Professor Tony Arnold seeking Research Assistants

Tasks might include research into legal authorities, case-study or field research on watershed institutions, laboratory research on the psychology of participation and procedural justice in the management of common-pool resources, leadership of or participation in community-based watershed planning and management (application of research to specific public problems), various Center administrative tasks, and even gathering of data on water conditions.  Research assistants might also participate in putting together proposals for grant funding for future research and projects.

Preference will be given to students who will be taking environmental and natural resources classes at the Law School in the 2013-14 academic year (or have taken them) so that students have a strong educational foundation in the work that they will be doing.  Preference may be given to students who have backgrounds in the ecological sciences or social sciences.

Interested students should submit a resume and a cover letter to Professor Arnold at:  tony.arnold@louisville.edu no later than March 25, 2013.
