Prospective Students

MS/PhD positions are available in the lab of Dr. Kevin McCluney at Bowling Green State University.

Although applications for all related areas of research are encouraged, currently we are particularly seeking applications for students with an interest in understanding variation in sources of phosphorus in streams, along with variation in nutrient cycling in agricultural soils and streams using phosphate isotopes. Interested students do not need a background in isotopes, but do need basic competence with laboratory chemistry, since the techniques are somewhat involved.

Note: we encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds. Please see our lab’s diversity, equity, and inclusion policy.

Strong applicants will receive tuition waivers and stipends for 2-3 (for MS) or 4-6 (for PhD) years, guaranteed, through a combination of research and teaching assistantships.

Note, PhD students must have a mean score of ~60th percentile across the different sections of the GRE, MS students should have a mean score of ~30th percentile, and both should have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.

Interested students should emailĀ with a cover letter and a CV (including GPA and GRE percentiles), before submitting an official application to the graduate college (due February 1st, 2021, but also accepted after that date). For more information about the application process, see:

BGSU is a high research public university, with ~20,000 students, located in NW Ohio, 30 min south of Toledo and ~1 hr from Ann Arbor and Detroit.
