University of Alberta: One graduate assistantship (M.S. or Ph.D.) in insect
ecology/forest pest management is available beginning January or May 2004.
The candidate will join a research team to investigate the attack mechanisms
of the mountain pine beetle on lodgepole pines and to develop spatial models
to predict the mortality rates of lodgepole pines attacked by the beetle at
the stand level. We encourage students who is broadly trained in any of the
areas of biology or mathematics/statistics to apply, but would be
particularly interested in students who plan to combine theoretical modeling
and field experiment in their research. The candidate will be co-supervised
by Allan Carroll (Research Scientist in the Pacific Forestry Centre of
Canadian Forest Service in Victoria, BC. Email: acarroll at pfc.cfs.nrcan.gc.ca
<mailto:acarroll at pfc.cfs.nrcan.gc.ca> ) and Fangliang He (Associate
