The Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Science at the University of Nevada Reno (https://www.unr.edu/nres) is accepting applications from prospective graduate students for our M.S. and Ph.D programs. NRES is a dynamic, collaborative and highly productive department that has research strengths in 10 core areas: biogeochemistry & soil processes; climate-change impacts; conservation biology; ecohydrology; environmental science; fire ecology; forest ecology & management; landscape ecology; restoration ecology; and wildlife ecology & management. We are conducting cutting-edge research and educating the next generation of scientists to address the critical environmental challenges of our time.
We offer competitive funding packages to accepted graduate students, which include fellowships, research and teaching assistantships, stipends, tuition waivers and health insurance.
Located at 4,500 feet elevation and straddling the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Great Basin Desert, Reno is an amazing place to live and work. Both Outside Magazine and the U.S. News & World Report have ranked Reno one of the top metro areas to live in the United States. The surrounding area offers superb kayaking, paddle boarding, mountain biking, resort and backcountry skiing, hiking and rock climbing. Lake Tahoe, various ski resorts and spectacular wilderness are only minutes away.
Prospective graduate students are encouraged to review the areas of expertise of the NRES faculty and contact those individuals whose research interests them. They are also encouraged to contact the Graduate Program Coordinator ([email protected]) and to review the different graduate programs available to students based in NRES (https://www.unr.edu/nres/graduate-programs). Our earliest deadlines are December 1.
