Graduate Student Research Opportunities at UC Berkeley in

Tropical Forests and Global Change

The Geography Department and the Energy and Resources Group (ERG) at the 
University of California, Berkeley, have up to two Graduate Student 
Researcher (GSR) opportunities for PhD students to investigate global 
change impacts on tropical forests. These GSR positions will focus on 
disturbance and recovery dynamics in natural and human-impacted tropical 
forest ecosystems. The successful candidates will become part of the 
Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment (NGEE) Tropics 
<http://eesa.lbl.gov/ngee-tropics/>science community, a large, 
interdisciplinary team collaborating to improve Earth system model (ESM) 
projections of tropical forest responses and feedbacks to climate 
change. Students with experience carrying out ecological field research 
in the tropics, and that have utilized tools such as remote sensing, GIS 
or computational modeling of populations, communities or ecosystems will 
be strong candidates for these positions. The position is 50% time (20 
hours/week) with two years of support, and with potential renewal for 
additional years. Jeff Chambers (Geography) and Lara Kueppers (ERG) will 
serve as advisors for the successful candidates.

Interested graduate applicants should apply for admission to the 
University of California, Berkeley, Department of Geography or ERG 
through the online graduate application portal 
<http://grad.berkeley.edu/admissions/apply/>, and contact Professor Jeff 
Chambers (jqchambers at berkeley.edu <mailto:jqchambers at berkeley.edu>) or 
Lara Kueppers (lmkueppers at lbl.gov <mailto:lmkueppers at lbl.gov>) via 
email. The application deadline for Geography is December 1, 2016. The 
application deadline for ERG is December 2, 2016.
