Ph.D or M.Sc Student in Biogeochemistry and Forest Carbon Cycle (May or September, 2018)
We have a PhD or M.Sc student opportunity available in our group starting May or September, 2018. The goal of this work is to explore the impacts of environmental events (e.g. drought and heatwaves) and management activities on forest biogeochemical processes with particular emphasis on soil carbon budget. Field work will take place in an age-sequence of temperate pine forests and a deciduous stand near Lake Erie in Southern Ontario, Canada. These sites are known as Turkey Point Flux Station or Turkey Point Observatory and are a part of global Fluxnet initiative. This position is funded through the Southern Forests Water Future project of the Global Water Futures initiative (https://gwf.usask.ca
). Students should apply by emailing a cover letter, resume and list of relevant courses to Dr. Altaf Arain at firstname.lastname@example.org
before January 15, 2018.
