Assistantships (PhD, MS)

MS/PhD position to study oak regeneration in oak forests and/or oak dominant ecosystems the eastern United States

The College of Forestry and Wildlife Science (SFWS) at Auburn University has a two/three-year MS/PhD graduate assistantship starting from August of 2021. Oak decline has impacted millions of acres of forest across the eastern United States and continues to be a problem, making it imperative to regenerate species resistant to oak decline. White oak is more resistant to oak decline than most other oak species. However, there are long-term sustainability issues with white oak. Both field work and spatial technology (GIS/RS/GPS) and quantitative tools (statistical models) will be used to integrate remotely sensed data with site specific data to be collected during the project period to quantify/model ecosystem (or component) responses to both natural and anthropogenic disturbances such as tree regeneration, growth, inter- and intra-specific interaction, fire and biological invasion, fire regime-vegetation relationship, and ecosystem resilience.

The CFWS will provide a graduate research assistantship, including a stipend of approximately US $18,000(MS) and 20,000 (PhD) annually and full tuition waiver. Students are also eligible to participate in the Graduate Student Health insurance plan ( Individuals with degrees in forestry, natural resources, geosciences, and related areas with an experience in applying quantitative tools and spatial techniques to forestry and environmental problems are encouraged to apply.
