The Morales-Williams Lab at the University of Vermont Rubenstein School has an unexpected opening for a PhD student to work on an NSF Macrosystems-funded project investigating the influence of warming winters on phytoplankton phenology and ecosystem function.

The project will integrate experimental approaches in aquatic mesocosms at the Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Laboratory with a larger scale study of more than 30 lakes across the U.S.

Ideal candidates will be enthusiastic about collaborative team science and the influences of climate change on phytoplankton community ecology. Previous M.S. research in a related field is preferred but not required. Applications will be considered for start dates in either fall 2024 or spring 2025. To apply for this position, please send your CV and brief statement of interest to Mindy Morales Williams as soon as possible, but no later than Monday June 17 to be considered for a fall start; or by August 1 to apply for spring (January 2025 start).

Please don't hesitate to reach out to Mindy via email or GLEON slack if you have questions about the position or project.
