Wetland Graduate Research Assistantships, University of Toledo

The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo is

offering two graduate research assistantships in environmental science and

ecology to begin in January 2018.  The positions are partially supported by

research grants funded by NOAA and Ohio Department of Natural Resources to

develop ecological indicators for measuring wetland ecosystem responses to

climatic variability and management practices.  The incumbent will use the

funded project to develop his/her MS/PhD thesis in wetland ecology and

management. The candidate should have an undergraduate degree in

environmental science, biology, or related fields by the end of 2017.

Depending on the interest of the incumbent, thesis/dissertation topic can

vary, but will be related to quantitative (statistical) modeling of wetland

services (e.g., nutrient retention, habitat) and the changes of such

service in response to short-term weather fluctuation and long-term climate

change.  The project will also involve the use of GIS and remote sensing
