A NSERC-funded Ph.D. studentship available at Memorial University of 
Newfoundland (Canada):  Greenhouse gas emissions and their controls in boreal 
peatlands affected by agricultural drainage.

The studentship is available fully funded for four years. The expected start 
date is January or September 2018. Earlier start date can also be considered.  
The position will remain open until filled.

Your research work will include, but not limited to, (1) quantify greenhouse 
gas emissions from boreal peatlands affected by agricultural drainage; (2) 
measure the temporal and spatial variability of greenhouse gas emissions; (3) 
determine the biotic and abiotic regulatory factors and their relationships 
with greenhouse gas fluxes. You are also welcome to add new components into 
this project. The data will be collected using the eddy covariance system 
(LI-7200 and LI-7700) and static chamber measurement (LGR Ultraportable GHG 
analyzer or GC).

You need to have a Master's degree (or equivalent) in appropriate fields, for 
example, in soil science, ecology, earth system science, physical geography, 
hydrology, biogeochemistry, and micrometerology, or other suitable subjects. 
You are expected to have excellent oral and written skills in English, strong 
numerical analytical and statistical skill to analyze the large EC data and 
static chamber measurement data. You are required to regularly visit the sites 
year-round to collect gas samples from static chambers, and maintain the proper 
function of EC tower, analyze the sample in the lab, write high-quality 
manuscripts for publication in the high impact journals, present your work in 
international/national conferences, and fulfill other requirement for a Ph.D. 

Please see for 
further details about the Ph.D. programme. Please see for more details about 
the research group. Potential candidates are encouraged to send an informal 
copy of your application (including a letter of motivation/research statement, 
evidence of English Proficiency (if required for international students), 
up-to-date curriculum vitae, and unofficial transcripts to Dr. Jianghua Wu at<> with subject "Ph.D. 
studentship-Field", and short-listed applicants will be contacted to arrange 
phone/Skype interviews ASAP. ?
