Five graduate student positions (PhD and MS) for project examining temperature effects on organic carbon processing in forest stream networks

Graduate Student and Postdoc Positions
Posted: 12/12/2016
Expiration Date: 3/31/2017

Our large, collaborative research group is initially recruiting five graduate students (4 PhD, 1 MS) to start work in 2017 on a recently funded project, which seeks to understand and predict the consequences of climate warming for heterotrophic communities and processing of terrestrial organic carbon in headwater stream networks. The project will examine the effects of temperature in a multi-scale design that includes a paired-catchment whole-stream warming experiment, an array of warmed streamside channels, laboratory studies of aquatic microbes, and reach- and network-scale modeling. The fieldwork will take place at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory, North Carolina. The following positions are available:

The positions are open until filled; start date is July/August 2017. All include a competitive stipend, full tuition waiver and (in most cases) health benefits.

To apply, email the faculty member with whom you are interested in working (see above), providing a 1-page description of your research interests. Please also send your CV, a recent transcript (unofficial is OK), a writing sample, and names and contact information of three references.
