Ph.D. Opportunity, University of Kentucky (UK). The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences has a 2019‐20 assistantship available for a Ph.D. student (starting fall, 2019). All assistantships include full academic‐year stipends and health insurance, plus summer funding for competitive applicants. Exceptional applicants may qualify for additional awards and fellowships. The project supporting this opportunity is focused on the fate of transport of mercury (Hg) in the English‐Wabigoon River system, Ontario, Canada. This research has major implications for the environmental quality experienced by indigenous, First Nations peoples in this region, and for the design and implementation of large‐scale environmental engineering to affect remediation. The successful candidate will be working with sediment cores from river channel and riparian wetland settings, and will be combining research methods in sedimentology, environmental radiochemistry, elemental and spatial analyses. For specific questions about this project and opportunity, please contact Dr. Kevin Yeager (859‐257‐5431 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The department has 11 tenure‐track faculty conducting research in seismology, planetary geophysics, geodynamics, tectonics, hydrogeology, stable isotope geochemistry, paleontology, paleoclimatology, paleolimnology, sedimentary geology, petroleum geology, coal geology, structural geology, environmental geology, and petrology. State‐of‐the‐art facilities in the department, the Kentucky Geological Survey, and the Center for Applied Energy Research include: the Kentucky Seismic and Strong‐Motion Network; a technical computing cluster with seismic processing, interpretation, and modelling software; laboratories for environmental radiochemistry, stable isotopes, stratigraphy, geomechanics, detrital mineral separation, mineralogy (X‐ray analysis, electron microprobe and SEM), and organic petrology; and field instrumentation for shallow onshore/offshore seismic imaging, sediment coring, regional mapping, and hydrogeology. UK is located in Lexington, a vibrant community of ~330,000 voted one of the best college towns in America (http://www.bestcollege reviews.org/50‐best‐college‐towns‐america/).
