The Helton Lab seeks a PhD student at The University of Connecticut, advised by Dr. Ashley Helton ([email protected]; www.ashleyhelton.weebly.com). The student’s project will focus on understanding headwater stream carbon dynamics and their response to rising temperatures at the stream reach and river network scales. The student will work closely with PIs and students at collaborating universities and will have opportunities to travel to field sites in North Carolina. Prior experience in GIS, simulation modeling (or a strong quantitative background), and stream or landscape ecology preferred. The position includes a competitive stipend, tuition, and health insurance.
To apply, e-mail Dr. Helton a 1 page description of your research interests. Please also send your CV (including GPA and GRE scores), a recent transcript (unofficial is OK), and names and contact information of three references.
