Interested in the connection between math, data, and biogeochemistry? This might be a great lab to do your PhD in!
Our lab focuses on predicting soil biogeochemical dynamics under a changing climate. Research focuses on soil carbon dynamics from the pore to globe scales, spanning systems from coastal marshes to dry grasslands to boreal forests. We develop new models that explicitly represent the biological, chemical and physical processes governing soil biogeochemistry. We lead collaborative networks creating new data collections to address the growing need for diverse global datasets in soil models.
The ideal applicate should either have a background in biogeochemistry with a strong interest in modeling and informatics OR a background in mathematics/computer science with a strong interest in soils. Applicants must have excellent written and oral communication skills. Applicants from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Assistantships include stipend, tuition, and benefits. Interested applicants should email Dr Todd-Brown a copy of their CV and a brief cover letter outlining their interests and suitability for the assistantship.
