Opportunity for MS degree focusing on forest science and information management with the Andrews Forest LTER
The HJ Andrews Experimental Forest and Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Site has funding for a student to pursue a Master’s Degree focusing on Information Management in the Forest Ecosystems and Society Department, starting by Fall 2016. The ideal student would have a mix of interests in ecology, natural resources and computer science and be interested in using tools such as MatLab, Python, R, SQL Server and other SQL solutions. The Thesis project would involve analysis, modelling, or visualization of a long term dataset to address an ecological question. This would be an ideal opportunity for someone wanting to learn how to evaluate and manage extensive long-term, short-term, and streaming data and to work with scientists and researchers from a variety of disciplines. For more information, please contact Mark Schulze, Andrews Forest Director (mark.schulze@oregonstate.edu) or Sherri Johnson, USFS Team Lead, Andrews Experimental Forest (sherrijohnson@fs.fed.us).
