Ph.D. Graduate Assistantship in Forest Ecology/Silviculture

A PhD position is available beginning summer/fall 2007 for a highly
motivated and qualified individual to work on a long-term northern
hardwoods silviculture research project at Michigan Technological
University. Northern hardwoods are a dominant forest type across the Great
Lakes states, and are typically managed with uneven-aged techniques. An
opportunity exists to remeasure a long-term cutting trial on the School's
Forest (at the Ford Forestry Center), and aid in setting up the next series
of treatments. Other long-term research sites, including premier
old-growth, may be included in the study. The position includes serving as
a teaching assistant for a semester-long integrated field practicum, also
held at the School's Forest. Room and board are included in the funding
package, along with tuition, fees, and stipend.

MTU is located in Michigan's scenic Keweenaw Peninsula, rated one of the 10
