We are recruiting a PhD student at U. Vermont to focus on the relationship between nature and human well-being, using analytical techniques recently made possible by social media, web search databases, and other "big data".  The student would be co-advised by Taylor Ricketts and Chris Danforth, and would earn a PhD in the Rubenstein School for Environment and Natural Resources.  Please check out Taylor's "join" page for more information and email Taylor if interested.
