A Message to Prospective Graduate Students
The Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society does not have a large undergraduate program and therefore Teaching Assistantships are limited. As a result, my capacity to take on new grad students is usually contingent on new grant funding. New positions that are specific to these grants will be posted below. If you currently have your own graduate funding (e.g., NSERC, NSF) and would like to work in my lab, please contact me directly.
