ALRS PhD Program Open for Applications for the 2018/2019 Academic Year

We are seeking highly motivated individuals possessing a Master’s degree to apply for admission and opportunities for two first year graduate assistantships. ALRS is a unique interdisciplinary doctoral program designed to address the complex problems associated with sustainability of arid lands through integration of the physical, social, and economic sciences. There is a great breadth of opportunity for each student to pursue their unique research interests through development of an individually tailored and rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum that will enable them to pursue their professional goals. We welcome students proceeding directly through graduate work as well as non-traditional students who bring knowledge of real-world applications to their graduate studies. The first year graduate assistantship is designed to allow the student to interact with faculty having common research interests so that they can establish working relationships enabling them to create the foundation for securing research assistantships in subsequent years. The graduate assistantships are at 0.5 FTE and include an out-of-state tuition waiver, registration remission and student health insurance.

Applications are being sought for the 2019/2020 academic year.   Application Deadline: December 1st, 2018
