The Wyatt Lab in the Department of Biology at Ball State University has

an opening for a NSF funded MS Graduate Research Assistantship to study

aquatic ecology in Alaskan wetlands. Ideally, the successful applicant

biogeochemistry). The field portion of the research will be conducted in

partnership with the Long-term Ecological Research Program at the

University of Alaska-Fairbanks and the position will require travel to

Alaska for summer research. Please see the lab website for more details:
