Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

We are looking for highly motivated students to investigate greenhouse
gas emissions in Southeastern Florida grasslands within the framework of
a USDA project. Multiple topics are available and can further be
determined by discussion of the candidate with the principal
investigators of the project:

1) Field measurements of greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide,
nitrous oxide) in order to understand emission responses to management
practices and to climate variability and change
2) Laboratory experiments to track microbial greenhouse gas production
in response to warming and rainfall variability
3) Field and lab measurements of microbial community carbon consumption
and enzyme expression
4) Development and application of numerical models that quantify
microbial production of greenhouse gases under global change factors.
The work is highly collaborative, and we seek students who have interest
and motivation to shape a thesis that cuts across these broad themes and
investigation techniques.

Students will enroll in the Soil and Water Science Program, with tuition
waver and assistantship. Positions begin in August 2016. If this sparked
your interest, we are looking forward answer further question and/or
receive your application. Instructions on how to apply can be found on
