Several Scholarships available for faculty and professionals.
Three graduate assistantships, two for the M.S. and one for the Ph.D., are available in the School of Forestry, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ. The research is focused on fire ecology, forest management, climate change, and ecosystem services on Native American lands in Arizona and New Mexico. The tribes participating in the project are the Navajo Nation and the Mescalero Apache Tribe. Principal investigators are Dr. Peter Fulé, Dr. Yeon-Su Kim, and Dr. Andrew Sánchez-Meador. The research effort is divided into two phases. (1) Fire ecology and forest modeling: this component involves assembling data on forest characteristics and fire regime from existing and new sources, then modeling future forest change using a climate-sensitive simulation model. (2) Ecosystem services: developing model projections of future provision of ecosystem services, valuation of services, and comparison of alternative management strategies to sustain or increase future services. Each phase corresponds to one M.S. graduate assistantship. A Ph.D. assistantship is available primarily in the fire ecology and climate change aspects of the project, but with coordination responsibilities for the overall research effort. Each graduate assistantship includes tuition waiver and student health insurance.
For the fire ecology component of the research, contact Dr. Fulé at Pete.Fule@nau.edu.
For the ecosystem services component of the research, contact Dr. Kim at Yeon-Su.Kim@nau.edu.
Information about the graduate program is available at http://nau.edu/CEFNS/Forestry/Degrees/.
The preferred start date for the Ph.D. and the M.S. in fire ecology is July 1, 2015 (application materials due by March 15, 2015).
The preferred date for the M.S. in ecosystem services is January 1, 2016. Native American students are encouraged to contact us for further information.
