M.S. RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP, ALGAL ECOLOGY
The Wyatt Lab in the Department of Biology at Ball State University has an opening for a MS level Graduate Research Assistant to study algal ecology in wetlands. Ideally, the successful applicant will have a background in algae, plant, and/or aquatic biology and chemistry and a willingness to work in both field and laboratory settings. The research assistantship will allow the qualified candidate the opportunity to work on cutting edge research on algal responses to climate change processes and the consequences of community alterations for biogeochemical cycling in wetlands. There are a number of specific research foci that can be addressed and study sites may include wetlands of boreal Alaska, the Laurentian Great Lakes, and central Indiana.
