Southern Cross University is offering a PhD scholarship to study the role and contribution of wetland trees in mediating methane emissions to the atmosphere. This PhD position will be based within the vibrant Southern Cross GeoScience research centre, based at Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus in eastern Australia. The university provides students with expert knowledge and practical experiences that equip them for their future roles as leaders in their discipline and community.
Southern Cross University (SCU) is an established Australian public university, with campuses at Lismore and Coffs Harbour in northern New South Wales, and at the southern end of the Gold Coast in Queensland.
Successful candidates of Southern Cross University Trees-Mediated Methane Emissions PhD International Awards 2021 will be offered-
This scholarship and associated funding represents an opportunity to complete a PhD and conduct a program of research in environmental geochemistry at the interface of wetland soil/water/plant science. As part of a larger team, the successful candidate will contribute to directly measuring methane emissions from freshwater wetland tree species in Australian wetlands and will employ cutting-edge techniques, including portable greenhouse gas analysers and the use of isotopic signatures. Investigations will include exploring the spatial, temporal and seasonal CH4 dynamics of tree-stems with a view to furthering our understanding of key processes, drivers, and their overall significance in methane budgets.
Applicants are asked to submit an expression of interest, which must include a CV, copies of previous research outputs and a cover letter outlining a summary of your research experience, your reasons for wanting to do a PhD and information on how your skills will be relevant to the project (email to [email protected] and [email protected]). This project aims to officially start in the first quarter of 2021, but there is some flexibility with the exact starting date (upon mutual agreement). Applications will remain open until filled in 2021.
