Graduate Student Opportunities in Bedrock Critical Zone Research

The Bedrock Critical Zone Network (CZN) team seeks graduate students to work on a new, NSF-funded project focused on understanding linkages between subsurface weathering, surface processes, and ecosystems across a network of sites in the coterminous United States. This is transdisciplinary work at the interface between water, rock, and life and involves collaboration with top scientists at eight institutions across the country.

A postdoc position on ecosystem-atmosphere carbon exchange at UTEP

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), in association with Boise State University, and the U.S.D.A. Agricultural Research Service (ARS), is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on a recently funded National Science Foundation 'Critical Zone Thematic Cluster' grant to study carbon fluxes, ecohydrology, and nutrient availability in the carbonate-dominated soils of dryland ecosystems. The project has sites in Texas, New Mexico, and Idaho.
