Research Assistantship in Quantitative Floristics
The LIBRA group at Oklahoma State University (http://ecology.okstate.edu/Libra/index.htm) is seeking a PhD student to assist with the FloraS of North America Project (http://botany.okstate.edu/floras/index.html) as part of an NSF-EPSCoR funded collaborative proposal on Ecological Forecasting. This position is funded for 2.5 years, after which teaching or other assistantships will be available. The student is expected to enroll in the OSU Plant Sciences PhD program, and to develop a dissertation project related to the funded research. A start date of 4 January 2010 is desirable but negotiable.
The ideal candidate would have strong scientific writing skills, experience with GIS, and familiarity with North American floristics - although applicants with a subset of such experience will still be considered. The student will be expected to collaborate with a diversity of scholars with expertise in computer science, statistics, geography, botany, ecosystem science, and global change.
For full consideration, send a statement of interest, contact information for three references, and a current CV by 13 October 2009 to Michael Palmer at mike.palmer at okstate.edu<mailto:mike.palmer at okstate.edu>. Informal inquiries by email are welcome.
