Jobs and Funding Opportunities

PhD Studentship in Water Engineering Dept. Architecture & Civil Engineering, University of Bath

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship at the University of Bath (UK) starting January 2015 for a project investigating controls on biogeochemical cycling in stratified lakes and reservoirs. The aim of this work is to quantify how the paired effects of turbulence and oxygen availability influence nutrient and metal concentrations and subsequent water quality and ecosystem health, both on local and global scales. Preference will be given to applications received before 15 July 2015.

Two PhD or M.Sc. Positions in Carbon Biogeochemistry in Freshwater Systems, Québe, Canada

Two funded graduate positions (M.Sc. or PhD) in carbon biogeochemistry of freshwater ecosystems are open to join Yves Prairie's laboratory at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Canada. The first project will focus on the coupling between physical, chemical and biological processes in determining lake ecosystem metabolism. It will rely in part on the analysis of high-frequency data from our experimental autonomous buoy. The second project will focus on the effects of climate change on lake metabolism, in particular through the alteration of the lake carbon cycle.

PhD Scholarship in Evolutionary Ecology, EAWAG, Switzerland

The student will be funded by a Swiss National Science Foundation grant, entitled “The eco-evolutionary dynamics of community assembly in aquatic ecosystems”. The aim of the project is to understand how ecological and evolutionary processes jointly drive community assembly in aquatic ecosystems. Applications must be submitted by 15 June 2014.

Data-Intensive Analysis and/or Modeling for Socio-Environmental Synthesis

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites proposals for data-intensive analysis and/or modeling projects that advance socio-environmental synthesis research. In addition to providing support for meetings and travel to SESYNC, the costs of the PI’s salary while in residence at SESYNC and/or salary for a research assistant may be covered. There are openings for computational postdoctoral researchers as well. Applications must be submitted by 4 August 2014 (5 p.m. U.S. EDT).

Environmental Policy Graduate Scholarships for Students from China, South Korea and Japan: Bard College

The Bard Center for Environmental Policy in New York State is pleased to announce the availability of new Henry Luce Foundation Scholarships for students from East Asia (China, Japan or South Korea) to complete a two-year Master of Science degree in Environmental Policy or Climate Science and Policy starting August 2014.

The LIASE Scholarships (Luce Initiative for Asian Studies and the Environment) provide a full tuition waiver in the first year, and at least 50% of tuition in the second year. Students are responsible for travel costs, and for expenses for room and board.

Postdoc in Freshwater Ecology, Washington State University

Dr. Stephanie Hampton's team at the Washington State University is seeking a postdoctoral associate for collaboration in freshwater research, with a general emphasis on highly quantitative approaches to understanding lake ecology, but with specific topics to be defined primarily by the successful candidate.
