The Rubenstein School of Environmental and Natural Resources has a position for a PhD in agricultural resilience and ecosystem services. Project Overview: As climate changes increasingly affect agriculture, farmers and policy makers are challenged by how to best address climate change mitigation and adaptation.  Central to this challenge is developing agroecosystems that do not degrade water quality, increase landscape flood resiliency, and mitigate agriculture’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, all while remaining economically viable. This interdisciplinary project aims to evaluate the ecological and economic impacts of alternative agricultural management practices with the goals of enhancing agricultural ecosystem services and resilience to climate change. We seek a student to work with our team to quantify and model carbon and nutrient storage and loss in conventional and alternative agricultural management systems (pasture and cropland). This work will allow us to investigate the potential for agricultural systems to both be productive (from the farmer’s perspective) and provide valuable services including water purification and climate regulation For more information, go here or go directly here.
