MS student for mangrove ecology

Clemson University is seeking a highly motivated BS graduate to study mangrove ecosystem ecology at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in south Florida. This experimental research will assist scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in linking nutrient amendment (N and P) as a physiological stress to water use in the refuge’s 3 mangrove species. Methodology learned OTJ will include use of Dynamax sap flow equipment, and Li-Cor units for measuring leaf-level transpiration, net photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, and soil gas flux. This opportunity includes a $17k annual stipend for up to 2.5 years with good potential for further development into a Ph.D. study if additional funding is acquired. Time will be spent in south Florida (~1/3 of the time), in addition to campus. Please remit by 15 May 2019: cover letter, current CV, and unofficial transcript(s) to Dr. Jamie A. Duberstein (
