Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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.
