MS Graduate student in the biogeochemistry of N emissions from
agricultural practices

Department of Agronomy, Purdue University

Position available: May 2018

Description: Conduct measurements and analysis of NH3 and N2O gaseous
emissions from fertilized maize fields using micrometeorological methods
(eddy covariance, Lagrangian stochastic, accumulation methods).  The
project uses state-of-the-art long path (100m) lasers and a scanning
Fourier Transform spectrometer in combination with various closed-cell
gas sensors and meteorological and soil sensors. In addition, some
laboratory work will be required to support the field measurements which
may include characterization of soil biogeochemical properties.  The
long term project is in collaboration with cropping systems,
agricultural micrometeorology and soil biogeochemistry scientists.

Requirements: BS in agricultural meteorology, soils, chemistry, or
similar area.  Research involves primarily fieldwork with some
laboratory work. Evidence of experience with working in teams desired.

Salary:approximately $21K/year

Application: Submit: (1) cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, and (3)
