PhD Student in Avian Resilience to Disturbance


Texas A&M University, Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences


College Station, TX


United States

Last Date to Apply:

30 Nov 2017
Open until filled


The Grace Lab at Texas A&M is looking for an avid and motivated birder to conduct a field study on resilience of avian communities in Texas to disturbance. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with the Barboza Lab at TAMU and private foundations in Texas, with opportunities to develop expertise in population demography, ecophysiology, nutrition sciences, and wildlife management.


The project will involve developing a biodiversity monitoring protocol, collecting and analyzing MAPS data, mist netting, and blood/feather sampling for hormone and physiological analyses. Experience with some or all of these activities is preferred, and excellent avian identification skills are required.


If you're interested in the position, e-mail me (jkgrace at TAMU.edu) a CV, cover letter/statement of interest, GRE scores (if available), and unofficial transcript. The start date is flexible, but ideally beginning in mid-Spring 2018.
