We have a great opportunity (actual several great opportunities) for
doctoral candidates at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The University of Nebraska-Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit is looking for
a doctoral student to study the benefits of recent pollinator oriented
practices and activities in CRP. The field component of this project is
funded through a State Wildlife Grant, and the doctoral candidate will be a
fellow of the IGERT program. This project is focused on examining the
ecosystem services provided in CRP, with a focus on evaluating pollinators;
however there is potential for the selected candidate to add a wildlife
component for additional taxa of interest.
The IGERT program, funded by the National Science Foundation, strives to
teach fellows about real-world policy applications in the natural resources
arena and enable the transfer of knowledge in a way that is useful to
policymakers in responding to the challenges created by demands for
diminishing resources, and the need to maintain and build resilience in
stressed ecosystems. This approach understands that sound policy and
management decisions cannot be based on one discipline alone, but depend on
the convergence of hard science (i.e. ecology, geosciences, natural
resources), complex analyses of data, the politics of building consensus and
a supportive constituency.
