Graduate student opening in Fall 2017 to work on a NSF Funded Project -
Assessing climate-biosphere linkages using Late Holocene records of climate
variability and vegetation dynamics from the Brazilian Amazon and Savanna.
Research involves cave monitoring and paleoclimate reconstruction from cave
deposits (speleothems) in Brazil to reconstruct records of local moisture
variability to complement existing records of regional monsoon intensity.
This work is critical in constraining the role of climate in Holocene biome
shifts. Graduate support is competitive and includes full stipend and
tuition for at least 2 years. Students will work with Dr. Corinne Wong (
www.corinneiwong.com) in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science
at Boston College, and utilize a newly renovated state of the art clean
laboratory for isotope separation chemistry.
The deadline for admission is Jan 10th, 2016. Interested individuals should
contact Corinne Wong.
