PhD position in Great Lakes limnology and sensor technologies
Department of Biology/Institute for a Sustainable Environment at Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York
Closing Date: Until Filled
The Department of Biology at Clarkson University has a graduate Teaching Assistantship beginning in August 2016 available to a full-time student interested in pursuing a PhD in either Interdisciplinary Bioscience & Biotechnology (IB&B) or Environmental Science & Engineering (ESE). The Teaching Assistantship includes a generous 12-month stipend that is eligible for annual renewal based on satisfactory performance as a teaching assistant in the Department of Biology and a tuition waiver.
The successful applicant’s dissertation is expected to focus on the REASON project (http://www.clarkson.edu/ise/great_rivers1/index.html
), a high resolution water quality sensor network being constructed on the St. Lawrence River, which will form the basis of their thesis dissertation. The student will gain valuable training and experience in Great Lakes limnology and the use of emerging technologies used for assessing the impact of a changing environment on water quality.
To be eligible for consideration, students must be accepted to either the Interdisciplinary Bioscience & Biotechnology degree program in the Department of Biology or the Environmental Science & Engineering program in the Institute for a Sustainable Environment at Clarkson University as a full-time student, with approval of the REASON project supervisor, Professor Michael Twiss.
