      Folks,

      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.

      Benefits<http://snr.unl.edu/igert/Students/benefits.asp> include:
      * Stipend of $30,000 annually for 2 to 3 years
      * Externships<http://snr.unl.edu/igert/Students/externships.asp> with

      * Travel funds for conferences
      * Computers
      * Paid tuition and student fees
      * Basic individual student health insurance
      * Applicants must be U.S. citizens, or permanent residents

      Please have interested candidates contact Craig Allen.
