      Last Date to Apply: 12/15/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    Graduate position in avian eco-physiology/seasonal biology at North Dakota State University (NDSU).  The Greives lab is recruiting up to two motivated PhD (preferred) or Masters students interested in participating in research projects aimed at understanding how animals integrate environmental signals, time seasonal transitions, and/or the selective pressures shaping seasonality of temperate breeding birds (Red-winged blackbirds and/or Dark-eyed Juncos) and potential cross-seasonal interactions. Specific projects can vary based on research interests but may include investigations of relationships between variation in endocrine ‘phenotypes’ and daily and seasonal timing (e.g. timing of dawn song or seasonal clutch initiation), or investigations of the costs and benefits of overwintering habitat/locations and seasonal timing decisions (e.g. timing of reproduction) and reproductive success.  

    The graduate student would join a department with expertise in organismal biology, ecophysiology, and evolutionary ecology, including three established and collaborative avian behavior/physiology labs (T. Greives, B. Heidinger, P. Klug).  Students will begin August 2020 and will participate in either the Biological Sciences or Environmental and Conservation Sciences graduate program at NDSU. 

    Preferred qualifications include: experience with mist netting, handling and obtaining blood samples from small birds and/or experience with lab techniques including PCR or ELISAs. 

    Competitive stipend funding and tuition waivers via teaching and/or research assistantships are available. If you are interested in this position please contact Dr. Tim Greives at timothy[dot]greives[at]ndsu[dot]edu.  Please include in your email your research experiences as well as your research interests and how these match with research in the Greives lab.  Also please include your degree, GPA and two potential references.
