Graduate Research Assistantships in Global Change/Ecosystem-Atmosphere Interactions

University of Minnesota
Two graduate research assistantships are available for Ph.D. students interested in global change and/or ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. Students with a background in any relevant field of biological or physical sciences or engineering and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research are encouraged to apply. The first assistantship will support research related to understanding how human modifications of ecosystem structure affect carbon and water cycling from developed land. The second will support research related to vegetation-climate-carbon cycle interactions in the Arctic. The Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior program is one of the National Research Council top-ranked graduate programs in the U.S. In addition, the University of Minnesota Biosphere-Atmosphere Interactions group (, a collegial group of 14 faculty members from across the campus, provides excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary training. Graduate research assistantships provide a full tuition waiver, a stipend, and benefits. For more information or to apply, please contact Dr. Joe McFadden (, University of Minnesota, 100 Ecology Building, 1987 Upper Buford Circle, St. Paul, MN 55108.
