Job Description:

We are offering two PhD Fellowships in the Landscape Ecology and Fire (LEAF) Laboratory at Texas Tech University beginning January 2022. These positions are available through a new National Needs Fellowship Program sponsored by the USDA. The overall goal of the program is to train experts in a holistic knowledge base of two critical areas: forest resource management given novel patterns of wildfire, and science communication given the New Media Age. Each Fellow will work towards a doctoral degree in Wildlife, Aquatic, and Wildlands Science and Management, including cross-disciplinary coursework and professional development activities to hone skills in science communication. We have available three years of support at $24,500/yr for each Fellow.

The LEAF lab employs students and other researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds because diversity makes our research team stronger. We encourage qualified candidates of all races, ethnicities, and gender identities to apply.

Qualifications:

We desire that applicants have experience in one or more of the following areas: fire ecology, forest resource management, landscape ecology, communications, and geographic information science. Applicants should have (or anticipate having) a master’s degree in one of these areas or a closely related field by the time the fellowship would begin. Start date is negotiable, but we anticipate that at least one Fellow will begin in January 2022.

Salary:
$24,500
How to Apply:

To apply, please submit a one-page cover letter, unofficial transcripts, and a cv, including contact information for up to three references, to nathan.gill@ttu.edu. Questions can be directed to Dr. Nathan Gill at the same email address.
