    Our lab seeks an experienced and highly motivated individual to join the current group of graduate students conducting projects on multiple vertebrate species. Our work focuses on, but is not limited to, rare and endangered species, small mammals including bats, songbirds and raptors, and amphibians and reptiles. An emphasis is placed on studies that generate practical management applications for use by private and state/federal personnel. Projects could include habitat ecology, genetics, behavior, physiology, etc. The specific project has not been specified but will be developed in discussion with Dr. Morrison and the current graduate students in the lab. Individuals with a BS degree plus several years of field and lab experience, and those with a MS degree, are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will select a thesis/dissertation project but also collaborate with other students on ongoing projects. There will be opportunities to serve as a teaching assistant in addition to the research focus. We are an equal opportunity program.


    For MS program, a completed BS degree along with minimum 2 years (or summer season) field and lab experience; minimum 3.3 GPA. GRE scores are required but are considered secondarily to GPA.

    For the PhD program, a completed MS thesis program is preferred, and a minimum of one manuscript from the thesis must have been submitted for peer review. Minimum 3.3 GPA (plus GRE) at undergraduate level also required, Those possessing a BS degree with substantial experience can be considered for the PhD program (i.e., skip the MS) in rare circumstances. All applicants must have at least moderate analytical skills, as indicated by statistics and related courses, including the use of statistical analytical packages. Experience with GIS is helpful but not required.
