Opportunity for graduate study in microbial ecology at Baylor

 

Please pass this along to any interested students or colleagues with

students planning to attend graduate school in the near future.

 

I am actively recruiting motivated graduate students (Ph.D. or outstandin=

g

M.S. students) for my new laboratory in the Department of Biology at Bayl=

or

University. Research in my lab focuses on the dynamics of microbial

communities along with environmental gradients such as biogeochemical

parameters and spatial distribution. Research in my lab will involve fiel=

d

work (sampling and survey), lab work (genomic, transcriptomic and chemica=

l

analyses) and computational work (multivariate statistics, geostatistics =

and

statistical modeling). My lab will become a part of an active

interdisciplinary research effort, Center for Reservoir and Aquatic Syste=

ms

Research (CRASR, www.baylor.edu/crasr), which will provide active

collaboration opportunities with other biologists, geologists, chemists a=

nd

environmental scientists. Joining students will be fully supported by eit=

her

teaching assistantship or research assistantship. If interested, please

contact me with your research interests and CV at Sanghoon_Kang@baylor.ed=

Cheers,

Sanghoon Kang.

 


 

funded graduate assistantships

 

Hello MSA,

 

The Department of Geoscience at UNLV has just received several funded graduate assistantships that were unanticipated during our admissions process.

 

If you know of any students who are making their minds up late to go to graduate school, please encourage them to apply. 

 

Our department (http://geoscience.unlv.edu/) has 17 faculty engaged in a broad variety of research including volcanology, planetary science, high pressure geophysics, tectonics, structural geology, hydrology, climate change, etc., etc.

 

The GA positions are not tied to any particular faculty member and, thus, allow the admitted students significant freedom to select an advisor in any of our sub-disciplines.

 

They can contact me directly. Thank you.

Download the exhibitor and sponsor brochure for a complete list of entitlements by level of involvement and the exhibitor & sponsor registration form.

 

 

Abstract, Poster & Working Group Submissions

 

During this Ecosystem Services Partnership conference, you will have the opportunity to present a paper in a parallel session, present a poster, or organize a working group. Details of all three options are below: 


Parallel Session Presentations:

These presentations will be held on the first two days of the conference. There will be only a few parallel sessions, but with shorter presentations. This will allow you to have a larger audience for your presentation.

 

Poster Presentations:

Posters will be displayed throughout the conference, with specific times for being at your poster for discussion.

 

Working Groups:

Small groups working over the course of two days (August 1-2), to solve a problem and implement the solutions. Working groups are intended to be transdisciplinary, including a diverse range of scientists, policy makers, communicators, and practitioners. They should allow sufficient time for participants to meet and interact to discuss and solve real problems in the field and also to determine how to best communicate the results. Working groups will be given a short amount of time on the final day (August 3) of the conference to report their results in plenary.

Submissions due April 15, 2012!
