Graduate Assistantship Opportunities - MS and PhD

Expiration Date: 

Graduate student opportunities for both MS and PhD levels are available at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Dr. Kunza’s research group for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. Currently funded projects are focused on large river biogeochemistry, range land salinization influence on water quality, and contaminant research including PFAS. We are conveniently located in the beautiful Black Hills in SD, but travel may also be needed to the Kootenai River in MT/ID and British Columbia as early as August 2021 depending upon project fit with student experience.

Interested students may contact Dr. Kunza (, please include your CV, and a brief statement of your research interests, experiences, and professional goals. Students may apply for the MS or PhD in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences with environmental emphasis or our new MS in Green and Sustainable Chemistry.
