MS position in global change and stream ecosystem ecology
Hood Lab, Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology
The Ohio State University
I am seeking a Masters student to participate in a large, collaborative
project investigating the influence of climate warming and nutrient
enrichment on stream ecosystems. Our multi-institution team has been
studying the effects of warming and nutrient enrichment in southwestern
Iceland using a series of geothermally-heated streams and stream-side
channel experiments. The student=E2=80=99s research will focus on using the
stream-side channels to understand how warming and nutrient enrichment
interact to shape communities and ecosystem processes.
Applicants should have a strong background in ecology and freshwater
science, an interest in 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. Fieldwork
may involve long hours and moderately strenuous sampling in wet and cold
Ideally, the student would start in June 2016 and participate in the 2016
field season to gain experience with the stream-side channel experiments.
The student will be supported by both teaching and research assistantships.
Interested students should contact Dr. Jim Hood (hoodx008 at umn.edu) with a
brief letter of interest, a CV, GPA, and GRE scores if available. Review of
applications will begin on 1 November and continue until a suitable
candidate is identified. For more information please see my website (
www.montana.edu/hood/hood), the departmental website (http://eeob.osu.edu),
and our Iceland team blog (http://icelandstreams.blogspot.com).
