Open PhD Positions in Surface-Groundwater Interactions, Environmental Transport in Human

Impacted Landscapes – Indiana University

Three funded positions for PhD students are available at Indiana University, for students to peruse their

Ph.D. in Environmental Science. I am currently seeking motivated students for the following projects:

1. Implications of dynamic hydrological connectivity of landscape elements for the transport and

fate of carbon and nitrogen in intensively managed landscapes. Connectivity between surface-
and groundwaters, and dynamics of that connectivity through seasonal and storm event forcing, is

of particular interest. This position is part of the NSF-funded by the Intensively Managed

Landscapes Critical Zone Observatory.

2. Quantifying the exposure of aquatic ecosystems to contaminants of emerging concern,

particularly synthetic testosterones described in a recent Science article. This student will work

with a multi-disciplinary team including analytical chemists and environmental engineers focused

on coupling laboratory and field observations. The position is funded by a USDA-AFRI grant.

3. Quantifying variability in water quality and quantity outcomes as a function of human land

management decisions. This student will work with a team of social scientists, political

scientists, hydrologists, and economists to understand the decision making process for land

managers in the agricultural Midwest, and how governmental structures can be used to manage

these resources. (very much in the spirit of IU’s Ostrom Workshop). This project is funded by an

award through the NSF Water Sustainability and Climate program.

Each of these projects blends hydrologic science with other disciplines, and have implications for how

managed landscapes function in comparison to their more pristine (or less impacted) counterparts.

Students in my group should expect to include both a field and numerical modeling component in their

research, and be excited to work on interdisciplinary teams that bridge disciplines.

Students in these positions would be primarily affiliated with the School of Public and Environmental

Affairs (SPEA) at Indiana University. SPEA is a unique school, with an emphasis on both disciplinary

Environmental Science research as well as bridging public policy and environmental science disciplines.

Details about my research group can be found here, and a summary of what PhD students can expect of

me, and what I expect of them, are summarized here. For students who do not currently have an M.S., we

have a mechanism by which you can earn your M.S. while on the path to your Ph.D.

For all positions, I expect students will take advantage of our established partnership with TU Delft (both

PhD and MS students can participate in this partnership), spending one semester on the TU Delft campus

in the Netherlands completing coursework in hydrology and/or water resources management.

Additionally, my students commonly complete coursework outside of our discipline, whether that is

another specialization within SPEA (e.g., public policy) or on campus (e.g., aquatic ecology, geography,

geoscience).

Questions about these positions can be sent to adamward@indiana.edu, or by phone at 812-856-4820.

I look forward to hearing from exciting, energetic students who are interested in these topics.

[ECOLOG-L] Postdoctoral Position: Ecosystem Services of Restoration

Postdoctoral Position in Ecosystem Services of Restoration to work on
project entitled “Liko Na Pilina: Developing Novel Ecosystems that Enhance
Carbon Storage, Native Biodiversity, and Human Mobility in Lowland Hawaiian
Forests”

A postdoctoral research position is available for an individual interested
in melding plant functional trait theory, restoration planning, ecosystem
services, and computer modeling. The experimental study already underway
tests four different treatment combinations (species mixtures) for tropical
lowland wet forest restoration based on species’ functional traits.
Management efforts to return to pre-historic states have not been effective
and the current experiment involves a mix of native and non-native species.
The goal of the postdoctoral position is to apply functional ecology and
ecosystem service concepts, including modeling, to determine the efficacy of
the treatments in providing ecosystem services, especially carbon storage
and invasion resistance. Strong computer skills a must as the position
involves developing and programming two computer models: 1) a model to help
managers determine appropriate species for restoration using information
about species’ functional traits, and 2) applying biodiversity and
ecosystem-level data being collected on tree growth, litterfall, soils, and
regeneration into quantitative ecosystem service assessments.
The position will be based at the USDA Forest Service, Institute of Pacific
Islands Forestry office in Hilo Hawaii. The successful candidate will work
closely with project investigators Dr. Rebecca Ostertag, University of
Hawaii at Hilo, Dr. Susan Cordell, USDAFS, PSW-Institute of Pacific Islands,
Forestry, and Dr. Peter Vitousek, Stanford University. In addition the
candidate will supervise and/or mentor field technicians, graduate and
undergraduate research assistants, as needed. Responsibilities will include
conceiving and implementing the ecosystem services assessment, which will
yield publications, databases, and models; and organizing a workshop for
model end-users. Development of additional areas of interest that conform
with the scope of the research project will be encouraged.
Funding is available for approximately 2 years, depending on start date. A
Ph.D. in Ecology, Forestry, Ecological Economics, or equivalent is required.
Technical skills desired include: Strong quantitative skills in multivariate
statistics, computing, and GIS, expertise in data management and databases;
and an intimate understanding of ecosystem services theory and practice, and
an ability to apply information towards plant functional trait theory and
restoration. Postdoc will assist with field work when needed so good
physical stamina for extended hours of field work under hot and sunny (or
cool and rainy) conditions is a must. This postdoc position is part of a
multi-year Department of Defense, Strategic Environmental Research and
Development Program-funded research grant. A lay-person summary of the
project can be found at

http://ift.tt/1rcoqoe.

Additional information and application materials will be forwarded upon
request. Review of applications has began and is ongoing (Start date can be
as early as mid-Nov 2014). Interested candidates should contact Dr. Susan
