The MSU Department of Forestry seeks outstanding applicants for a new, interdisciplinary PhD training program. Fellowships are available to support students committed to advancing the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of natural, managed and urban forests in a world of increasing human populations and a rapidly changing climate.
Fellowship applicants should be committed to integrating perspectives from multiple disciplines to address emerging ecological, social, economic and technological challenges in environmental science and natural resource management. We seek to build a diverse cohort of incoming fellows and strongly encourage applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in environmental and natural resource sciences including women and African- Hispanic-, Native-, and Asian-Americans.
The MSU Department of Forestry is a vibrant, growing, and internationally recognized unit. We are firmly committed to interdisciplinary education, research, and extension to understand and resolve environmental and natural resource issues. MSU is a large, diverse research institution with state of the art library and research facilities. Fellows in this program can learn from hundreds of faculty conducting teaching and research in environmental sciences across 12 colleges and 40 departments.
