The Biometeorology and Soil Physics Laboratory at the University of
British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver has an opening for a MSc student
starting as soon as possible. We seek an enthusiastic and inquisitive
student who is interested in field work on measuring greenhouse gas
(GHG) (CH_4 , N_2 O, CO_2 ) fluxes in the root zone of agricultural
soils using chamber and gradient techniques, leading to a better
understanding the mechanisms and role of environmental variables and
management practices on GHG fluxes. Potential ecosystems include
blueberry, potato and forage fields in the Lower Fraser Valley. The
student will have the opportunity to work with experts in eddy
covariance and chamber techniques for measuring GHG fluxes and soil
respiration, as well as soil C and N dynamics. A research assistantship
is available for up to three years. Other financial sources include
teaching assistantships at UBC, and NSERC graduate student
scholarships/fellowships.

UBC is an equal opportunity educational and research institute, and is
strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community.

Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree with background in soil science or
other closely related fields with strong quantitative abilities,
proficiency in English, self-motivation and ability to do field work
independently and effectively as part of a team setting. Some
programming experience in MATLAB or R will be an asset.

To apply, send a CV, a cover letter stating your previous experience,
interest in this specific position and future goals, and names of at
least two references to Dr. T.A. Black. Review of applicants begins
immediately.
