Two PhD assistantships are available in Michelle Mack=92s plant and ecosystem ecology lab, Center for Ecosystem Science and Society and Department of Biological Sciences, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ.
I am seeking students who are interested in either (1) linking ground-based measurements of tree rings and stand dynamics to satellite indices of greening and browning in Alaska and Western Canada; or (2) understanding the impacts of fire on forest carbon dynamics in the Russian Far East. Both positions will require substantial fieldwork, strong oral and written communication skills, and a background in plant and/or ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, statistics, soil science, and/or forestry.
Competitive graduate research assistantship funding and tuition waivers are available. Academically exceptional applicants may also be considered for an NAU Presidential Fellowship.

To be considered, please send a statement of your interest in the position, a copy of your CV, and information on your GPA and GRE scores by December 15, 2018.
