The Guindre-Parker lab in the Department of Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology at Kennesaw State University is recruiting enthusiastic and driven applicants wishing to pursue a MS degree in animal behavior and physiology starting Fall 2021. Our lab studies the evolution of behavioral and endocrine flexibility in birds along an urban to rural gradient in Georgia. Students will work as part of a team and learn field and laboratory skills, including monitoring bird nests and behavior, collecting biological samples, and measuring hormones.

Graduate students are eligible for tuition waivers and are funded via teaching and research assistantships. Students would be based at Kennesaw State University’s main campus, where they would join the vibrant Department of Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology, while interacting regularly with colleagues in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. Kennesaw is a beautiful city, minutes from Atlanta. To learn more about the Master of Science in Integrative Biology program (MSIB), visit our website at https://csm.kennesaw.edu/msib/index.php.
