Oregon State University’s Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society has three funded positions available for new graduate student Fellows, beginning August 2020. The Fellowships will support one PhD student and two Masters students interested in conducting research on collaborative governance and fire ecology in wildfire management in Oregon. Fellows will work as a team to develop skills in making science useful to collaborative organizations, communities, and policy makers working to reduce fire risk and improve forest health in the landscapes of eastern Oregon including the wildland-urban interface.
- One Masters student will work with Dr. Meg Krawchuk on fire ecology and conservation
- One Masters student will work with Dr. Troy Hall on science communication
- One PhD student will work with Dr. Reem Hajjar on collaborative governance
Funding for the positions will cover tuition and stipend for 2 years for Masters students (including 2 quarters as a graduate teaching assistant) and 4 years for the PhD student (including 3 quarters of teaching responsibilities), as well as travel and participation associated activities (listed in the announcement link below).
