We are looking for a student interested in learning more about the adverse health outcomes associated with exposure to drinking water contaminants. Our research would appeal to someone interested in 1) conducting experiments in the laboratory using a chicken embryo model to evaluate toxicity and/or 2) conducting epidemiology studies to evaluate risk of adverse health outcomes (birth defects and non-Hodgkin lymphoma) associated with exposure to drinking water contaminants in Nebraska.
Students wanting to apply for Fall 2017 would be eligible.
The spatial distribution of permeability in sand bars is key to the hydrologic function of river beds. The goal of this project to develop an understanding of the sedimentary processes that control permeability heterogeneity. The project will involve field and laboratory work. Field work will be conducted in central Nebraska in the Loup River system. This work will involve wading through shallow water, installing tubes for permeability testing, making measurements, and operating
The Nebraska State Climate office is providing new opportunities for utilizing weather data and forecasting resources. Our faculty team proposes to employ a student to develop a new set of tools for assessing odor and dust risks associated with an animal feeding operation.
