A PhD position is available beginning September 2016 in the Elliott Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh, Department of Geology and Environmental Science, as part of a 5-year, NSF-funded study of urban nitrogen dynamics. We are seeking new graduate student(s) to join our dynamic and interdisciplinary research group dedicated to using stable isotope geochemistry to examine nitrogen dynamics in atmospheric-ecosystem-hydrologic systems. Specific projects include examination of reactive nitrogen dynamics in urban watersheds, modeling riverine nitrogen fluxes, and tracking sources of nitrogen eutrophication to surface waters. Candidates from diverse disciplinary backgrounds are welcome, but an M.S. is required; only substantial research and prior publication experience will be considered in lieu of an M.S. degree. Desired qualifications (but not required) include hydrologic modeling and GIS experience, quantitative analysis, experience in the measurement or application of stable isotope data, and strong writing skills. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Elliott directly (eelliott at pitt.edu<https://webmail.pitt.edu/webmail/src/compose.php?send_to=eelliott%40pitt.edu> ) via an email that briefly describes research experiences and interests. Applications are due January 15, 2016.

Coupled with the low- cost of living, a lively arts and restaurant scene, and a strong sports presence, it is a fun and friendly place to live
