Multiple Funded Positions Available

photo of stream weir at low and high flows I am recruiting multiple funded graduate and post doc positions. Applications are being accepted from prospective masters and PhD students. There are broad opportunities to work with sensors and lots of data to solve water quality problems and understand carbon cycling in freshwaters. If you want to conduct research that generates applied solutions and emphasizes citizen engagement, you are encouraged to apply.

Opportunities Include:

  • Apply national networks of in situ water sensors (including NEON and USGS) to model microbial and photo-oxidation of organic matter.
  • Use sensor networks to model and predict water quality in midwestern lakes at risk for eutrophication.
  • Understand landscape controls on methane production using high resolution LiDAR and bathymetry.

Start Date: January-August 2021

Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry, env.science, computer science or similar (broadly interpreted).

To Apply: Send cover letter, C.V., and contact information for three references to Jake Hosen (jhosen@purdue.edu). Purdue University is an EEO/AA employer. All individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. Water sensors ready for citizen science
