I have two graduate positions available on an NSF-funded collaborative project on urban aquatic DOC. Students will be part of a team working in 5 urban areas across the US to understand human and biophysical drivers of DOC dynamics over space and time. The PhD and Doctorate of Arts (DA) students will be part of a team collecting data in Salt Lake City, UT. Research will include field sampling, high-frequency sensors, lab experiments and analysis. Students will learn a variety of spatial and time-series analysis tools and have the opportunity to lead analysis and writing and collaborate as part of a larger team on comparative papers.
Funding: Funding for the PhD student is a mix of research and teaching assistantships, with summer funding. Funding for the DA student is as a fellowship with additional summer funding. The DA program is a unique program for students who are interested in a teaching-focused career. It is a highly flexible program that includes pedagogical training, teaching internships, as well as disciplinary research and a dissertation.
Preferences and Requirements: The DA applicants should have a master's degree. PhD applications with a master's degree will be given preference. I will also consider applications for MS students for this project. See http://www2.isu.edu/bios/grad/ for more information about our degree programs and requirements.**
**Note that while the Biology Dept does require the GRE, I do not consider these scores in choosing prospective students. If your scores are not above the minimum application requirements, don't let that stop you from applying!
If interested, please send a letter with your research interests, experiences, and career goals, and a CV to Dr. Rebecca Hale at email@example.com by Oct 31st.
