Graduate students

The Agroecology lab at Dartmouth College is offering a Ph.D. graduate fellowship to begin summer 2021 in Dartmouth’s Graduate Program in Ecology, Evolution, Environment and Society (EEES). The successful applicant will have the opportunity to design and conduct research on the Dartmouth Organic Farm, which borders the Connecticut River and Dartmouth-owned forest, including active maple-sugar bush or on Chinatown urban food supply networks on the east coast. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, critical transition theory, complex hysteretic patterns and land-use change dynamics. Requirements include ability to conceive and conduct original research within the umbrella of a larger project; a background in theory and quantitative analysis; and enthusiasm for collaborative and interdisciplinary agroecology research. The EEES Graduate Program is top tier in terms of intellectual environment, support for graduate students (5 years guaranteed) and success of alumni. To initiate an application, email a CV and statement of interest to Theresa Ong (theresa.w.ong@dartmouth.edu) as soon as possible. Applications should be completed by December 1, 2020 using the online application portal, but applicants are encouraged to reach out to the PI well before this deadline. International applicants are welcome. More information here.

Postdoctoral scholars

I am currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher, details of which TBA shortly. EEES has a postdoctoral fellowship, due in early January. Dartmouth also offers positions through the Society of Fellows, application due September 14, 2020, and the Neukom Institute, application due November 20, 2020. I am always interested in discussing research ideas and funding opportunities with potential postdocs. Please feel free to reach out!

 

Please e-mail Theresa W. Ong if you are interested in any of the above positions and we can discuss your interests and fit with the lab.
