Students, we want you!
We’re seeking motivated students to participate as part of an interdisciplinary, National Science Foundation-funded research project focused on understanding linkages between water management and aquatic ecosystem function in freshwater reservoirs. The project, a collaboration between ecologists, economists, and engineers, will use reservoir water management as a test-case to understand how the environment, society, and new knowledge interact to shape rule-following, rule-bending and rule-reformulation behaviors, and how, in-turn, these behaviors affect reservoir ecosystem responses.
Graduate student applicants will have the opportunity to develop a research focus in one of the following areas: aquatic greenhouse gas emissions, water quality, harmful algal blooms, and/or aquatic invasive species. Admission requirements and application materials for WSU Vancouver’s Natural Science degrees are available on the WSU Vancouver Natural Sciences website. All other information regarding graduate admission can be found here.
Undergraduate researchers will have the chance to study how water level fluctuations affect aquatic greenhouse gas emissions, water quality, harmful algal blooms, and/or aquatic invasive species. Please contact John Harrison if you’re interested in participating.
We are seeking a Field/Lab Manager to help with biogeochemical sampling and analysis. More information about this opportunity and how to apply can be found here.
