Northern Arizona University: PhD and MS positions in Ecosystem Ecology are available in the Center for Ecosystem Science in Society (Ecoss) at Northern Arizona University. The Ecoss mission is to conduct high-impact, innovative research on ecosystems and how they respond to and shape environmental change, to train next-gen scientists, and to communicate discovery and its relevance to people. Research opportunities are available in the following areas linked to specific Ecoss faculty: The impact of climate change on Alaskan ecosystems, including effects of changing fire and permafrost on plants, soils, and ecosystem services. Michelle Mack, Ted Schuur / How microorganisms shape the ecology of planet Earth, from soils to rivers to hot springs to humans, pushing science at the frontiers of molecular biology and ecosystem science, quantitative ecological synthesis, and ecosystem responses to environmental change. Bruce Hungate, Paul Dijkstra, Egbert Schwartz / Freshwater ecology, including the science of river restoration and dam removal, terrestrial aquatic interactions and food web ecology. Jane Marks / Exploring the interaction of water and carbon metabolism in diverse studies ranging from the limits to height growth of the world's tallest trees to drought responses of soil microorganisms. George Koch / Data-driven modeling and forecasting carbon and nitrogen cycles to global change at ecosystem, regional and global scales. Yiqi Luo / Terrestrial ecosystems and global change: above and below ground processes, plant carbon allocation, biosphere-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks, and phenology. Mariah Carbone, Andrew Richardson. Graduate student benefits include stipend (TA or RA), tuition waiver, health insurance, support for summer fieldwork in a variety of beautiful ecosystems, and winter in the peaks of sunny Flagstaff, AZ.
