We seek a highly motivated and qualified individual for a funded PhD research assistantship in the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Sciences at Michigan Technological University. The selected student will be engaged in answering a very topical research question rooted in the long-term effect of biomass harvest from forests in the US Upper Midwest. Project funding is supplied by Plum Creek Timber Company and the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement.
Competitive applicants will have a background in forestry, ecosystem science or soil science and a strong interest in field research and the sustainable management of Great Lakes forests. An M.Sc. degree in a related field is a definite asset. Proficiency in spoken and written English is required. The assistantship comes with a competitive stipend and covers the cost of tuition and fees. Supplementary support including discretionary travel funds is anticipated for strong candidates.
Michigan Tech is one of the premier Forestry and Environmental Science Universities in the United States. The School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science has been ranked fourth in the nation for scholarly productivity among forestry schools, and first in North America based on citations per faculty member. Well-established partnerships with the USDA Northern Research Station and the Northern Institute for Applied Climate Science enhance opportunities for scholarly collaboration. The university is located in Houghton, Michigan near the shores of Lake Superior, and offers superb outdoor recreation opportunities in a modern, safe small city community.
The start date is January 2012. Interested persons should send GRE scores, one-page statement of professional interests, curriculum vitae including names and contact information for two references, and any other relevant materials to Dr. Froese by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
