Environmental Geochemistry, Kent State University

The Environmental Geochemistry group in the Department of Geology at Kent State University is inviting applications for MS and PhD students. Dr. Elizabeth Herndon is seeking graduate students for an NSF-funded project on manganese biogeochemistry and impacts on carbon cycling in terrestrial ecosystems. Candidates may also be considered for other ongoing projects related to metal biogeochemistry in arctic environments or human-impacted streams. Applicants should have a solid academic record in earth and environmental sciences, preferably with a strong background in chemistry and prior research experience. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive research group and strongly encourage applicants who contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Interested students should contact Dr. Herndon (eherndo1@kent.edu) this fall to discuss opportunities. Please indicate your research interests and include a current resume. Successful applicants will join the Department of Geology in August 2019, or in some circumstances, summer 2019. Support will be a combination of research and teaching assistantships and includes tuition. The Department of Geology has over 30 active graduate students and maintains analytical facilities for comprehensive water and soil/rock analysis (https://www.kent.edu/geology/facilities).
