Graduate Research opportunities in Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry (Master or PhD)
Department of Earth Sciences, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)
The Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry lab at IUPUI seeks two motivated MS or PhD candidates working on ecohydrologic observations (field based studies), modelling and/or water-nitrogen interactions starting in Fall 2013. The essential question is how environmental changes influence water and nutrient cycling in different ecosystems (more information please refer to the group websitemypage.iu.edu/~lxwang/Lixin_Wang/Research.html).
Research experience in one or more of the following areas is preferred: Biogeochemistry, Ecology, Isotope geochemistry, Soil Science and Environmental Sciences. The knowledge and expertise in stable isotopes (2H, 18O and 15N) is desirable. Graduate study experience and published scientific results are a plus.
IUPUI is Indiana’s premier urban public research university. In 2011, IUPUI ranked 3rd by U.S. News and World Report in “Up-and-Coming National Universities.” Indianapolis is a very livable city. The department has a wide variety of analytical facilities including LGR and Picarro water isotope analyzers, IRMS facility, wet chemistry lab suitable for a wide range of soil, water and plant chemical analyses.
The support for the position(s) will be a combination of teaching and research assistantships. To apply, please send a copy of your application materials (statement of interest, resume, unofficial transcripts and GRE score, TOEFL score (if applicable) and contact information of three referees) to Dr. Lixin Wang (email@example.com). Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Please feel free to contact Dr. Lixin Wang for additional information or questions.
