Carbon cycling in intermittent streams
Approximately 75% of Australia’s waterways run dry for part of the year. However, without water to sample, these dry phases are treated as effectively ‘zero’ in our understanding of stream carbon cycling in Australia. We are currently seeking a PhD student to help redress this knowledge gap for sub-tropical Australian streams. The candidates will focus on methane and carbon dioxide cycling in intermittent streams. This work will involve combining techniques from terrestrial and aquatic sciences, with the option to use both high-frequency field instruments and stable isotope techniques.
Application deadline: Closing date for applications is 10 July 2020
