Graduate Student Position in Biogeochemistry
Funding for a Ph.D. student is available starting Summer/Fall 2017 to work
on an NSF-funded project in Isotope Biogeochemistry lab at the University
of South Carolina. The goals of the project are to explore how microbes
survive and thrive in a warm, high pH serpentinization system, to
investigate the fate of deep sea organic matter as it passes through the
rocky subsurface, and to determine whether small organic molecules are
formed abiotically. This research has implications for the earliest
development of life on Earth and other planets, and on Earth’s carbon
cycle. Field work includes a 22-day oceanographic expedition with the
remotely operated vehicle Jason to the Lost City Hydrothermal Field.
Stipend and tuition support are available for the length of the project in
a combination of research and teaching assistantships. We are looking for a
motivated, curious, problem-solver who enjoys being in the lab and field. A
background in chemistry and/or isotopes, HPLC, GC, or IC is particularly
