Undergraduate students: we often recruit undergrads as field assistants during the field season (June to September) to help with the field work at the Satakunta experiments. Type of work varies between years and may involve herbivory monitoring, measuring tree growth, leaf, soil or root sampling. Normally we would be able to cover all your travel and accommodation expenses in Finland. If you are interested, please contact Julia Koricheva (julia.koricheva@rhul.ac.uk).

Prospective postgraduate students: if you are interested in using the Satakunta forest diversity experiments for your MSc or PhD projects, please contact Julia Koricheva (julia.koricheva@rhul.ac.uk). If you are UK nationals or EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing your PhD, you are eligible to apply for fully funded PhD studentships available via London NERC DTP http://london-nerc-dtp.org/. There are several PhD projects advertised within this DTP with Julia as the main supervisor. Check also projects advertised by Julia at http://www.findaphd.com/.

Prospective postdocs: if you are interested in doing a postdoc at Koricheva Lab in Royal Holloway University of London and working on forest diversity effects on ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services, please contact Julia Koricheva (julia.koricheva@rhul.ac.uk). We have a lot of long term data already available from Satakunta experiments to test various aspects of forest diversity effects.
