Here at the University of Tennessee, we are proud to house a world-class state-of-the-art laboratory for tree-ring research. The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Science is supported by the Department of Geography and the College of Arts and Sciences, supplemented by funds from the National Science Foundation and many private donations. The laboratory is housed in the Burchfiel Geography Building and in the Science and Engineering Research Facility, occupying four spacious, well-equipped rooms with all the amenities. We are a dynamic and energetic group consisting of faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduate students, all actively involved in dendrochronology, engaged in various research projects that cover archaeology to fire history to climate reconstruction. We regularly engage in active research with faculty and graduate students in the Departments of Anthropology, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries, as well as with personnel from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the National Park Service, and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
If you're interesting in joining a dynamic laboratory engaged in the full spectrum of dendrochronological research to further your graduate and professional careers, contact me and I'll be glad to talk with you about opportunities we have available. I can promise you that your training in our laboratory will prepare you for a satisfying and rewarding career upon graduation.
