M.S. opportunity, ecohydrology for sustainable agriculture, University of Kansas

Description: The HydroEcology of Anthropogenic Landscapes group at the Kansas Geological Survey (HEAL@KGS) is searching for an M.S. student interested in applying cutting-edge hydrologic, agronomic, and data science techniques to address real-world challenges.

Doctoral Research Opportunity starting Fall 2021

University of Arizona is looking for a PhD student to work on the project entitled “Rock-plant interactions driving early soil development and landscape evolution”. The work will examine the effect of vascular plants and plant-microbe interactions on weathering reactions in the basalt rock as a result of water flow and plant development, as well as feedbacks to plant emergence and growth. It will be conducted at the Landscape Evolution Observatory at Biosphere 2.

PhD opportunity: Dynamics of organic and inorganic carbon in carbonate soils

The Rock-Eval® (RE) thermal analysis was developed at IFPEN during the 1970’s as a standard benchmark tool in oil exploration, and became more and more frequently used during the last 20 years in soil science in order to characterize soil organic matter and its thermal stability. While soil organic carbon (C) is a well-established research topic in agriculture and climate concerns, inorganic C remains disregarded.
