The Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry lab of Indiana University-Purdue
University Indianapolis (IUPUI) seeks two 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 drought effects on
forest water use (USDA-funded) with fieldwork in Indiana. The positions are
available from Fall 2017, 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). 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. Stable isotope background is preferred for both positions.
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 (
