Graduate Student Positions at USU – Forest and Fire Ecology

I am recruiting two MS or PhD level graduate students starting in the summer or fall of 2018. Students will have flexibility in their projects, but potential themes could include post-fire regeneration across ecological gradients, effectiveness of fuels treatments or post-

fire management, or quantifying mixtures of fire severity in the past, present, and/or future.

For more information, please contact Larissa Yocom at If you=92d like to apply, please send me 1) a letter describing your research interests, 2) a resume or CV, 3) GRE scores, 4) unofficial transcripts, and 5) names and contact information for 3 references.

Graduate students may obtain degrees through the Department of Wildland Resources or the Ecology Center at Utah State. Utah State is located in Logan, which is 85 miles north of Salt Lake City and positioned in a scenic mountain basin with nearby wilderness areas, ski resorts, forests, lakes, rivers, and mountains. The cost of living in Logan is low, the community is very safe, and it is within a day’s drive of multiple national parks.
