Subject: Ph.D. Research Assistantships - Stream Ecosystems and Climate
PhD Assistantships Responses to Stream Warming: Food Webs (University
Carbon Dynamics (University of Georgia); and Metabolism and Carbon Emissions
(Virginia Tech), starting spring or fall 2018
We are seeking enthusiastic and qualified applicants to join our research team
investigating the effects of climate warming on macroinvertebrate communities,
stream carbon dynamics and ecosystem metabolism/carbon emissions in a new
project funded by the National Science Foundation. The larger scope of the
project includes microbial to whole-stream reach
responses to temperature that will be used to predict future network-scale
fates of carbon, using a multi-scale design that includes a paired-catchment
whole-stream warming experiment, an array of warmed streamside channels,
laboratory studies of aquatic microbes, and reach- and network-scale
modeling. Fieldwork will take place in the Southern Appalachians at the USDA
Forest Service Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory, North Carolina. Students will
engage in multiple aspects of research and will also develop their own
research questions under the overall theme of global change and thermal
effects in stream ecosystems.
Prospective students interested in the Food Web position should contact Dr.
Jon Benstead (jbenstead at ua.edu) at the University of Alabama. Those
interested in the Carbon Dynamics position should contact Dr. Amy Rosemond (
rosemond at uga.edu) at the University of Georgia, and prospective students
interested in the Metabolism and Carbon Emissions position should contact Dr.
Erin Hotchkiss (ehotchkiss at vt.edu).
Please send an email with 1) a CV and 2) a letter of interest by December 1
for full consideration. Include a description of your education, research and
work experience and perceived fit for the position. These positions are
open until filled; desired start date is on or before August 1, 2018. Each
position includes a competitive stipend, health insurance and tuition wai
