Graduate Student Opportunities

Graduate student opportunities arise depending on current projects and availability of funding. Applicants typically have a background in environment and resource studies/science, geography or planning.

Research often occurs in a cross-cultural context and applicants should possess initiative, independence and an ability to adapt to challenging conditions. International experience is often an asset but not required. Openness to interdisciplinary research is a must.

Research assistantships and funds to cover field research costs  (travel, accommodation, community research assistants) are often associated with graduate students opportunities.

In addition, graduate students often receive annual base funding in the form of teaching assistantships and scholarships provided by the school or faculty. Details on graduate studies are available on the School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability home page and on the Faculty of Environment website.
