M.S. Graduate Research Assistantship: Understanding greenhouse gas fluxes in tidal marshes, University of Rhode Island

We are seeking an individual with experience in soil science, environmental science, or estuarine biology to work on a study focused on understanding greenhouse gas fluxes in Northeastern U.S. salt marshes. The candidate will research the relationships among edaphic and hydrologic factors that control fluxes of carbon dioxide and methane as well as how these fluxes vary within and among marshes. Studies will involve understanding the driving factors related to carbon accumulation and decomposition within salt marshes. Applicants should be experienced in working in the field under adverse conditions.

Experience with GIS is essential and familiarity with R is desired. The candidate must also be an out-of-state applicant as required by our funding source. The College of the Environment and Life Sciences at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston RI conducts research in coastal and freshwater wetland ecology, biogeochemistry, watershed science, soil ecology, hydropedology, landscape ecology and wildlife conservation biology and management.

Position begins Summer 2023. Please send statement of interest and Academic CV to: Dr. Mark Stolt, and Dr. Serena Moseman-Valtierra at

Applications will be reviewed beginning February, 2023.
