Prospective students

I welcome applications from graduate students wishing to join the Department of Environment and Society in our graduate degrees in Geography (MS), Environment and Society (MS & PhD) or Ecology (MS & PhD). Applicants must meet minimum admission requirements for the Department of Environment and Society. Prior research experience with R, GIS software, and survey data is helpful for students joining my lab.

Funded research assistantship opportunities are competitive. Highly qualified prospective PhD students may also be considered for selective University fellowships.

To inquire about joining the lab, contact me at peter.howe[at]usu.edu. Inquiries that describe your research interests and provide a CV, unofficial transcript, and GRE scores are most helpful to give me sufficient information about your background.

Students should apply by February 15 for consideration. Earlier applications are helpful for full consideration for financial support. Information for prospective students in the Department of Environment and Society.

    Research assistantship available beginning Fall 2017

    A graduate research assistantship is available in the Department of Environment and Society at Utah State University for prospective MS or PhD students. The graduate RA will work with Dr. Peter Howe on research in the human dimensions of climate change and natural hazards, focusing on risk perceptions of climate change and climate-related extreme weather events. Prior research experience with R, GIS software, survey data analysis, and spatial analysis is strongly preferred. Candidates should also have strong communication skills. Interest in interdisciplinary research focused on climate change adaptation that integrates social and environmental sciences is also preferred.

    Prospective students may also apply to a new NSF-funded graduate research traineeship program in Climate Adaptation Science at USU. More information is available at https://climateadaptation.usu.edu/
