Student Opportunity Announcements
Graduate Research Assistantships in Environmental Science & Policy
The Center for the Environment (CFE) at Plymouth State University, Plymouth, NH is inviting applications for its MS program in Environmental Science and Policy (http://www.plymouth.edu/cfe). The CFE addresses the science, policies, culture, and economics of the natural environment in northern New England through research, education and collaboration. We engage on- and off-campus partners to define, acquire, and provide science-based knowledge to make informed decisions.
Students will have opportunities to collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and scientists from other academic, governmental, and non-governmental organizations such as the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, White Mountains National Forest, and NH Department of Environmental Services. Individuals from all disciplinary backgrounds will be considered.
Graduate research assistantships (GRA) for 2013-2014 may be available in the areas of hydrology, forest ecology, environmental social sciences, ecosystem services, climate change, ecological economics, limnogeology, or a combination of those topics. Students receiving assistantships will conduct field sampling, analytical, and/or theoretical work on projects related to our mission. These GRAs provide an excellent opportunity to work with a broader cohort of students and their mentors working at the intersection of earth systems, plant ecology, biogeochemistry, hydrology, and social sciences. A signature of the program is that graduate work must involve a substantive outreach or public engagement project.
In addition to the application materials required by the College of Graduate Studies, (http://www.plymouth.edu/graduate/admissions/) please submit a statement of interest and a current resume/CV to the program coordinator, June Hammond Rowan (firstname.lastname@example.org)to be considered for GRA funding. The priority deadline for funding consideration is January 15, 2013.
