The Valett Aquatic Ecosystem Laboratory at the University of Montana, Missoula, is accepting application from students interested in pursuing a PhD in Ecosystem Ecology through the Division of Biological Sciences. A recently funded 5-yr NSF EPSCoR grant will support collaborative sciences addressing water quality issues through the Montana Consortium for Research on Environmental Water Systems (MT CREWS; http://www.mtnsfepscor.org/projects/rii-track-1-consortium-research-envi...). Support of 3-5 years is available for a dedicated student interested in addressing river energetics and the interaction among metals contaminants and nutrient enrichment. Student research will be part the state-wide CREWS program with opportunity to bridge molecular, engineering, and ecological sciences. Support is available as soon as May 2018 and applications will be accepted until January 31, 2019. Interested students should provide: 1) a letter of intent, 2) updated CV, and 3) one letter of support to Dr. H. Maurice Valett via the following contact information:
