Two Ph.D. studentship available at Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada): Greenhouse gas emissions in boreal peatlands affected by agricultural draiange
Two Ph.D. studentships are available at the Terrestrial Biogeochemistry and Ecohydrology Research Group (TBERG) of Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada). The studentships are part of the project “Examining the impacts of agricultural drainage on carbon cycling of northern peatlands”, funded by NSERC. The studentships are available fully funded for four years, starting immediately or as early as possible.
The big research question that this project attempts to address is “how is the carbon cycling (carbon dioxide and methane) in northern peatlands altered by agricultural drainage and how can we incorporate the field observation-based knowledge into peatland ecosystem carbon models?”
Ph.D. 1: Examining the impacts of agricultural drainage on greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide) in boreal peatlands.
Your research work will include, but not limited to, (1) quantify greenhouse gas emissions from boreal peatlands affected by agricultural drainage; (2) measure the temporal and spatial variability of greenhouse gas emissions; (3) determine the biotic and abiotic regulatory factors and their relationships with greenhouse gas fluxes.
Ph.D. 2: Modeling the impacts of agricultural drainage on greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide and methane) in boreal peatlands.
If you are interested in either of the two positions, please send a letter of motivation/research statement, evidence of English Proficiency (if required for international students), up-to-date curriculum vitae, unofficial transcripts, and a copy of any publication (if available) to Dr. Jianghua Wu at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Ph.D. studentship”. Reviewing is started immediately after your files are received. For the suitable applicants, you will be contacted by email to encourage you to apply formally through the following link: http://www.mun.ca/become/graduate/programs/environmental.php, from which you can find the detailed information on the application process.
