Undergraduate Research Assistant - Biology

I am looking for undergraduate students interested in studying soil organic matter decay, plant growth and the factors that affect it, as well investigating the implications of altered plant growth on large scale carbon dynamics. The students will compile data on carbon fluxes from the published literature, extract tree ring and diameter increment data from regional and global databases, learn and apply programming in R, statistical data analysis methods and numerical modeling. The students will investigate how ecosystem carbon fluxes respond to changing environment, such as elevated CO2, temperature, drought conditions, and changing nutrient availability.
