The Terrestrial Ecosystem Science & Technology (TEST<http://www.bnl.gov/test>) group at Brookhaven National Laboratory/Stony Brook University is currently recruiting Ph.D. students with one (or more) of the following skill sets:
§ Experience with portable infrared gas analyzers.
§ An understanding of photosynthesis and experience modeling gas exchange.
§ Knowledge of Arctic plant communities and their ecology.
§ Experience conducting field work, particularly in extreme environments.
A degree in the biological sciences is required, preferably in plant biology. Candidates with an interest in the measurement and model representation of leaf and plant community gas exchange, and those with extensive experience working with Arctic plant communities are strongly encouraged to apply. Students will be supervised by Dr. Alistair Rogers and have the opportunity to structure their thesis research around a multi institute U.S. Department of Energy Arctic research project, Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments-Arctic (NGEE-Arctic, ngee.ornl.gov<http://ngee.ornl.gov/>).
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct field research on the North Slope of Alaska, collaborate with over one hundred scientists engaged in the NGEE-Arctic project, and the faculty and scientists at Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory. Financial support may be available through a combination of research grants, graduate fellowships, and teaching opportunities.
Please send CV and cover letter describing research interests to Dr. Alistair Rogers (arogers at bnl.gov<mailto:arogers at bnl.gov>). The deadline for applicants to the Ecology & Evolution doctoral program at Stony Brook University<http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/ee/programs.html> is January 15th.
