Brief job description (250 words max):
Clemson University faculty member Dr. Jeffrey Hallo is currently seeking well-qualified applicants for the Ph.D. and M.S. programs.  The selected student(s) will take a lead role in a project to apply social science research to support the implementation of a visitor use management strategy for polar bear viewing at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  The ability to travel to and work independently and effectively for four to six weeks (once annually) in the small, native Alaskan village of Kaktovik is required. Experience with social science research, parks and protected areas, and working with indigenous populations is desirable but not required.  Applications are accepted and encouraged from those whose prior education did not include the formal study of recreation and parks. Graduate assistantships are available to well-qualified applicants that cover a student’s tuition and provide a modest but adequate stipend for living.  Also, the Conover Graduate Fellowship is sometimes awarded to outstanding PCAM applicants to support their graduate education.  Applications for fall graduate admissions, assistantships, and fellowships are considered in mid-January of each year.
More information on Clemson University’s PCAM program and our faculty can be found at  Also, if you are interested in applying for our graduate program and the opportunity described above you should contact Dr. Jeffrey Hallo at and include both your CV and a writing sample (e.g., report or paper).
