The Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry lab of Indiana University-Purdue
University Indianapolis (IUPUI) seeks multiple motivated students
interested in pursuing a MS or PhD (Applied Earth Sciences) degree in the
Department of Earth Sciences. Two federal funded projects are available to
support the students’ endeavors. One NSF funded project is on the effects
of non-rainfall water input on plant-soil water interactions in drylands
with fieldwork in Namibia. Another project investigates the buffering
effect of no-till agriculture on crop yield, nutrient use efficiency, and
leaching potential under drought conditions (USDA-funded). The positions
are available from August 2016, and will be supported through research and
teaching assistantships that provide a competitive stipend, tuition
remission and health insurance. The student(s) will be advised by Dr. Lixin
Wang (http://earthsciences.iupui.edu/~lxwang). The USDA project supported
student will be co-advised by Dr. Pierre-André Jacinthe and will work in
close collaboration with the Remote Sensing group led by Dr. Lin Li. Applicants
must hold a BS degree in earth sciences, hydrology, soil science,
environmental sciences or related disciplines, and have strong oral and
written communication skills.
IUPUI is Indiana’s premier urban public research university, currently
enrolling more than 30,000 students. In 2011, IUPUI was ranked 3rd by U.S.
News and World Report in “Up-and-Coming National Universities”.
Indianapolis is a very livable city with a wealth of outdoor, cultural, and
sporting activities. The department of Earth Sciences has a wide variety of
analytical facilities including LGR and Picarro water isotope analyzers,
IRMS facility for 13C, 15N and 34S measurements, CN analyzer, and wet
chemistry laboratories equipped for soil, water and plant analysis.
To apply, please send a copy of your application materials (statement of
interest, resume, unofficial transcripts, GRE score, TOEFL score if
applicable, and contact information of three referees) to Dr. Lixin Wang (
