PhD Assistantship at U. of Montana
University of Montana
The University of Montana Wilderness Institute seeks to fill a PhD assistantship to work on a funded project entitled, “Ecosystem Response to Fire in the Wilderness.” This project will measure vegetation and fuels data across sites that burned in the last 40 years in order to assess the potential for fire-caused changes to forest structure and function, including the possibility of conversions to non-forest. This project is a collaboration with the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute (ALWRI). The position will be supervised by Dr. Andrew Larson.

Pyric-Herbivory Post Doc
Texas A&M AgriLife Research
The Texas A&M AgriLife Research & Extension Center at San Angelo is seeking an individual with knowledge and skills in data analysis, including spatial data and image analysis, and project management for a multistate research, education and outreach project investigating biological and sociological factors affecting sustainable livestock production on Great Plains rangelands. This is a fully funded, 5-year project that will evaluate the effects of diversifying herbivory by introducing a browser in a landscape that has traditionally been managed for grazers. Our study will focus on integrating multiple herbivores into the pyric-herbivory model (fire-grazing interaction) for conservation of North American Grasslands. This project is funded by the USDA-NIFA and focuses on fire and multispecies grazing in management and conservation of rangelands on the Southern Great Plains. This project will interact with a broad array of users of rangeland ecosystems from livestock producers to public school educators and their students. At the completion of this project the successful applicant will be very competitive for tenure track faculty positions.
