The Schwinning Lab at Texas State University, San Marcos, is searching for a
graduate student to investigate recruitment dynamics of an invasive C4 grass
(Johnsongrass; Sorghum halepense) in C4 native grasslands. This position is
part of a large-scale, long-term ecological experiment that examines the use
of native prairie species for biofuel production under a range of
cultivation practices. The position is funded through a cooperative
agreement with USDA and includes a tuition waiver and generous stipend. 

Students with an interest and education in plant ecology or physiological
ecology are encouraged to apply to start in the fall semester of 2018. Prior
experience in field research is especially welcome. Please contact Dr. Susan
Schwinning ( for more information about the position and
the project.
