UNM Ornithology Ph.D. & MS opportunities

Albuquerque, NM


United States

Last Date to Apply:

03 Jan 2018


Dear Students, Ornithologists, and Friends,


We are searching for new graduate students to join UNM Ornithology in the Fall of 2018.

UNM Ornithology is a group of faculty, staff, and students who conduct integrative studies of birds at the University of New Mexico Department of Biology and Museum of Southwestern Biology. Research strengths in our group include biogeography, phylogenomics, adaptation, host-parasite coevolution, and ecological physiology. We collaborate on the growth and curation of the MSB Bird Collection, a global collection of >47,000 specimens and tissues whose research value has grown exponentially over the past three decades.

Graduate students will join a highly collaborative, interactive group consisting of three primary faculty advisors: Michael J. Andersen, Christopher C. Witt, and Blair O. Wolf. The UNM Department of Biology has a tradition of excellence in ornithology, 35 faculty research labs, >100 graduate students, state-of-the-art facilities, and a nurturing environment for prospective ornithologists to develop skills for research success.

The University of New Mexico is a major research university in a state that has spectacular biotic and cultural diversity. Albuquerque is interesting place to live, and grad students agree that it has a low cost of living.


*Application process*
Interested and qualified candidates should browse faculty our web pages and contact individual faculty by email. Both MS and PhD applicants will be considered. Financial support is guaranteed for accepted students and may be provided through teaching assistantships, research assistantships, curatorial assistantships, and/or various internal and external fellowships. Applications are due January 3, 2018.
