Science Outside the Lab: Urban Resilience to Extremes (SOtL UREx)

Program runs June 24-June 30, 2018. Science Outside the Lab: Urban Resilience to Extremes (SOtL UREx), presented by Arizona State University’s Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes (CSPO), explores the relationships among science, policy, and societal outcomes in a place where many important decisions about these things are made—Washington, DC. During this one week workshop,… Read more »

PhD Assistantship in Biogeochemistry at Virginia Tech – Hubbard Brook LTER

We are seeking applicants for a Ph.D. research assistantship in the biogeochemistry of forested ecosystems.  Research will focus on the fate and transport of weathering products across spatial gradients within watersheds.  Project goals include characterizing dynamic solute fluxes that will help us understand how ecosystems respond to and recover from different global change drivers. The… Read more »

Critical Zones Observatory (CZO) SAVI International Scholars Program

In recognition of the global nature and continuing success of Critical Zone (CZ) science, the U.S. NSF has provided funding to the CZ Observatory (CZO) Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) project to enable travel to CZ sites or pre-eminent laboratories overseas to further the investigation of the CZ. This announcement is an open solicitation for… Read more »

Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) SAVI Summer Interns Program

The Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) represent a wide range of environmental and landscape settings. To enable broad understanding of the evolution, function and sustainability of the Critical Zone, the CZOs have begun to articulate scientific questions that are common and have value across the entire CZO network. Those questions are: What controls CZ properties? And… Read more »
