US Forest Service Science Sustainability FellowshipsDEADLINE: April 11, 2014
The Philadelphia Field Station at the US Forest Service fosters collaboration and science to sustain the health and diversity of the region’s urban ecosystems and enhance community quality of life within the urban landscape. Our research projects span urban ecology and urban forestry, and include projects in urban tree mortality and growth, citizen science, urban tree canopy, urban forest ecosystem services, forest fragmentation, and health and safety impacts of green infrastructure.
The Field Station offers a Science Sustainability Fellowship for students as well as internship positions. Applications for the fellowships are due April 11, and for the internships March 21. These are all paid positions for advanced undergraduates or graduate students. Selected students would join a group of interdisciplinary researchers in urban ecology for a summer at our Philadelphia office.
There are four fellowship and two internship opportunities offered in summer 2014:
- Mentored research fellowships about 1) forest fragmentation, 2) urban tree give-away programs, and 3) citizen science and urban tree monitoring.
- One open research fellowship for a student with a self-directed project
- Two research internships for 1) summer urban forestry field work, and 2) office research support.
