Ecological & Environmental Informatics (PhD opportunity, multiple positions/fellowships)
Do you have a passion for environmental science and an interest in data analysis? The new T3 PhD program in Ecological and Environmental Informatics (EEI) at Northern Arizona University (NAU) integrates informatics (data science, computing, statistical analysis, synthesis, modeling) ecology, climate science, and other environmental science disciplines to address pressing environmental issues. Our goal is to train T-shaped scientists to employ team-based research skills, and to prepare students for a diverse range of career paths. Our program is funded through a prestigious National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) award, and is supported by world-class faculty whose research interests and expertise span a broad range of fields.
Exceptional applicants will receive 1- to 2-year fellowships ($30,000/year stipend, tuition benefits, health insurance); further funding is available via faculty grants and/or teaching assistantships.
Applications are due January 1, 2018; prospective students should apply to the Informatics and Computing (INF) program through NAU’s graduate school, and explicitly indicate interest in the EEI T3 program within the personal statement (https://www2.nau.edu/siccs-ecoinfo/index.php/nrt/).
We encourage interested students to contact prospective faculty mentors or the T3 Program Director (Dr. Kiona Ogle, Kiona.Ogle@nau.edu). You can find information about EEI research, faculty interests, other funding opportunities by visiting our website: www2.nau.edu/siccs-ecoinfo.
