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.
