AIMS is Recruiting 11 Graduate Students at 7 different US Universities in Stream Ecology

Expiration Date: 

The Aquatic Intermittency effects on Microbiomes in Streams (AIMS) team is seeking enthusiastic, qualified, diverse applicants for 11 graduate student positions across seven different institutions. Students will join a collaborative team of scientists focused on understanding the role of microbiomes and stream intermittency in controlling downstream water quality in the Mountain West, Great Plains, and Southeastern Forest ecosystems. All students will take a cross-institutional Team Science and Collaboration course in their first year, receive support for data science instructor training through The Carpentries Foundation, have opportunities to mentor undergraduate research projects, and will work with an amazing team of scientists.

Dr. Amy Burgin at the University of Kansas is the overall contact point for the project; if you have questions about the benefits of working on the AIMS project or how the project will be coordinated, please feel free to contact her at

Students will be recruited into graduate programs at the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, University of Oklahoma, Idaho State University, University of Alabama, University of Mississippi, and University of Southern Mississippi; more information about each position is available here:

AIMS is funded by an NSF-EPSCoR Track 2 Collaborative grant, more information is available here:
