The Hurteau Earth Systems Ecology Lab is recruiting 1-2 PhD students to for fall 2015 to work on research focused on better understanding how climate change and disturbance will influence tree species distributions and forest carbon dynamics. We use empirical and simulation experiments to address a range of questions related to this topic. Current research projects can be reviewed here.
Qualifications include a BS in ecology, environmental science, forestry, statistics, or another quantitative discipline. Programming experience preferred.
Information about the graduate program in Biology at the University of New Mexico can be found here.
To Apply: If interested please email a CV, 1-page statement of research interests, unofficial transcripts, and contact information for three references to Matthew Hurteau (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 1, 2014.
