We have opportunities for creative, hardworking and very motivated undergraduate, graduate students, visiting scholars and postdocs in our research group. See the research and cooperative extension webpages to find out about our ongoing projects. Prospective students should have a strong interest in integrated water resources management, hydrology, system modeling, decision making process, water governance, balanced human and environmental water management, science-based solutions and designing of strategies to balance competing water uses and interests. We encourage people to apply from a multidisciplinary background: ecologist, hydrologist, civil engineers, environmental engineers, irrigation engineers, sociologist, lawyers, geologist, among other backgrounds. Prospective graduate students, postdocs and undergrads are strongly encouraged to contact Samuel Sandoval.
