Call for Students

We are seeking a PhD student to work on a multidisciplinary project investigating the long-term carbon and nutrient dynamics following clearcut harvesting a red spruce – balsam fir forest in northern Maine. This project has high relevance to sustainable forest management and renewable energy priorities in the modern forest sector for this region. The overall research project involves: quantifying trends in ecosystem carbon and nutrient pools 35 years after clear-cutting the balsam fir-red spruce forest at Weymouth Point paired-watershed study area; comparing 35-year ecosystem carbon pool dynamics with carbon dynamics predicted by an IPCC-relevant forest carbon budget model (e.g. CBM-CFS3); and informing development of criteria and indicators of sustainable forest management (SFM) in forest policy and certification systems adopted for balsam fir – red spruce forests in northern New England.
A BSc Hons. or MSc degree in Forestry, Soil Science, Physical Geography or a related natural resource field is required. A strong foundation in forest ecology, forest soils and biogeochemistry is preferred, and experience with quantitative modeling is highly desired. This position requires working independently and in a team setting with academic, forest industry and federal and state agency collaborators. Strong written and oral communication skills are essential. The project will involve field work at the remote Weymouth Point study area, laboratory analysis at collaborator facilities at the University of Maine, SUNY-ESF in Syracuse, NY and the University of Toronto, and computer modeling of carbon and nutrient dynamics and pools.
