The Hu Lab (thehulab.com) in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE, https://snre.arizona.edu/) at the University of Arizona is seeking a PhD student to work on an interdisciplinary project to examine the sensitivity of western forests to changes in precipitation dynamics. This project will include topics related to ecohydrology, plant ecophysiology, dendrochronology, and stable isotope biogeochemistry. In addition to resources through SNRE, the student will also work within the Laboratory of Tree Ring Research (LTRR, http://ltrr.arizona.edu). This is a fully funded PhD project and includes salary, tuition, and health benefits. We are looking for an enthusiastic student who can work long hours at times comfortably both in the field (often under inclement weather), as well as in the lab.
