The Centre for Wildlife Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University is seeking two MSc students to work on projects examining the migration strategies and habitat use of black oystercatchers and the movement ecology of seabirds. Students would be expected to start in May or September 2020. Fieldwork including deployment of gps and geolocator tags will be conducted in Alaska and BC and involve working with USGS and the National Parks Service in Alaska and Environment and Climate Change Canada and Parks Canada in BC. Preference will be given to applicants that would be competitive for research scholarships (NSERC or SFU Graduate Fellowships), that have some prior experience in the capture/handling of birds and/or expertise with the use of GIS tools. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter (indicating why they are seeking an MSc position, their research interests and why they would be interested in joining the graduate program at SFU), a cv and unofficial transcript to Dr. David Green. Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University (firstname.lastname@example.org).
