I am seeking a highly motivated MS student to join the Forest Hydrology and
Soils Lab in the College of Forest Resources at Mississippi State
University (Starkville, MS). The student will work on a project
investigating the impacts of prescribed fire on forest hydrology and
nutrient cycling in central hardwoods ecosystems. Along with an
interdisciplinary group of researchers, the student will conduct extensive
field research at the Spirit Hill Farm Experimental Forest in northern
Mississippi to determine how tree species alter the distribution of water
resources to the forest floor and the subsequent influence on forest
flammability.  This project also includes laboratory work in the Forest
Hydrology and Soils Lab on campus. The prospective student should possess
enthusiasm for field work, strong analytical and communication skills, and
attention to detail. The anticipated start date is August 2018. Financial
support is available for two years, including a stipend, tuition waiver,
and health insurance.

If interested, please contact Dr. Courtney Siegert at
courtney.siegert at msstate.edu <csiegert at cfr.msstate.edu> and provide (1) a
cover letter discussing interest in the research and applicable background
experience; (2) a CV; and (3) unofficial transcripts and/or GREs. Review of
applications will begin March 10, 2018.
