 University of South Carolina, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences

Starting: January or August 2015 admission

Dr. Lori Ziolkowski is seeking a PhD student to join the Global Change
Biogeochemistry lab at University of South Carolina  (www.geol.sc.edu/zlab).
The student will assist with an NSF funded project focused on the
bioavailability of Arctic soil carbon.  This project aims to determine the
relationship between soil composition and organic carbon liability during
the Holocene.  This is a unique opportunity that couples two years of
fieldwork in Northern Alaska with laboratory-based organic geochemical
analyses with an emphasis on the radiocarbon composition of different
carbon pools.

Applicants should ideally already hold an MS degree and have at least one
degree in chemistry, geology, earth system science or related field.  The
ideal candidate will have a strong quantitative background and an interest
in interdisciplinary and experimental approaches to understanding Arctic
paleoclimate during the Holocene. It is expected that the student
participate in the collection of samples in remote locations in Northern
Alaska and laboratory based activities related to the radiocarbon
composition of soil organic carbon.

The position is available as early as January 2015 with fieldwork
commencing in August 2015.  For more information, contact Dr. Lori
Ziolkowski (loriz at sc.edu). To apply please email a cover letter describing
your research interests, goals and relevant experience, a complete CV,
college transcripts, GRE scores and contact information for three
references.  Review of applications will begin immediately and the position
will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.  After the selection,
the successful candidate will apply to be admitted to university; detailed
information about the application procedure for national and foreign
students is available online.
