An interdisciplinary research project housed at UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management is hosting an exciting fully-funded week-long summer seminar from August 7-11, 2017 on the UCSB campus. Master’s students and undergraduates interested in pursing Ph.D.degrees in environmental studies or related disciplines (such as geography, forestry, political science, economics, etc.) are encouraged to apply.
The principal investigators of the SERI Fire research project (formally titled Wildfire Management, Ecosystem Dynamics, and Climate: The Role of Risk Salience in Driving Ecological Outcomes) will lead the student seminar, which is modeled on a successful synthesis course at the Bren School that has yielded three published papers and two papers under review. Students will collaboratively develop questions, review the peer-reviewed literature, and offer conclusions pertaining to wildfire management.
Applications are due on April 2, 2017. Please see the attached announcement for detailed instructions on how to apply. Please distribute to any students who may be interested, and feel free to email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org!
