3 MSc assistantships at No. Arizona Univ.

1) Dr. Sánchez Meador (http://nau.edu/CEFNS/Forestry/Faculty-and-Staff/Directory/SánchezMeador), Assistant Professor, School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff AZ (http://nau.edu/CEFNS/Forestry) seeks applications from highly-motivated students interested in pursuing graduate studies in restoration ecology and modeling coarse woody debris decomposition (M.S.:$17,680/yr for two years; also includes tuition remission and student health coverage). The selected student will investigate and model short- and long-term snag fall and downed log decay rates for southwestern ponderosa pine forests and will receive a high degree of exposure to techniques such as dendrochronology, sampling, and statistical modeling. This information will then be used to validate associated functions within the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) and a locally developed forest reconstruction model used to quantify reference conditions.

The position starts the Fall of 2013. To apply, send (as a PDF or Word Document): 1) a CV (including GPA, GRE scores and complete contact information); 2) a letter of interest (stating clearly research interests); and 3) the names and contact information of three references to: Αυτή η διεύθυνση ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου προστατεύεται από τους αυτοματισμούς αποστολέων ανεπιθύμητων μηνυμάτων. Χρειάζεται να ενεργοποιήσετε τη JavaScript για να μπορέσετε να τη δείτε.. After an initial screening, selected finalists will be asked to submit a formal application to the School of Forestry (http://nau.edu/CEFNS/Forestry/Degrees/MS). Women and applicants from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
Students who do not have a previous degree in forestry are eligible for admission to the NAU School of Forestry graduate program. However, upon admission, students who are admitted without a previous degree in forestry must take 15 hours of remedial coursework in forestry.

2) A highly-motivated applicant is sought who is interested in pursuing graduate studies in ecological restoration of mixed-conifer forest. The selected student will investigate long term dynamics of southwestern mixed-conifer forests, focusing on reference conditions and changes in species composition, demographics, and spatial patterns. This project will likely receive a high degree of exposure to techniques such as dendrochronology, spatial statistics, and demographic modeling. This position will be co-advised by Dr. Andrew Sánchez Meador, School of Forestry (http://nau.edu/cefns/forestry) and Dr. David Huffman, Ecological Restoration Institute (http://www.eri.nau.edu) at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ

The position starts Fall of 2013, with the possibility to begin data collection in the summer of 2013. To apply, send (as a PDF or Word Document): 1) a CV (including GPA, GRE scores and complete contact information); 2) a letter of interest (stating clearly research interests); and 3) the names and contact information of three references to: Αυτή η διεύθυνση ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου προστατεύεται από τους αυτοματισμούς αποστολέων ανεπιθύμητων μηνυμάτων.

Flagstaff is located at an elevation of 2,280 m on the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau and offers exceptional recreational opportunities. The School of Forestry is one of the top Forestry Schools in the nation, and is an extremely productive research environment, with faculty members specializing in a variety of ecological topics such as landscape ecology, ecological restoration, plant ecophysiology, entomology, hydrology, and soil ecology among other topics. The candidate will also have opportunities to interact with additional staff from the Ecological Restoration Institute, who will also be heavily involved in the project.
