Ph.D Fellowship - Alpine Limnology

Graduate Fellowship Opportunities at UC Riverside

The Department of Environmental Sciences at UC Riverside is seeking graduate students to work on NSF-sponsored investigations of paleolimnology and isotope biogeochemistry of the Sierra Nevada. This work builds on the more than 30-year record of limnological and watershed research conducted at Emerald Lake in Sequoia National Park (http://ccb.ucr.edu/emeraldlake/index.html). These Ph.D Fellowships include a monthly stipend, full tuition and fees and funds to conduct research.

Education and experience – An MS or BS degree in aquatic ecology, hydrology, limnology, or similar discipline is required. Experience in paleolimnology and stable isotopes desired. Candidates must have the ability to work at remote field sites. Applicants should e-mail, in a single pdf file, to Dr. J. Sickman at UC Riverside (jsickman@ucr.edu): i) a cover letter describing their education, research experience and career goals, ii) a CV and iii) list of references including contact information.
