MS position – Connecticut
Agency University of Connecticut Location Storrs, CT Job Category Graduate Assistantships Salary RA or TA support and health benefits Start Date 08/21/2017 Last Date to Apply 07/31/2017 Description Seeking a highly motivated student for an MS graduate assistantship at the University of Connecticut. The student will be a member of the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment and the UConn Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation Center. The research project will quantify wildlife response to timber harvest treatments within forested wetlands. The MS student will be responsible for acoustic and camera surveys of wildlife within forested wetlands, before and after timber harvest. We anticipate a community response that spans forest-associated species (e.g., wood frogs, bats) to early successional species (e.g., cottontails, birds). The student may also contribute to a larger bobcat project that uses cameras to quantify state-wide occupancy patterns for bobcat and its prey. Preferred start date is Fall Semester 2017. I will begin reviewing applications on July 5th and continue until position is filled. Qualifications Applicants must have BS is wildlife ecology or related discipline, strong academic record, and demonstrated interest in forest management. Applicants with previous experience working in harsh field conditions (e.g, clearcuts), maintaining databases of photos, and basic GIS skills will be most competitive. Strong quantitative skills with some previous exposure to occupancy models is also desired. Successful applicants will demonstrate an ability to supervise undergraduates, to conduct analyses, and to publish peer-review articles.
