This is a reminder for the PhD position available with the FloraS of North America Project. The deadline for expressing interest is 8 February, with a completed application for our graduate program by 28 February.
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 years, after which teaching or other assistantships will be available. The student is expected to qualify for and enroll in the OSU Plant Sciences PhD program (http://grad.okstate.edu/programs/ps/plantsci.htm), and to develop a dissertation project related to the funded research. A start date of 2 June 2010 is desirable but negotiable.
The ideal candidate would have strong scientific writing skills in English, experience with GIS, and familiarity with North American floristics – although applicants with a subset of such experience will 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 8 February 2010 to Michael Palmer at mike.palmer at okstate.edu<mailto:mike.palmer at okstate.edu>. Informal inquiries by email are welcome.
