Measurements of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes in an Agroecosystem

The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) is seek=
ing a highly motivated doctoral or master=E2=80=99s student interested in i=
nterdisciplinary research in agro-ecosystems. This new project focuses on w=
ater management and greenhouse gas fluxes at a farm on the Delmarva Peninsu=
la. Our team of researchers (http://research.al.umces.edu/~davidson/ and ht=
tp://www.hpl.umces.edu/gis_group/) will be studying the impact of water tab=
le management through drainage on greenhouse gas fluxes (methane, nitrous o=
xide and carbon dioxide), on nitrate and phosphate leaching, and on socio-e=
conomic returns for farmers and society. We seek a student who will focus m=
ostly on micrometeorological measurements of nitrous oxide and methane flux=
es and who will contribute to the integrated team effort of this project. T=
he ideal candidate must have experience with eddy covariance or gradient fl=
ux measurements. Knowledge and experience in micrometeorology, soil biogeoc=
hemistry, hydrology, and programming using R are highly d=
esirable. A master's or bachelor's degree in a related fiel
d of the natural sciences (e.g. Environmental Science, Agronomy, Meteorolog=
y, Geography) is preferred.

Information on the UMCES graduate program can be found at: http://www.umces=
.edu/education/graduate_education.   The student will reside at the Appalac=
hian Laboratory in Frostburg (western MD, http://www.umces.edu/al).  At lea=
