A graduate assistantship is available at the MS or PhD level in Louisiana State University’s (LSU) Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS) starting spring 2021. The successful applicant will work on building a database of CO2 in flowing waters (streams) across the US and use statistical modeling to detect spatial and temporal trends. Possibilities exist to link CO2 data (and other water quality measures) to other data for biological communities, including fish. Research themes will be in aquatic macroecology and development of big datasets for macroscale questions.
