Shuang Liang successfully defended her dissertation entitled "Simulating the effects of climate change, wildfire, and fuel treatment on Sierra Nevada forests". Congratulations Shuang!
The Earth Systems Ecology Lab is recruiting 1-2 PhD students to begin fall 2017. Current research topics in the lab include: understanding factors controlling post-wildfire tree establishment, quantifying the influence of changing climate and wildfire on tree species distributions and carbon dynamics, and quantifying the influence of forest management activities on forest carbon dynamics. Additional detail about ongoing projects can be found here. Student support will include some combination of teaching and research assistantships and only US citizens/legal residents will be considered.
If you are interested in being considered, send your CV, a one-page statement of research interests, unofficial transcripts, and unofficial GRE scores to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional details about student expectations can be found here. Review will begin on 7 November.
