Subject: Ph.D. Opportunity in Ecosystem Ecology & Biogeochemistry at Boston
I invite applications for doctoral work in my lab beginning fall 2016 in =
areas of biogeochemistry, forest ecology, global change biology and relat=
fields. Applicants should be independent and highly motivated with academ=
research and/or field experience in plant ecology, soil ecology or nutrie=
cycling. Funding is available to work on a project at Hubbard Brook
examining the effects of climate change on forest productivity and nutrie=
dynamics in northern hardwood forests
(www.hubbardbrook.org/research/climate/templer.shtml). This NSF-funded
project aims to better understand how climate change affects biogeochemic=
cycling of nitrogen, carbon and water.
My research program covers a broad range of topics including human impact=
on the global nitrogen cycle, the effects of urbanization on nitrogen and=
carbon cycling, nutrient inputs from fog to coastal forest ecosystems, an=
the role of disturbances in nutrient uptake by trees. Students in my lab
participate in the interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Biogeoscience at
Boston University (www.bu.edu/bio-geo), which spans many departments
including Biology, Earth & Environment, and Archaeology. The Graduate=
at Boston University guarantees five years of salary for Ph.D. students.
I encourage prospective students to contact me (ptempler at bu.edu) to discu=
potential projects. Please use =93Prospective Graduate Student=94 in the =
line. Formal review of applications will begin in our department December=
2015, but interested applicants should contact me any time.
