Welcome to CHWR@NC State

The Climate, Hydrology and Water Resources Modeling and Synthesis Group is interested in understanding, modeling and forecasting hydrological fluxes at large spatial scales based on land surface and climatic indices. Other topics of research include water resources planning and management and environmental assessment in developing countries.

The group’s primary research interest is at the interface of climate and water management focusing on large-scale hydroclimatology. Current research sponsors include National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NC Water Resources Research Institute.


Post-doctoral and PhD Research Opportunities @CHWR

The research group is always interested in recruiting highly motivated post-doctoral research scientists and PhD students for research on climate, hydrology and water resources. The ideal candidates will have a strong background in climate, hydrological modeling and water management. Knowledge and research experience on mathematical programming, data analysis, machine learning methods and stochastic modeling would be a plus. Applicants should have a Masters/PhD degree in water/energy/hydrology/climate or a related field.  Interested candidates should submit their application (see below) with the following information: (1) curriculum vita, (2) a letter describing research interests and experience, (3) recent publications (not more than three) and (4) names and contact information for three references. Interested applicants can directly contact Dr. Sankar Arumugam (sankar_arumugam AT ncsu.edu).
