Graduate Student Positions in Stream Restoration available at UNC Charlotte

Graduate Student and Postdoc Positions
Posted: 2/17/2017
Expiration Date: 3/31/2017

Research assistantships are available at the M.S. or Ph.D. level at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to participate in a funded project investigating the impact of whole-watershed restoration on urban stream ecology, groundwater-surface water interactions, and their connections to water quality. The Reedy Creek Restoration Study is a multi-year watershed-scale project focused on understanding the effects of restoration of a 2.5 square mile forested urban watershed. Goals are to determine how watershed scale restoration influences (1) macroinvertebrate recovery, (2) watershed hydrology and groundwater-surface water interactions, and (3) water quality, organic matter, and sediment characteristics.

Students interested in hydrology, biogeochemistry, and/or stream ecology are encouraged to apply. Applicants with experience and interests in macroinvertebrates or groundwater-surface water interactions are especially encouraged to apply.

Qualifications: BS or MS degree in a related field is required. Applicants with a master’s degree may pursue Ph.D. studies through the Infrastructure & Environmental Systems program (http://ines.uncc.edu/). Applicants to the M.S. program in Earth Sciences will also be considered (http://geoearth.uncc.edu/masters-programs/masters-earth-sciences). Successful applicants should have interest in working in a field-based, interdisciplinary, quantitative research environment. Stipends and tuition waivers are available on a competitive basis for highly qualified students.

Potential applicants should directly contact Dr. Sandra Clinton (sclinto1@uncc.edu) or Dr. David Vinson (dsvinson@uncc.edu). Review of complete applications will begin immediately and will continue until suitable candidates are found. The anticipated start date is between May and August 2017.
