We would like to add to our team a highly motivated student interested in working at the interface between Ecology and Geomorphology. Our project seeks to understand how variation in soil fertility influences plant traits that play a critical role in slope stability in tropical mountains. The student participating in this project will learn about soils, plants, and roots and will have the opportunity to develop a research project. For more information visit our lab (http://tlselab.uprrp.edu/research/opportunities.htm) and send any inquiry to Dr. Carla Restrepo (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for receiving the applications is February 21.
