Graduate opportunities in ecosystem ecology (USA)

Graduate opportunities are available in the area of ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, and stable isotope ecology. The first project examines emission sources and impacts on ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest. This is a collaborative project with scientists from the National Park Service. The second project is in collaboration with Prof. John Bishop ( and examines recovery of ecosystem processes during primary succession. The fieldwork for the project will be at Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and successful applicants will join an active research team with ongoing projects at the site. 
 The successful applicants must be capable of field work for extended periods. Support is provided by internal assistantships and graduate endowments in the School of Biological Sciences ( at Washington State University. Successful applicants will join a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary group with the opportunity to focus on nitrogen dynamics ( and Earth Systems Modeling ( 
The WSU Stable Isotope Core Facility is also a state-of-the-art research facility with five mass spectrometers and supporting equipment. 
 Washington State University is a land grant, comprehensive research institution with an enrollment of over 27,000 students with state-of-the-art facilities in ecology. The University is one of the largest residential universities in the West and is in close proximity to both the Northern Rocky Mountains and the Cascade Range. Pullman and nearby Moscow provide a friendly, small-town living environment. Close collaborations also exist with ecologists at the University of Idaho, which is a land grant research university of 12,500 students located eight miles away. For further information please contact Prof. R. Dave Evans ( in the School of Biological Sciences.
