Lab is a highly productive group that primarily focuses on the
intersections between water quality, climate change and agriculture in the
Midwestern United States.  PI Dr. Linda Prokopy has a number of grants to

have the opportunity to work with multiple investigators at other
universities.  The candidate will have the opportunity to work on other
