LTER sites exist across the country and around the world. These sites provide an opportunity for students to become involved in long term, integrated research. They provide a network for students to exchange ideas, data, and research results. LTER also provides a forum for collaboration at large meetings, at which time students from the diverse LTER communities can come together to discuss such issues as job opportunities, gender and minority issues, international programs, and to meet fellow students and Principal Investigators from other sites. There are also numerous cross-site research opportunities, sometimes including international travel, to explore research programs at International LTER sites.
We welcome your involvement in our group of graduate student at the HJ Andrews LTER. The purpose of this group is to keep you informed of LTER events (HJA Symposium, HJA Daze, LTER monthly meetings, job openings, etc.) and to keep you in contact with your peers - graduate students from many disciplines. You may be funded by the LTER, may have a major professor who is funded by the LTER, may be working at the Andrews but don't get funding from LTER, or you simply may be interested in long-term studies and want to be part of a larger network of similar-minded researchers.
Please contact a graduate student representative if you have any further questions about LTER.
