*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
