Prospective Graduate Students
Graduate assistantships are available in Dr. John Harrison’s watershed biogeochemistry research group at Washington State University’s Vancouver Campus. We are seeking independent, motivated students with an interest in biogeochemistry and/or land-water interactions. These assistantships are available primarily for M.S. students, but exceptional Ph.D. candidates will also be considered. Prospective students should have a strong background in the physical sciences (including at least a year of undergraduate chemistry) and a dedication to research that improves understanding and management of aquatic and/or land-based resources. Experience with or interest in conducting fieldwork will be considered favorably. Admission requirements and application materials for WSU Vancouver’s M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Science are available on the WSU Vancouver Natural Sciences website. M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Geology are also an option, and more information on these is available at the homepage for WSU’s School of the Environment. Interested parties should either apply directly to WSU Vancouver or contact John Harrison for additional information.
**Also, a graduate position focused on biogeochemistry of the Columbia River’s Food-Energy-Water nexus is available now! Click this link for more information: Grad_Student_Ad_2017_Harrison_NSF-INFEWS (posted 4/12/17).**
