Masters Scholarship opportunity with FEL and UCD
There is much unused wood potential in European forests. Most of this is ‘locked’ in forests that belong to an estimated 16 million private forest owners. The SIMWOOD project aims to increase the mobilisation of wood from forests in Europe in a collaborative and sustainable way. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme.
UCD Forestry, together with Forest Enterprises Limited (FEL), would like to recruit a Masters candidate to conduct research into the potential availability of timber and biomass from private forests in Ireland, based on an analysis of biophysical site and stand conditions, spatial landscape and infrastructural factors and industry demand characteristics.
Closing Date for Applications is 4th September, 2015. More details, including how to apply, may be downloaded here.
