Terrestrial Ecosystem Responses and Feedbacks to Climate Change
Texas Tech University, Department of Biological Sciences, Lubbock, TX
I am looking for motivated PhD or Masters students interested in exploring terrestrial
ecosystem responses and feedbacks to climate change. In my lab, we use a combination
of empirical, theoretical, and simulation studies to examine feedbacks between terrestrial
plants and soils and the Earth's climate system. You will have the opportunity to work on a
variety of topics at a number of different scales, from the leaf to the globe. Topics
currently being studied in the lab include:
- Photosynthetic acclimation to climate change
- Physiological mechanisms underlying plant biomass responses to nutrient addition
- Mechanistic models of plant respiration
- Land use decision - climate feedbacks
- Agricultural responses to climate
- Development of next generation land surface models
More information about the lab is at www.smithecophyslab.com.
The lab has financial support for multiple students through a combination of research and
Requirements: (1) Bachelor's degree in a relevant field, including, but not limited to
Ecology, Botany, Environmental Science, Microbiology, Atmospheric Science, Geoscience,
Physics, Computer Science, or Statistics; (2) interest in gaining empirical and modeling
skills; (3) curiosity about how the natural world works; (4) ability to work independently
Interested students are encouraged to first contact Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Positions are available starting as early as Summer 2018.
