Currently advertising for a funded Ph.D. position at the H. J. Andrews LTER / Oregon State University. The Andrews LTER will be funding a project to examine within-watershed scale patterns of soil moisture and its influence on forest ecosystem processes. Money is available to support a Ph.D. student for 4 years. We are looking for a student to start school in Fall 2015, with field work starting in the following summer (Summer 2016).

The ideal student would be interested in interdisciplinary science, combining knowledge of hydrology, soils, and forest ecology; be interested in working in forested ecosystems; and look forward to field work in rugged, mountainous, forested landscapes and not mind rain.

The H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest is a world class research facility with a large and active research community spanning the basic and applied disciplines of natural resources science.
