PhD in Wildlife Science


Texas A&M University


College Station, TX


United States

Last Date to Apply:

None provided
Open until filled


We are seeking a graduate student to pursue a PhD in Wildlife Science at Texas A&M University in cooperation with the East Foundation (www.eastfoundation.net). The project will focus on one or more of the Foundation’s properties in south Texas, with an emphasis on investigating the interactions between land management practices (e.g., livestock grazing, prescribed fire) and productivity of animal species (likely emphasis on birds). The graduate student will, however, have wide latitude in how the study is designed and implemented. Duties will also include participating in several on-going research and monitoring programs on wildlife including quail. Baseline data has been collected since 2013. The student will be part of a research team including other graduate students from several universities, along with the Foundation’s research staff. Desired start date is fall semester (August) 2017 but is negotiable.


Competitive applicants will have already received their MS degree (thesis option) in wildlife and related fields. Experience organizing and analyzing data, database management, presenting and publishing ecological research, working collaboratively, and strong backgrounds in quantitative methods and GIS. Experience working with managers of private lands is highly valuable, as is working in remote areas under extreme environmental conditions.


Must have a valid U.S. Driver's License.


Applicants should email the following materials as a single PDF file to Dr. Michael L. Morrison (mlmorrison@tamu.edu): (a) one page cover letter describing relevant experience and professional goals, (b) a resume or curriculum vitae, © GRE scores, (d) (unofficial) transcripts from undergraduate and graduate education, and (e) contact information for three professional references (include current email and phone number).


Consideration of interested applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
