PhD opportunity at Univ of New Hampshire (11/1/12)

Ph.D. opportunities in terrestrial ecosystem ecology at
the University of New Hampshire

The Hobbie lab invites applications to the UNH Natural Resources and Earth
Systems Science (NRESS) Ph.D. Program. We welcome inquiries from motivated
students interested in how the interactions of organisms with their
environment influence carbon and nutrient cycling. Our lab is an interactive
group with interests in ecosystem modeling, remote sensing, the application
of stable isotopes in ecology, and belowground processes, particularly
mycorrhizal fungi. We are currently looking for students on two projects,
one to work on a new global change experiment in northern Minnesota, another
to work on biogeochemical consequences of shrub expansion in the Arctic.
Incoming Ph.D. students are encouraged to develop their own research
projects in these areas. For more information on research projects in the
lab, please visit our website>.

Interested applicants should email Dr. Hobbie <>. The
deadline for domestic and international applications is Jan. 15, 2012. In
your email, include "Ph.D. opportunity" in the subject line, and a brief
statement of your current or future research interests (please be as
specific as you can), and a curriculum vitae. For information on applying to
the NRESS Program, visit
