The Stable Isotope Ecology and Hydrology Lab in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) at Purdue University is seeking motivated graduate students (MS or PhD) and postdocs. Our group seeks to understand the effects of global change on terrestrial ecosystems and their feedbacks on the climate. We use field measurements, laboratory analysis and modeling to quantify the exchange of water and CO2 between the land biosphere and the atmosphere. Projects may include applications of stable isotopes to questions of atmospheric moisture sources and transport, hydrologic partitioning, plant physiology and source water use. This work is very interdisciplinary, and students with backgrounds in many fields will be considered. Women and under-represented minority students are especially encouraged to apply.
We are hiring 2 postdocs in the areas of Peruvian hydrology (collaboration with Dr. Marty Frisbee) and atmospheric deposition (collaboration with Dr. Greg Michalski). Positions may start as early as January 2019. This is part of the NEXUS institute and more information can be found here: https://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/arequipa-nexus/en/index.php
I am also looking for motivated graduate students. Students may enroll in one of two degree programs offered at Purdue: either through the Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science (EAPS) department or through an interdisciplinary graduate program in Ecological Sciences and Engineering (ESE).
Admissions deadlines: Deadline for applications for the fall are usually in early January, although interested students are encouraged to contact Lisa Welp (mailto:email@example.com) prior to that.
