    The Perlut Lab (https://sites.une.edu/perlutlab/) is recruiting an MS student (Research Assistant; Biological Sciences) to study the nesting and migration ecology of a recently restored, but highly isolated population of Bobolinks and Savannah Sparrows, nesting in southeastern NY.  This is a collaborative sister project to our long-term study of these species in Vermont--exploring how migratory birds full annual life-cycle is influenced by agriculture and how we can create systems that balance both farming and bird needs.
