Three Master of Science positions are currently available for highly motivated students interested in the effects of land management practices on soil organic matter storage and stability in forest and/or agricultural systems. Projects include the effects of: 1. repeated wood ash addition on soil quality and foliar nutrition in a forest nursery trial, 2. mulching during land clearing on soil quality in an operational context, and 3. fire, harvesting and salvage logging (compound disturbance) on mineral stabilized soil organic matter.
The positions have a stipend of $20,000 per year. Start date is September 2019. Interested students are encouraged to contact Dr Amanda Diochon, Associate Professor, Department of Geology (email@example.com) for further details.
