The Hurteau Earth Systems Ecology Lab is recruiting 1-2 PhD students to for
fall 2015 to work on research focused on better understanding how climate
change and disturbance will influence tree species distributions and forest
carbon dynamics.  We use empirical and simulation experiments to address a
range of questions related to this topic.  More information about current
research projects is available at

Qualifications include a BS in ecology, environmental science, forestry,
statistics, or another quantitative discipline.  Programming experience

Information about the graduate program in Biology at the University of New
