The EcoHydro Engineering Group at Oregon State University (
http://agsci.oregonstate.edu/ecohydro) directed by Dr. Stephen Good is
currently recruiting PhD Students for a funded research examining plant
hydraulic traits and soil moisture dynamics.  Support is available for
highly motivated PhD students with strong backgrounds that span
engineering, geosciences, ecology, computer science, mathematics, and
similar fields.  Candidates with an M.S. degree and strong skills in
programing or large data set analysis are sought.  Interested candidates
should contact Dr. Good and apply for Fall 2017 admission through the
interdisciplinary Water Resources Graduate Program (
http://oregonstate.edu/gradwater/) or the Biological and Ecological
Engineering Department (http://bee.oregonstate.edu/programs/graduate) at
Oregon State University.


Dr. Gerrad Jones will be starting a research group at Oregon State
University in the Department of Biological and Ecological Engineering and
is looking for a creative and highly motivated Ph.D. or M.S. student to
start in the Fall of 2017. The project will combine laboratory analyses,
field work, and advanced data analytics in order to identify the unknown
compounds driving estrogenicity in surface bodies of water. This is a
highly interdisciplinary project, and the primary responsibility of the
student will be to analyze the mass spectra of water samples collected
throughout Oregon using machine learning tools. The candidate should be
able to program in R (or some other programming language) and have a strong
working knowledge of multivariate statistics. Preferably, the candidate
would have experience with one or more of the following areas: mass spec
analysis, ecotoxicology, ArcGIS, and be willing and capable of doing field
work. Candidates should have an M.S. degree in an environmentally related
field; however, all students with a background in math, statistics,
science, or engineering who are creative, enthusiastic, and hardworking are
highly encouraged to apply. For more information, please contact Dr. Jones
directly (Gerrad.Jones at eawag.ch), and for more information on his research
interests, please read his profile at his current research group at Eawag (
