(http://biology.wvu.edu/faculty/faculty-pages/edward-brzostek) in the
Department of Biology at West Virginia University starting in the fall of=

2016.  Broadly, our lab studies how interactions between plants and soil
microbes influence carbon and nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems,=

and how these interactions will impact ecosystem responses to global chan=
 To do this, we couple empirical measurements with process and ecosystem
model development to scale up mechanisms that operate at the level of
individual roots and their associated mycorrhizae to larger scales.=20
Incoming students are encouraged to develop their own research projects i=
these areas.  Importantly, we strive to promote a fun, enthusiastic lab
environment that encourages an atmosphere of collaboration and shared
intellectual development. The Department of Biology at WVU has a core of
faculty members that study a variety of topics in forest ecology and also=
in close proximity to world-class research sites including the WVU Resear=
Forest and the Fernow Experimental Forest (http://www.as.wvu.edu/fernow/)=

detailed information about the WVU Biology graduate student program is
available at http://biology.wvu.edu/graduate.  The deadline for applicati=
is January 1st, 2016 (although late applications will be accepted if slot=
are still available).  Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to
