The Soil Microbial Ecology lab in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at the University of Wyoming, Laramie, has a M.S. graduate assistantship available starting in summer/fall 2016.
We are seeking a highly-motivated M.S. student to do research on community ecology and physiology of soil microorganisms in response to environmental disturbances such as invasive species, mining, and wildfire. A wide range of research topics are possible including:
* Soil remediation of contaminated mine lands.
* Role of soil microorganisms in restoration of forests after wildfire.
* Microbial interactions with invasive plant species, e.g. cheatgrass.
* Effects of top-soil stock piling on soil microorganisms and consequences for mine land reclamation.
