Funded Graduate Student Position in Plant Ecology

Funded Graduate Student Position in Plant Ecology

The Dovciak lab (http://www.esf.edu/efb/dovciak/) at the State University of New York (SUNY ESF) is looking for a highly motivated graduate student (PhD or MS) for a funded position to study vegetation dynamics of Long Island Pine Barrens of New York State. The student is expected to study forest plant communities and examine patterns of regeneration, recruitment, and mortality for pitch pine and oaks on vegetation plots surveyed in 2005/2006. The data and protocols from this survey are available for use. The position will include (1) resurvey of the vegetation plots, (2) quantification of changes in forest community and tree populations, and (3) building statistical models to relate tree population processes to environmental conditions (including canopy cover, understory vegetation, and soil properties).

The position starts on August 20, 2018, but a later start (January 2019) may be considered. The position is based at SUNY ESF in Syracuse (http://www.esf.edu/) and field work is based at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. Collaborative partners include the Central Pine Barrens Commission and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The position will be supported by research (2 years) and teaching assistantships (1-3 years) that cover a stipend, tuition, and health benefits.

Additional collaborative research opportunities exist in our lab within an NSF-funded project examining ecotone dynamics between deciduous and conifer forests of northeastern United States.

Desired qualifications:

– MS or BS in plant or forest ecology, botany, or a related field

– GPA >3.5 and GRE scores >70% (lower may be acceptable with relevant research experience)

– Basic vascular plant identification skills and familiarity with ecosystems of the northeastern United States

– Excellent time management, interpersonal, and team/collaborative skills

– Ability to work long hours in potentially adverse field conditions over a period of 2-3 months

– Interest in organizing and managing large data sets (e.g., in Excel or Access)

– Ability to use, or willingness to learn, advanced statistical methods and packages (e.g., R)

– Driver’s license and an own car

To apply, send (1) cover letter summarizing your interests, educational goals (MS, PhD), and qualifications, (2) CV, including GPA and GRE, (3) transcripts (unofficial OK at this stage), and (4) contacts
for three references to Martin Dovciak (mdovciak@esf.edu), ideally as a single pdf file. Please use “Plant Ecology Research Assistantship” in email subject line. Earlier inquiries are welcome. The review
of the applications will start on May 15 and continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Selected candidates will be asked to submit a full application (with official transcripts, reference letters,
and GRE reports) to SUNY ESF (http://www.esf.edu/graduate/admission.htm) as soon as possible.

The Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications!

An opportunity for PhD students.

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2018 Solicitation 1. Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: https://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/.

The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory/facility in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.

The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory/facility during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2018 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between October 29, 2018 and March 4, 2019.

Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 300 graduate awardees from more than 100 different universities to conduct thesis research at 17 DOE national laboratories across the nation.

The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research programs offices and the DOE national laboratories/facilities, and program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).

We would very much appreciate your help in distributing this announcement to your PIs and scientific communities.

Please find the email announcement attached. Also, for your consideration when delivering presentations to your scientific communities over the next couple of months, please also find attached a few slides with information about the program, including relevant website and contact information.

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.
