PhD Position in Physical Geography - "Past climate variability in southern Greece"

PhD Position in Physical Geography within the topic "Past climate variability in southern Greece" at the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology. Reference number SU 463-40-09. Deadline for application: May 4, 2009.

A graduate research assistantship is available in the School of Biology and Ecology at the University of Maine for a student interested in watershed biogeochemistry. The successful applicant will be involved in a NSF-funded project that examines how nitrogen and acid deposition change biogeochemical pathways in coupled terrestrial-stream systems. The student will be based at U. Maine, but will collaborate extensively with stream and terrestrial ecologists, soil scientists, and geochemists at the University of Maine, Virginia Tech, and the U.S. Forest Service. Field work will be conducted at forested LTREB sites in Maine and West Virginia.

We seek a candidate for the following PhD project (project leader: I. M. Artemieva):
"Structure of the lithosphere of Siberia from complex analysis of geophysical data"


In this project we focus on the relations between the lithosphere structure, mantle processes and geodynamic evolution of the Siberian craton and the West Siberian Basin. We particularly aim (i) to refine the existing models on the crustal structure of Siberia, (ii) to distinguish structural and compositional heterogeneity of the lithospheric mantle using experimental and theoretical relations between seismic velocities, temperature, composition, and density of the upper mantle, (iii) to link the present-day lithospheric structure to past geodynamic processes in the region. The numerical modeling will be constrained by data on the crustal structure, surface topography, seismic tomography, lithospheric temperatures, and gravity, complemented by petrologic data.


M.Sc. Graduate Research Assistantship - Fisheries Biology Aquaculture/Fisheries Center - University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Pine Bluff, Arkansas

Responsibilities: Continue long-term research that assesses Arkansas River largemouth bass fisheries. Research will involve estimation of largemouth bass exploitation rates through tag-rewards study and conduct 12-month creel survey in one pool of the Arkansas River. Additional goals will be to survey competitive bass tournaments and assess various fishery length limits using computer simulation models. Exact thesis topic is flexible, but must be compatible with existing research needs. Specific duties of this position will include conducting fish sampling using boat-mounted electrofishing, oversight of a tag-rewards study, performance of bus-route creel surveys, supervision of field and laboratory workers, and general oversight of the day-to-day activities of the project. Individual will frequently interact with Arkansas Game and Fish Commission personnel. Weekend work will be required. Great potential to become involved in side projects.

Application for the 2010 cycle of the UNESCO-L'ORÉAL For Women in Science International Fellowships is now open.

What are the UNESCO-L'ORÉAL For Women in Science International Fellowships?

The Fellowships are jointly offered by UNESCO and L'ORÉAL, as part of the For Women In Science Programme, to support and promote women in scientific research all over the world.

The international Fellowships are awarded to promising young women scientists, at the doctoral or postdoctoral level, to undertake a research project in the life sciences which has been accepted by a reputable institution outside their home country.

15 international Fellowships are awarded each year. Each Fellowship is worth a maximum of US$40,000 to cover a research period of up to 24 months.

The international Fellowships aspire to support the scientific vocations of young women, to give them the opportunity to build international networks in the scientific community, and to gain crucial experience that they can bring back and share with others in their home countries.

The Fellowship beneficiaries are geographically spread, three Fellows being selected from each of the following regions: Africa; Arab States; Asia & the Pacific; Europe & North America; and Latin America & the Caribbean.
