Positions for graduate students
MSc or PhD Opportunity in Paleoecology
Dr. Terri Lacourse is seeking graduate students (MSc or PhD) to join her paleoecology lab. Research in her lab focuses on the development and dynamics of forest communities since the last glaciation and the climatic and non-climatic factors that drive vegetation dynamics on long timescales. Other potential research topics include the past effects of tephra deposition on plant communities, and the links between climate, vegetation and carbon accumulation in peatlands. Guaranteed funding for research and student stipend is available.
Ideal candidates will have a solid background in plant ecology and/or Quaternary science, and excellent academic standing. Interested students are encouraged to send a CV, unofficial university transcripts, and a brief statement of research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
