2 phd positions in biogeochemical dynamics terrestrial ecosystems (USA)

Two Ph.D. positions are available in the Naithani Lab https://sites.google.com/site/kjnaithani in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Arkansas, starting Fall 2015. The successful candidates will develop their Ph.D. projects combining field and modeling approaches to explore the spatio-temporal dynamics of biogeochemical cycling in terrestrial ecosystems. The Ph.D. position will be embedded in the research theme of the Naithani Lab but the focus of their chosen project is flexible.
Research in the Naithani Lab focuses on three complementary themes: (1)
understanding spatio-temporal dynamics of ecosystem structure and function,
2) upscaling carbon and water fluxes from plant to landscape, and 3)
understanding and modeling the influence of disturbance and global change
on socio-ecological systems. All current and past projects combine field
and modeling approaches. For more details, visit
