The Guindre-Parker lab in the Department of Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology at Kennesaw State University is recruiting applicants wishing to pursue a MS degree in animal behavior, toxicity and physiology starting Fall 2023. Our lab studies the behavior and physiology of birds found along an urban to rural gradient in Georgia. Students will work as part of a team and learn field and laboratory skills, including trapping birds, collecting biological and environmental samples, and measuring animal physiology.

Graduate students are eligible for tuition waivers and are paid via research assistantships through an NSF grant. 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. The deadline for early admission is January 15th 2023.
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Guindre-Parker by Dec 1st 2022. I will set up phone interviews and notify applicants who are encouraged to apply to the MSIB program after the interview stage. Students with previous research experience trapping or handling birds or performing other biological fieldwork are especially encouraged to apply.
