An MS research assistantship is available in the Ecophysiology lab of Dr. Heidi Renninger in the Department of Forestry (http://www.cfr.msstate.edu/forestry/) at Mississippi State University starting in the Fall, 2018.  Broadly, our lab seeks to understand how the physical environment affects plant physiological functioning in terms of productivity and water use and how environmental change will alter plant and ecosystem function in the future.  We are currently working with short rotation woody biofuel crops to determine environmental vs. genetic controls on productivity, water use and nutrient uptake.  The assistantship includes a stipend, full tuition waiver and health insurance.  More information about the graduate school at Mississippi State University can be found here:  http://www.grad.msstate.edu/.  To learn more about the position, please contact Heidi Renninger (Heidi.Renninger@msstate.edu).  Interested students should submit 1) a letter stating their goals for graduate school 2) academic transcripts and 3) a resume/CV to Dr. Renninger prior to submitting an online application to the graduate school. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable applicant is found.
