Subject: Summer Research Assistants, Duke Biogeochemistry, Bernhardt Lab
The Bernhardt lab at Duke University is an interdisciplinary team conducting
aquatic and terrestrial biogeochemistry research. This summer we are
seeking enthusiastic and detail-oriented research assistants to join
several ongoing research projects exploring the effects of increased
salt-water incusion/intrusion on North Carolina's coastal ecosystem and
communities, how the rates and patterns of stream metabolism vary within
and across streams, how development configuration and connectivity
influences the delivery of stormwaters and storm-borne contaminants in
urban streams, and environmental implications of nanomaterials on ecosystem
Candidates will gain hands on experience with a variety of biogeochemistry
field sampling methods (e.g. water, soil, vegetation) in a variety of
systems throughout North Carolin=
a and beyond, as well as experience with sample processing and analytical
methods. Interns will be working with a large group of post-doctoral
associates, graduate students and research technicians affiliated with the
Bernhardt lab and Duke River Center.
Applicants must be comfortable spending long days outside and willing to endure
potentially strenuous field conditions. Undergraduate course work and prior
lab experience in biogeochemistry, ecology, and environmental science is
preferred but not required to apply.
Openings are full-time term positions available from May through August 2017.
Please specify your available start and end dates in your application. We
will be accepting application until Tuesday April 18,2017.
Please submit 1) a brief cover letter, 2) a single page resume and 3) contact
information for two references in a single PDF file to Steve Anderson (
