    The Boves and Neuman-Lee Labs at Arkansas State University are seeking one graduate student (M.S. in Biology) to conduct research in the fields of avian ecology, physiology, and biogeography. The specific project will involve studying how egg composition (in Prothonotary Warblers) varies across space and how this variation may influence both individual traits and the ability of species to respond to climate change. The project will involve both field and lab work; fieldwork will occur in Arkansas and Minnesota/Wisconsin.    

    Competitive candidates will possess a passion for avian ecology or physiology, a B.S. in biology, ecology, or closely related field and an undergraduate GPA >3.2. The strongest candidates will also have: experience or interest in working a lab environment, substantial field experience, great organizational abilities and quantitative skills, excellent oral and written communications skills, an ability to work with collaborators from across the eastern United States, and some personnel management experience.

    The student will be eligible for a teaching assistantship for three years that provides a 9-month stipend ($10,600/9-mo.) and $8,600 in dedicated funding for research and summer salary. The student would also be eligible to apply for an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Conservation Scholarship, which, if received, would cover most of the tuition and fees for the student’s time at Arkansas State University.

    To Apply: Send a single pdf that includes: 1) a cover letter highlighting your interest and experience, 2) your CV, and 3) names and contact information for 3 references to Drs. Than Boves and Lori Neuman-Lee at tboves@astate.edu and lneumanlee@astate.edu. Review of applications will occur as they are received and will end when a qualified candidate is found (which will be before 15 February 2022).
