M.S. and Ph.D. Fellowships for Graduate Study at the Food-Energy-Water Nexus
Graduate students can work on an existing project examining how Montana agricultural producers integrate climate information into decisions related to drought and water variability or students can develop new projects at the food-energy-water nexus. Both students will be trainees in the UM BRIDGES graduate program, a new NSF-funded National Research Traineeship (NRT) program (note: NRT recently replaced IGERT at NSF). The UM BRIDGES program is designed to provide trainees with interdisciplinary, translational, and professional skills that complement dissertation/thesis research and enable them to compete for a broad range of jobs after graduation. In addition to campus and field-based coursework, trainees participate in workshops, internships, co-labs, and international experiences. For more information about the UM BRIDGES program, please visit: www.umt.edu/bridges. UM BRIDGES is recruiting a cohort of students from a range of disciplines. However, students in the positions described here will work with Dr. Laurie Yung on social science research.

PCAM Faculty member Dr. Jeffrey Hallo is currently seeking well-qualified applicants for the Ph.D. and M.S. programs. The selected student(s) will take a lead role in a project to apply social science research to support the implementation of a visitor use management strategy for polar bear viewing at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
An entry level position. You do have to work a little to get to the actual posting once you get in the careers page. Click "show all jobs" and the NR job is on the second page of postings (as of 8 am 12/1)
Not quite a job, but certainly something to think about if your thoughts run to farming. Rogue Farm Corps trains people to farm, offering intro and intermediate training. I have been teaching a soils field lecture for them the last two years and the participants really seem to be getting a lot out of the program.
