Clemson Silviculture/Ecology Lab is seeking one Ph.D. student interested in developing innovative silviculture practices for climate-smart forestry (CSF). Specifically, you will study how existent and novel silvicultural systems affect the capacity of southern forests in climate change mitigation and/or adaptation, based on which CSF practices can be developed for future implementation.
As a part of a large project, you will join a team working to optimize natural climate solutions in southeastern forests and build vibrant economic markets for climate-smart forest products. As a result, your dissertation research will be structured to align with the overall project goals but will take into consideration your interests and strengths.
We are seeking outstanding candidates with BS and/or MS in Forestry, Natural Resources, Plant Biology, Plant/Forest Ecology, and Environmental Sciences. A past record of research experience and scientific publication is desirable, and any demonstrated ability in quantitative skills and computer application is advantageous.
The student will be offered a full stipend of $25,000/year plus a tuition waiver. The stipend is mostly from research grants in the form of GRA but may include a minor (< 25%) GTA assignment to give students some experience in teaching.
The assistantship is for four years, renewable annually, based on satisfactory performance and funding availability. Competitive university and/or college scholarships are available for outstanding candidates, and students working in our lab have had an excellent track record of obtaining these scholarships. Any scholarships awarded to the students will be in addition to the offered stipend. The assistantship will start in May or August 2023.
