams across 3 CZO sites (Boulder, Catalina-Jemez, and IML). This project is collaborative across CSU, University of New Mexico, CU Boulder, and Colorado School of Mines. The PhD student will collaborate with faculty and graduate students from each of these institutions and will have the opportunity to gain expertise and skills from each research group. The position will entail considerable fieldwork along with quantitative analysis. Students will gain expertise in emerging tracer techniques (smart tracers, nutrient additions), geospatial imaging of subsurface hydrology, and modeling. An ideal candidate would have interests in field based research and network modeling of hydro-biogeochemical processes.
This position includes monthly stipend, tuition, and health insurance. The PhD student will also engage in departmental teaching.

Allie Rhea has been awarded a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) for her work on post-wildfire water quality. Allie will use remote sensing to upscale ground-based information. Her work will be helpful in evaluating large spatial scale implications of wildfire to water quality in the Front Range of Colorado. Congratulations Allie!

Our special issue at WRR 'Emergent aquatic carbon-nutrient dynamics as products of hydrological, biogeochemicial, and ecological interactions' is now open for manuscript submissions.
Lead-PI and ESS department head John Moore has been awarded an NSF STEM-C grant to investigate:"Research on Effects of Integrating Computational Science and Model Building in Water Systems Teaching and Learning". This is a multi-university/institution grant and the Watershed Hydrology group is a member of the CSU team. Congrats to John!
Thank you for visiting the watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry research group at Colorado State University. We are interested in understanding the physical, biological, and human influences on hydrological, biogeochemical, and ecosystem processes.
