GTA positions in Environmental Science

Water Quality and Paleoclimate research opportunities at Kent State University

Dr. Joseph D. Ortiz seeks students with a broad interest in environmental science to join his research group in the Department of Geology at Kent State University.  We have departmentally funded GTA positions at both the MS and PhD level for students starting in Fall 2015.  My research makes use of sedimentology, physical properties, and environmental sensing to monitor changes in biogeochemical processes on modern through Plio-Pleistocene timescales.  Current research in my lab is focused on identification of harmful algal blooms in inland waters, regional patterns of Holocene climate variability in the Arctic and Pacific, and orbitally-driven changes in Plio-Pleistocene climate.
