M.S. Fellowship in Soil Microbial & Forest Restoration Ecology

A fellowship is available for a student to pursue a Master of Science degree
studying soil microbial ecology in the context of forest restoration and
management through the Department of Biology at the University of
Mississippi.  The participating student would join a cohort of three other
graduate students with different organismal foci, all of whom will
participate in a comprehensive graduate training program in forest
restoration ecology.  Participating students will have several unique and
exciting opportunities, including a summer internship with a successful
forest restoration project in British Columbia, Canada; participation in
collaborative research on forest restoration and fire ecology in northern
Mississippi; coursework in forest restoration ecology, research methods, and
professional development; and supported travel to meetings.  The M.S. fellow
would join the research laboratory of Dr. Colin Jackson, but might also find
opportunities for collaborative research with Drs. Steve Brewer, Jason
Hoeksema, and Brice Noonan. The fellow will receive stipend support of
$17,000 for 2 years, health insurance, and a waiver of graduate tuition
through a United States Department of Agriculture graduate training
fellowship, and additional support in the form of a teaching assistantship
will be available if necessary.  Fellowships are only available to U.S.
citizens and nationals.
The University of Mississippi is located in Oxford, Mississippi, a small
college town in the forested uplands of northern Mississippi known for its
outstanding educational and cultural opportunities.
Starting date is negotiable, between January and August 2013.  For more
information contact Dr. Colin Jackson (cjackson@olemiss.edu,
http://www.colinrjackson.com/) and for instructions on how to apply please
see the website www.olemiss.edu/depts/biology/usda.  Applications should be
submitted as soon as possible, and will be accepted until February 1, 2013
or until the position is filled.  Members of under-represented groups are
especially encouraged to apply. The University of Mississippi is an
EEO/AA/Title VI/Title IX/Section 504/ADA/ADEA employer.
