A fully funded 4-year PhD position is open at the Catchment and Wetland Sciences (CAWS) Research Group (www.caws.ualberta.ca), in the Department of Renewable Resources at University of Alberta, under the supervision of Dr. David Olefeldt. Start of program is January 2023, or May 2023. We are looking for a talented student with interests in ecosystem greenhouse gas balance, soil biogeochemistry, peatland ecology, and Canada’s northern permafrost region. The project will focus on the use of eddy co-variance techniques to assess the greenhouse gas and energy balance of northern permafrost peatlands affected by wildfire. Field research will be conducted in northernmost Alberta at sites with established infrastructure.

The wetland biogeochemistry lab at SUNY-ESF is currently recruiting for a PhD student who will work on incorporating anaerobic microsites into wetland carbon cycling models. The student hired for this position will have the opportunity to advance the state of wetland carbon science by better representing the redoximorphic processes that lead to the production of methane in natural ecosystems using Ameriflux data.

Applications are now being accepted for a 2-year NICHD post-doctoral research fellowship in
Developmental Science at the University of Michigan. The Developmental Area within the
Department of Psychology will award one post-doctoral fellowship with an ideal start date
between August 1 and September 15. The successful applicant must complete all requirements
for the PhD before the post-doctoral fellowship can begin; however, it is not necessary that the
degree be conferred before the start date.
The objective of the fellowship is to train individuals on three pillars of knowledge: (1)
developmental science of social context; (2) human neurobiology, which may include brain
imaging, genetics, epigenetics, and endocrine function; and (3) advanced research methods
(e.g., quantitative statistics appropriate for combining and analyzing longitudinal data from
different levels of functioning). This cross-training will produce researchers well-positioned to
develop cutting-edge work that advances knowledge about how neurobiological factors interact
with environmental contexts to influence development across several domains and contexts.
The Developmental Area faculty has a broad range of research interests across the life-span
from infancy to late adulthood. See full description for details.

Graduate assistantship (doctoral or master’s) in interdisciplinary research in agro-ecosystems. We seek a student who will focus mostly on micrometeorological measurements of nitrous oxide and methane fluxes and who will contribute to the integrated team effort of this project pertaining to nitrate and nitrous oxide losses in response to water table management.
