The Geography Graduate Outreach Committee (Jasmine Arpagian, Sari Blakeley, Xin Feng, Susan Meerdink, and Rafael Ramos) and the Bren graduate students organized the first ever joint Happy Hour on March 14, 2017. This event was an opportunity for Geography and Bren graduate students, faculty, staff, and researchers to meet, talk, and learn more about each otherโ€™s research. The event was held in the Bren Visitor Center, with more than 100 people attending. Of those attending, over 50 geography graduate students and 11 geography faculty were present at the event. The event started off with brief introductions of the departments in which our Geography Department was declared the most interdisciplinary. Erin Wetherley said, "I had a great time! It can be hard sometimes to meet grad students from other departments. This event was a great opportunity, and also a ton of fun!" Professor David Lopez-Carr commented, โ€œSuch collegial events inspire trust and creativity. It was gratifying to see the large and festive turnout from geography.โ€

Geography undergraduate, Noah Gluschankoff, has won a fellowship in the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Summer Student Fellowship program. This fellowship is awarded to students who complete their junior year by the start of the fellowship and are studying fields of science. The program aims to give students a first-hand introduction to research in oceanography, oceanographic engineering, or marine policy. Fellows are selected based on academic achievement, and who show promise as future ocean scientists. This program is very competitive, with approximately 12% of the applicants receiving awards.

Noah's project seeks to understand how various forms of nitrogen are transformed and interact with sulfide in high pressure and temperatures environments. He will accomplish this through investigating abiotic nitrogen reduction by sulfide in hydro-thermal vents utilizing stable isotope laboratory techniques with the Wankel Lab at WHOI. Additionally. Noah will be participating in a side project focusing on improving the measurement techniques of motor-operated autonomous kayak, aka 'Jetyak', for use in high risk environments or areas that are generally inaccessible to humans
.
Congratulations Noah!

More information on the fellowship can be found here: http://www.whoi.edu/main/ssf/program-overview

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow: Remote sensing of West African savannas and grazing lands, part of a USAID-NASA-SERVIR Advanced Science Team project.


We seek a productive and self-motivated post-doctoral scientist to join a collaborative team developing remote sensing-based applications relevant to natural resources and management of West African grazing lands and savannas. The position is funded through New Mexico State University (NMSU) as part of a USAID and NASA initiative (SERVIR; servirglobal.net). We will be working with partners in West Africa to enhance application of Earth Observing data and geospatial technologies for environmental management, food security and economic development, with particular emphasis on natural resources and environmental assessment in semi-arid grazing lands and savannas. While the project PI is based at NMSU we anticipate that the post-doctoral scientist may spend much of her/his time in Niamey, West Africa, to ensure close collaboration with regional SERVIR partners and stakeholders. We seek a colleague with expertise in satellite remote sensing, geospatial analysis and programming, and a keen interest in capacity-building to advance adoption of remote sensing technologies for development impact. Ability to work as part of a team and willingness to live and travel in West Africa, are important. Excellent oral and written communication skills in English or French are essential, with ability to function in both languages a distinct advantage.

To apply, send the following information as a single PDF file by email to nhanan@nmsu.edu (use โ€˜SERVIR post-docโ€™ as the subject field): 1) a cover letter outlining your research interests and prior experience, 2) a detailed CV, and 3) contact information for 3 academic / professional referees. Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Niall Hanan to discuss the project and potential roles for the successful applicant. Competitive salary and benefits, plus support for travel between NMSU and West Africa and between countries in the region. The position is available starting January 2017 for one year, with annual renewal for an additional two years, subject satisfactory progress and continued funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
