*Graduate Assistantships*

*Northern Arizona University:* PhD and MS positions in *Ecosystem Ecology* are
available in the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society (Ecoss) at
Northern Arizona University. The Ecoss mission is to conduct high-impact,
innovative research on ecosystems and how they respond to and shape
environmental change, to train next-gen scientists, and to communicate
discovery and its relevance to people. Research opportunities are available
in the following areas linked to specific Ecoss faculty:

The impact of climate change on Alaskan ecosystems, including effects of
changing fire regime and permafrost thaw on vegetation dynamics,
plant-soil-microbial interactions, nutrient and carbon cycling, and
ecosystem services. *M. **Mack, T. Schuur*

The effects of environmental change on soil carbon and nutrient cycling,
and the physiological, population and community ecology of soil
microorganisms. *B.* *Hungate, P. Dijkstra, E. Schwartz *

Freshwater ecology, including the science of river restoration and dam
removal, terrestrial aquatic interactions and food web ecology. *J. Marks*

Exploring the interaction of water and carbon metabolism in diverse studies
ranging from the limits to height growth of the world's tallest trees to
drought responses of soil microorganisms*. **G. Koch*.

Graduate student benefits include stipend, tuition waiver, health
insurance, support for summer fieldwork in a variety of beautiful
ecosystems, and winter in the peaks of sunny Flagstaff, AZ. Candidates
