Opportunities for Graduate Students

CALMIT faculty members occasionally hire talented students as Graduate Research Assistants. At any given time, the Center employs 15-20 GRA's to work on its many funded projects. The academic programs of our students are typically housed in either the School of Natural Resource Sciences or the Department of Antrhopology and Geography. The faculty supervise graduate committees in those units. From time to time, we also employ GRA's whose graduate programs are in Agronomy and/or Geosciences.

If you believe that you have the credentials to contribute to CALMIT's research programs and you wish to undertake either a Masters or Phd in Natural Resource Sciences, Geography, Agronomy, or Geosciences, feel free to contact the faculty member whose interests are most closely aligned with your own.
