PhD position ($) in Olso, Norway and another PhD position ($) in Lund, Sweeden. As part of the Norwegian-Swedish research project WINTERPROOF. We are seeking prospective PhD students interested in the modeling of snow-permafrost-vegetation interactions in the Arctic and their potential to lead to climate feedbacks. We have one PhD position available at the Department of Geosciences of the University of Oslo, Norway, and another at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science of Lund University, Sweden. The tools used in this project will be the land surface models CLM (in Oslo) and LPJ-GUESS (in Lund) and our focus will be from the regional to the pan-Arctic scale. The deadline for applications is May 15th. See Individual announcements directly at PhD Description in Oslo and PhD Description and Application Instructions in Lund.

A Post-Doc ($$) fellow to explore and synthesize carbon, water and energy fluxes made with the eddy covariance technique at different Canadian tundra ecosystems. The position is based at Carleton University or Université de Montréal starting immediately. Ideal applicants for the position have (1) A PhD in a related discipline (biometeorology, geography, geosciences, environmental science, ecology, physics, etc), (2) proven experience analyzing and interpreting large energy and/or trace gas flux datasets, (3) a willingness to travel to and work at northern field sites (if the need arises), (4) the ability to work independently and effectively as part of a team setting consisting of researchers from various Canadian universities and territorial and federal government agencies, and (5) proficiency in English (Note that the Université de Montréal is a francophone research university, so knowledge of French is of great advantage but not mandatory). The application package should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including a list of publications/presentations), an English writing sample (ideally a publication), copies of academic credentials, and names and contact information of at least two referees. Please email the application package and any questions to: elyn.humphreys *at* cunet.carleton.ca and oliver.sonnentag *at* umontreal.ca. The review of applications will commence immediately until the position is filled. 

M.S. student assistantship available – salt marsh carbon cycling. The O’Halloran lab in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation at Clemson University currently has an opening for an M.S. student starting in fall of 2018.  We seek an enthusiastic and inquisitive student who is interested in understanding carbon cycling in the salt marshes of coastal South Carolina. The student will join an ongoing project funded by the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium in the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in collaboration with Dr. Erik Smith at the University of South Carolina. The student will take courses on Clemson’s main campus during the academic year and spend summers in residence at the Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science to conduct fieldwork and writing.  A full research assistantship (including stipend and tuition waver) is available for two years. Required Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in a natural science field with strong quantitative abilities and self-motivation. Preferred Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in ecology, biology, marine science, atmospheric science or other closely related environmental science.  Programming experience in MATLAB or R.  Fieldwork experience in ecology/marine science. To apply, send a CV, unofficial GRE and TOEFL scores (if available) and a cover letter stating your previous experience, interest in this specific position, and future goals to Dr. O’Halloran by May 25.  Contact info and more details about the lab and our clusters of eddy covariance towers are available here: http://tinyurl.com/ohalloranlab

Ph.D. student assistantship available – carbon cycling in longleaf pine and other coastal ecosystems. The O’Halloran lab in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation at Clemson University currently has an opening for a Ph.D. student starting in fall of 2018.  We seek an enthusiastic and inquisitive student who is interested in understanding carbon cycling in the longleaf pine forests of coastal South Carolina. The student will have the opportunity to create their own research project out of several ongoing funded activities, primarily in coastal South Carolina, using a new cluster of AmeriFlux sites that include pristine salt marsh and a mature longleaf pine forest. The student will also have the opportunity to work with another cluster of eddy flux towers that comprise a biofuels experiment in central Virginia. After completing coursework on main campus the student will relocate to the Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science to join the lab group at the coast and complete their fieldwork and writing.  A full research assistantship (including stipend and tuition waver) is available for three years. Required Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in forestry, ecology, atmospheric science or other closely related environmental science with strong quantitative abilities and self-motivation. Preferred Qualifications: M.S. degree (highly preferred) in forestry, ecology, atmospheric science or other closely related environmental science.  Programming experience in MATLAB or R.  Fieldwork experience in ecology or forestry. To apply, send a CV, unofficial GRE and TOEFL scores (if available) and a cover letter stating your previous experience, interest in this specific position, and future goals to Dr. O’Halloran by May 25.  Contact info and more details about the lab are available here: http://tinyurl.com/ohalloranlab
