Come to Fort Collins and help me get my lab started!

I am recruiting a PhD student for fall of 2019. For now, the exact nature of the project is open, though it will likely be focused on using large open-access datasets to interrogate how people are changing the environment, especially freshwaters. I’m especially looking to work with someone interested in developing a strong background in both ecosystem ecology and data science with an eye towards using this knowledge to move the needle on how we design, restore, and/or conserve ecosystems. Ideally, this student would have a master’s or previous work experience in data science and/or ecosystem ecology.

Some ideas for what this might look like are on my research page, but I’m open to other kinds of work.

If you are interested, please contact me at mrvr(at)
