Aug 13, 2015
Topic: Potential availability of timber and biomass from private forests in Ireland


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.

Applications are sought from highly motivated individuals who have an excellent academic record (preferably a honours primary degree or equivalent) in forestry or land-use management. The successful candidate should have strong GIS skills and should be capable of independent research as well as team work. Very good oral and written communication skills in English are mandatory. A clean European driver’s licence is also required.

The study will commence as soon as possible. The student will be based with Forest Enterprises Limited (FEL) in Lucan, Co. Dublin for part of the study.  

The Masters Scholarship will be €17,000 per annum for two years, and this will be paid as a tax-free stipend. The tuition fees will be paid directly from the project to UCD.
