Dr. Salli Dymond is seeking a Ph.D. graduate research assistant (GRA) to join her research group at Northern Arizona University (NAU) beginning January 2024. The GRA will work on a collaborative research project with Dr. Teki Sankey (NAU), Dr. Jackson Leonard (USFS) and Dr. Joel Biederman (ARS) investigating the ecohydrological impacts of thinning southwestern forests. Specifically, this field-intensive project will comprehensively assess the long-term ecohydrological impacts of thinning treatments across the Upper Verde watershed in northern Arizona. Results from this study will inform land management and restoration efforts in the region, particularly in watersheds that are facing a multitude of disturbance threats. GRA duties include the installation, collection, analysis, and synthesis of quantitative hydrological, geochemical, and ecological data for peer-reviewed publications.
Interested individuals must submit a CV, one-page cover letter, and contact information for 2-3 professional references to Dr. Dymond via email (email@example.com) by October 22, 2023. The selected candidate must then apply and be accepted to the NAU School of Forestry graduate program for January 2024.
