Graduate positions (prefer PhD) are available to study how nutrient limitation influences forest ecosystem processes for early 2019. The project will leverage a nine-year field fertilization experiment that has enriched ecosystem phosphorus in an otherwise low phosphorus region. The main area of novel study is understanding how phosphorus influences the stabilization of soil organic matter and its role in mediating the nitrogen cycle. Other possible research areas include, but not limited to, plant-microbial interactions, forest productivity, and litter decomposition. Ideal candidates will be broadly trained in terrestrial ecology, but should have a background in plant ecology, soil ecology, biogeochemistry, or a related field.  If interested, please contact Dr. Jared DeForest ( in the Department of Environmental and Plant Biology at Ohio University for details on applying or the project.
