    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
