New PhD opportunities: Rebalancing the Nitrogen Cycle (January/September, 2022)

The Elliott Biogeochemistry Laboratory in the Department of Geology & Environmental Science at the University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA) is hiring 1-2
graduate students at the PhD level to participate in a new NSF-funded ECO CBET grant (#2133423)

The PhD student(s) will join an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers in designing and testing new carriers that deliver nitrogen-based fertilizers to crops
with minimal leaching losses. We are specifically looking for applicants interested in sustainable agriculture, plant/soil interactions, isotope tracers, and nutrient dynamics. The research team will engage with stakeholders through the Pittsburgh Water
Collaboratory, housed at the University of Pittsburgh and the public through programming at the University of Pittsburgh’s field station, Pymatuning Lab of Ecology.

Research in the Elliott lab is focused on understanding reactive nitrogen dynamics in Earth systems using
stable isotope bio/geochemistry. More information about the Elliott lab can be found on the lab website at (
