We are recruiting!

We have grants to recruit new MS or PhD students to start in fall 2023.

Our ecosystem ecology and soil biogeochemistry group is seeking applicants for a PhD position to begin in fall 23. The student will work in the area of climate-smart agriculture with a large interdisciplinary team. Research will focus on controls on nitrous oxide fluxes from agricultural fields to the atmosphere. This could include basic research on the nitrogen cycle or more applied studies identifying agricultural practices that reduce nitrous oxide emissions.  Links to soil carbon sequestration and carbon dioxide fluxes are also possible.  Students may apply to the Graduate Program in Soil Science or the Inter-College Graduate Degree Program in Ecology.  The assistantship includes a competitive stipend, full tuition waiver, and health benefits. Contact Jason Kaye for questions and discussion about the lab/position.

For Ph.D. students, either the Soil Science or Ecology degrees can be combined with the Biogeochemistry Dual Title Degree program (http://www.biogeochemistry.psu.edu/).
