We are seeking a motivated student to pursue a Ph.D. (although exceptional M.S. applicants will also be considered) at Washington State University Vancouver, as part of a National Science Foundation-funded project investigating Innovations at the Food-Energy-Water nexus in the Columbia River Basin (https://fewstorage.wsu.edu/).  The successful applicant will be expected to take on a research project focused on watershed biogeochemistry within the context of a larger, collaborative, multi-year, multi-investigator project focused on the relationship between water, food, and energy storage capacity and resilience.  The student will be based at WSU Vancouver as a member of Dr. John Harrison’s Watershed Biogeochemistry and Global Change Laboratory (https://labs.wsu.edu/gcwblab/), but there will be ample opportunities to interact with other project scientists as well.  Preference will be given to candidates with a background in biogeochemistry, ecosystem ecology, hydrological or nutrient transport modeling, chemistry, environmental science, or limnology.  Ideally, we are looking for a student to start in August 2017.  If interested, please contact Dr. John Harrison (john_harrison@wsu.edu). 

Admission requirements and application materials for the Ph.D. in Environmental Science at WSU Vancouver are available at http://cas.vancouver.wsu.edu/environmental-science. If preferred, a Ph.D. degree in Geology is also an option; see WSU School of the Environment homepage: http://cahnrs.wsu.edu/soe/graduatestudies/.

Students will be supported by teaching and research assistantships and tuition waivers.  Washington State University Vancouver is a vibrant, rapidly growing institution located within the greater Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area, near the Columbia River, Cascade Mountains and Pacific Ocean, and offers an exceptional quality of life.
