From: Jim Hood <hoodx008 at UMN.EDU>
Subject: PhD Position, Global change and stream ecosystem ecology
Cross Lab: Department of Ecology, Montana State University
I am seeking a highly motivated student to join a new study focused on the
interactive effects of climate warming and nutrient enrichment on stream
ecosystems. Our multi-institution team has been studying the effects of
warming in southwestern Iceland (a link to our blog:
http://icelandstreams.blogspot.com/) using a series of geothermally-heated
streams and temperature manipulations. We are now planning manipulations of
nutrient supply (nitrogen and phosphorus) across natural and experimental
thermal gradients. The student=E2=80=99s research will focus on how stream=
webs respond to these manipulations.
Applicants should have a strong background in ecology and freshwater
science, an interest in food webs and ecosystem ecology, and an
ability/willingness to work with a large collaborative team of national and
international scientists (https://sites.google.com/site/hengillresearch/).
The student should also have demonstrated field and laboratory experience.
Field work may involve long hours and moderately strenuous sampling in wet
and cold conditions.
The student will be supported by both teaching and research assistantships.
To learn more about the Cross Lab or the Department of Ecology at Montana
State University please visit: http://www.montana.edu/wcross and
http://www.montana.edu/ecology/. Applicants with a master=E2=80=99s degree =
preferred, but an MS is not required.
To apply, please send a brief letter of interest, a resume, GPA, GRE
scores, and a writing example to: Dr. Wyatt Cross at wyatt.cross at montana.ed=
The position is available beginning in Spring of 2015, but an early summer
start date will be considered.
