Multiple lab, field, data management, and outreach positions for crowdsourced science at Pacific Northwest National Lab

Our river corridor research group at Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) has 5 job postings for post-Masters, post-Bachelors, and current undergraduate students. The positions are diverse and close in mid-December. All focus on crowdsourced science around river corridors. The postings range from hands-on field/lab work to data management to outreach across a broad range of stakeholders.

Post-Doctoral Position in Dryland Biogeochemical Research at University of Texas, El Paso

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) 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 dryland ecosystems. The primary goal for this position will be an increased understanding of nutrient cycling (with particular focus on phosphorus) in these carbonate rich dryland soils.

Invitation to join discussion on WHONDRS river sediment crowdsourced sampling campaign to maximize mutual benefit

Interested in river corridors, watersheds, biogeochemistry, or open science? We’re looking for your guidance on @WHONDRS (https://whondrs.pnnl.gov/) crowdsourced sampling. The sampling is informed by artificial intelligence models developed by Parallel Works (https://www.parallelworks.com/) using open data from WHONDRS and other community resources.

3x M.S./Ph.D. positions on water, agriculture, and communities in the eastern Great Plains

We are recruiting up to three graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.) to begin in summer/fall 2022 for a new USDA-funded project investigating how agriculture, water, and communities in the eastern Great Plains can manage and adapt to future climate conditions.

Doctoral Research Opportunity

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 weathering reactions in the basalt rock as a result of water flow, microbial community and plant development, as well as feedbacks to plant emergence and growth. It will be conducted at the Landscape Evolution Observatory at Biosphere 2.

Post Masters Intern - River Corridor Organic Matter and Hydro-Biogeochemistry

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, WA is seeking a highly motivated post-masters 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
