Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, WA is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate with a strong background centered around riverbed sediments, surface waters, or soils in terms of (1) detailed molecular properties of organic matter (e.g., assayed via mass spec, NMR, or other high resolution methods), (2) aerobic and anaerobic biogeochemistry, (3) integration of multi-omic data (e.g., metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metametabolomics) with metabolic m
Dear CZEN Colleagues:
I want to alert you to session 10e at the next Goldschmidt (June 21-26, in Honolulu) that Jon Chorover, Lou Derry and I are organizing in honor of Oliver Chadwick as he moves into retirement.
Please consider submitting an abstract to Session 10b, titled “Redox-sensitive biogeochemistry from pores to watersheds” that will be held at the Goldschmidt 2020 in Honolulu, Hawaii on June 21-26. This session is being conducted under Theme 10: Earth surface processes from chemical fronts to climate change. The session and theme descriptions are provided below. February 14, 2020 is the abstract submission deadline.
Dear Colleagues, We were funded by NSF for a Critical Zone Research Coordination Network this year. As part of our proposal, we’re hoping to increase the diversity, inclusion and access of researchers in “critical zone” science—earth surface sciences including hydrology, geology, atmospheric science, ecology, etc.—to bring in new ideas and new questions. We’re hoping to engage undergrads, grads, postdocs, and early career faculty, in particular!
Master of Science positions are available in the Environmental Mineralogy and Chemistry group (http://nicolasperdrial.weebly.com/) at the University of Vermont (https://www.uvm.edu/cas/geology) for the fall of 2020. The positions are fully supported through teaching assistantship and include summer stipend.
we would like to draw your attention to the upcoming session at EGU 2020 on "Experimental ecosystem development research and ecological model systems". The session description can be found here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/session/35084. Abstract submission is possible until 15 January 2020.
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas Geoscience Department is seeking applicants for its MS and PhD programs for Fall of 2020. Applications are due February 1, 2020.
