PhD Position in Watershed Biochemistry via Society for Freshwater Science

University of New Hampshire

Durham, NH, US

The ECOSHEDS lab at the University of New Hampshire is recruiting a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire through the NRESS program. The student will be part of a project examining how changing patterns of atmospheric deposition interact with climate variability to influence watershed and riverine exports and biogeochemical cycles. The student will have access to multiple stream chemistry data sets including those generated via long-term hydrological observatories and high-frequency water quality sensor records. Opportunities for field work will also be available. The ideal candidate will possess strong quantitative and writing skills and be proficient in computer programming languages (e.g., R or Phyton). The ideal candidate will be self-motivated and will bring a spirit of collaboration. The ECOSHEDS lab is fully committed to anti-racism and believes strongly in the power of diversity, equality, and inclusivity. Students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. To apply please include a brief letter of introduction, CV, and three names and contact information for reference contacts to Adam Wymore ([email protected]).

UNH is home to a vibrant community of productive researchers with a strong commitment to student success (see http://www.unh.edu/unhtoday/2017/03/excellence-ecology for recent accolades). Located in the town of Durham, UNH is a beautiful campus surrounded by forest and natural landscapes. Only 30 minutes from the sea and less than 2 hours from the White Mountains, outdoor and other recreational activities abound, including right on campus. UNH strives to be a welcoming and inclusive workspace. We encourage working collaboratively towards a mission of understanding how the natural world, and our interactions with it, works. We also have the goal of expanding the diversity of students and perspectives. Students that are underrepresented in the natural sciences and STEM fields are especially encouraged to apply for these graduate positions.
