  • MS position - Mechanisms and evolution of alarm calls

    • Employer: Western Michigan University
      Location: Kalamazoo, MI
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 01/22/2021
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    We are looking for a motivated student to join our Sound Ecology lab for a Masters degree in the Department of Biological Sciences at Western Michigan University. The student will be involved in an NSF-funded collaborative research project exploring mechanisms and evolution of alarm calling in warblers, involving researchers at WMU and the University of Illinois. We are a supportive group and we’re looking for students who would add to a positive and cooperative lab environment. The position would begin in May or September 2021 and include up to three years of support through our grant and teaching assistantships. We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

    If you’re interested, please contact Prof. Sharon Gill (sharon.gill@wmich.edu) and tell me about yourself. Include a brief description of your interests and experience in research, your current resume, and contact information for three references.

    You’ll need a BS in ecology, wildlife, organismal biology, or related fields, with experience working in the field, preferably with birds. Let me know if you have field experience in nest searching and behavioral observation, as well as experience with sound analysis and data management. Bird banding experience would be an asset, but not required.
