We are seeking a motivated student to pursue a Ph.D. at University of Missouri. The successful applicant will be expected to take on a research project focused on stream biogeochemistry within the context of a larger, collaborative, multi-investigator project focused on the transfer of matter and energy across terrestrial-aquatic interfaces. Preference will be given to candidates with a background in biogeochemistry, ecosystem ecology, hydrological or nutrient transport modeling, chemistry, environmental science, or limnology.
