Motivated PhD and MSc students sought to lead cutting edge research projects related to stream ecology in human dominated landscapes and development of monitoring tools. Topics include ecological consequences of increasing nutrient loads to streams, importance of riparian forest cover to stream ecosystem resilience, application of environmental metabolomics to biomonitoring and development of effective stream assessment tools for streams in human dominated landscapes.
Freelance Technical Editor – Freshwater Science
Freshwater Science seeks two part-time technical editors (TE). Freshwater Science is published by the University of Chicago Press on behalf of the Society for Freshwater Science.

We would like to draw your attention to a summer NSF REU program in Interdisciplinary Research in Ecology, Environmental Chemistry and Ecosystem Health held at the University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL). We would greatly appreciate it if you would consider sharing this opportunity with your students and have included a flyer for posting and circulating. Our program is unique in that students have an outstanding opportunity to gain both field and lab experience working on the Savannah River Site.
An MS assistantship is available under the supervision of Dr. Dave Zanatta and Dr. Daelyn Woolnough in the Institute for Great Lakes Research and Department of Biology at Central Michigan University (CMU). The project will involve developing an environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring program for the endangered Snuffbox mussel in the Great Lakes drainage. Project funding is from US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and will involve a close collaboration with USFWS scientists.
