Graduate Research Assistantships

GRA Position #528 - Soil Science

A graduate research assistantship is available for a project involving the development of automated, in-situ soil sensors and automated root-imaging cameras. The assistantship is part of a multi-institutional, NSF-funded project. The primary responsibilities of the successful candidate will involve: 1) building and calibrating minirhizotron-based planar optode oxygen sensors, 2) developing an automated minirhizotron camera system capable of imaging planar optodes and roots, and 3) oversee testing of and experimentation with the system under lab and field conditions.

Date Available: Spring 2019

GRA Position #529 - Soil and Environmental Chemistry

A graduate research assistantship (Ph.D.) is available immediately for a project involves significant utilization of standard inorganic soil analyses as well as advanced spectroscopic analyses. The successful candidate will perform studies on in situ stabilization of mildly lead contaminated soils to help an interdisciplinary research team to reduce child lead exposure in the exterior of their homes.
