Graduate Student Research Assistants
Professor William Moomaw is looking for two graduate student research assistants to help with a major project concerning the role of bioenergy in addressing climate change. There is considerable confusion and misunderstanding of the carbon dioxide and other emissions associated with burning trees and other plants for heat and electricity. In addition to climate related emissions, this study plans to assess the multiple ecosystem services lost when forests and forest lands are used as an energy resource. The project will also assess how soil loss from forests, grasslands and other ecosystems plays a role in climate change. The social justice dimensions and competition for food from the use of biofuels will also be evaluated.

This is a 10-15 hour/week paid position. A commitment through May 2017 is required, with the possibility of an extension.
