Dear Colleagues--

[Apologies for any cross-posting.]

See below for a grad student opportunity.  Funding is available immediately, so getting a person started soon would be great.  Thanks for helping me spread the word.

Graduate student opportunity in Quantitative Biogeography/Ecology related to forest disturbances at the University of Idaho.

Funding for up to 3 years is available immediately for a quantitative MS or PhD student to study interactions of climate and forest insects in the western United States.  Possible projects include assessing climate influences on insects using data analysis; applying advanced statistical methods to identify drivers of outbreaks; and/or incorporating a computer-based mechanistic model of forest insects into an ecohydrology model. The successful candidate will have a background in geography, ecology, forestry, biogeosciences, or a related field. Qualifications also include a background in analytical or statistical methods and/or familiarity with computer programming; excellent written and oral communication skills; and an enthusiasm for research.  Students have the opportunity to receive a degree in Geography (www.uidaho.edu/sci/geography<http://www.uidaho.edu/sci/geography>) or Environmental Science (www.uidaho.edu/envs<http://www.uidaho.edu/envs>).  Depending on experience and project, a start date of January or May 2018 may be needed (because of funding time constraints).  Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, GPA, GRE scores, and a personal statement that describes the candidate’s interest in the position and relevant education and experience (all materials required) to Dr. Jeffrey Hicke (jhicke at uidaho.edu<mailto:jhicke at uidaho.edu>). Inquiries via email or phone (208-885-6240) are welcome.
