Student Opportunities

A core mission of the Colorado Forest Restoration Institute is to provide opportunities for CSU undergraduate and graduate students to get hands on experience in the field of restoration ecology research through paid work, internships, and independent study projects.  Hiring for the summer field crew typically occurs mid-spring; however, interested students are encouraged to contact Emma Williams to inquire about future opportunities or other ways to get involved in forest restoration ecology at CSU.

Opening New Doors

Student field crew members work full time over summer, with the potential to work  part time during the school year in the lab. The student lab/field crew members support our restoration ecology research projects in all ways, including collecting data in the field, processing of soil, fuels, and plant samples, performing data entry, plant identification, and other tasks as needed. Applicants must be CSU students and must display an interest in restoration ecology and natural resource research. Please note that CFRI is not currently hiring at this time for student field crew positions or other employment opportunities.
