There is a graduate assistantship opportunity in the Department of Crop and Soil Science at Oregon State University. This position focuses on nutrient/water management and soil health for irrigated crops. Feel free to circulate this information to someone who might be interested in it. For more information about this position, please contact Dr. Ruijun Qin (email@example.com).
DOE’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) has solicited white papers (due mid-February) on Artificial Intelligence for Earth System Predictability (AI4ESP) to guide plans for workshops in 2021.
We are seeking for two PhD students and two MS students to join an NSF funded “Signals in Soils” project and characterize biotic and abiotic CO2 fluxes from irrigated dryland agricultural systems in the Rio Grande Valley at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).
The John Wesley Powell Center for Earth System Science Analysis and Synthesis fosters innovative thinking in Earth system science through collaborative synthesis activities. This mission is driven by the recognition that synthesis is critical to solving complex problems facing Society.

The Mid-scale group will be holding informational sessions with the PI community in the near future and the dates will be posted.
Belmont Forum Open Call: Towards Sustainability of Soils and Groundwater for Society
The Belmont Forum is pleased to announce the launch of a collaborative research call on the theme: Towards Sustainability of Soils and Groundwater for Society. The goal of this CRA is to produce the necessary knowledge and propose solutions to maintain well-functioning soils and groundwater systems in the Critical Zone, or rehabilitate them where degraded, through:
A new postdoctoral researcher position is available at Washington State University in Vancouver, WA, in Urban Ecohydrology, Global Environmental Change, or a related field such as Urban Environmental Biophysics/Ecophysiology, Urban Environmental Modeling, or Remote Sensing Data Analytics. (This is in addition to the first such position, previously advertised in 2019.)
Description: PhD opportunity to conduct research exploring tree-mediated methane emission in freshwater wetlands in Australia. Wetlands are among earth's most efficient ecosystems for carbon sequestration, yet this capacity can be offset by emission of methane. Recent research indicates that wetland trees can be a significant, yet largely unquantified, pathway for methane emissions.
