I am looking for rigorously trained students interested in ecological approaches to management and sustainability. I am not wedded to any topic or idea but rather motivated by a passion for both application and advancing fundamental insight, without consideration for disciplinary boundaries but recognizing the importance of disciplinary traditions for successful scholarship.
Ideal candidates will be savvy about one or more of the following and interested in at least three:
(a) ecological dynamics
(b) quantitative analysis and modeling
(c) social systems, including the advantages and limitations of economic valuation
(d) ecosystem-based management
(e) and user-oriented sustainability frameworks and processes (e.g., Life-Cycle Analysis).
