We are always looking for interested students, postdoctoral fellows and scientists that want to understand Earth’s surface freshwater and ice through computer modeling, data analysis, and field work. While we’ll try to keep this page updated with openings, don’t hesitate to reach out. See the button on the right side of the page.



Open Grad Student Positions

The Surface Hydrodynamics Laboratory at the Colorado School of Mines is recruiting two funded PhD students with general interests in (1) hydrodynamic-ice modeling of large lakes and coastal ocean, or (2) climate-driven changes in hydrodynamic conditions in Earth’s largest lakes. Prospective students can apply through either the Hydrologic Science and Engineering Program, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, or the Department of Geophysics.

The Colorado School of Mines is located along the beautiful front range of the Rocky Mountains. At Mines, you will be among leaders in hydrology, meteorology, and Earth science. Our group focuses on the interface between hydrology, hydrodynamics (physical oceanography), and meteorology.

If interested, please send a brief description of your interests, your CV/resume, and copies of your transcripts to Eric Anderson ( Informal inquiries are welcome. Please reach out for more details on possible research topics.

The priority application deadline for Mines is December 15, 2022, and more information about our graduate programs can be found here.
