New PhD Paleolimnology Projects 2011-2015: Environmental Dynamics Program, Department of Geosciences, University of Arkansas, USA
I encourage applications from suitably qualified candidates for PhD research topics in the fields of Paleolimnology. The Environmental Dynamics Program offers around five scholarships for salary, tuition and travel money.
- Multiproxy Paleohydrology reconstruction using oxbow lake sediments (supervision: Sonja Hausmann, Antje Schwalb)
- Atmospheric Mercury contamination versus mercury released in mining districts
- Diatoms of springs and streams of the Ozarks.
Other projects are possible as well.
