  • PhD Bird Conservation Ecology

    Natalia Ocampo-Peñuela
    • Employer: University of California, Santa Cruz
      Location: Santa Cruz, CA
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 11/15/2022
      Open Until Filled: No

    The Conservation Ecology research group in the Environmental Studies Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz led by Dr. Natalia Ocampo-Peñuela, invites applications for PhD students for Fall 2023. Our research focuses on using spatial tools to inform (mostly bird) conservation prioritization and action in biodiversity hotspots. For this year, I am looking for someone interested in: 1) studying bird functional diversity as a response to landscape configuration and change; or 2) developing and applying machine-learning powered habitat connectivity models for conservation; and/or 3) studying birdwatching tourism from a conservation and economics perspective in Colombia.

    Applicants should have training in ecology, biology, or environmental science, and experience with independent research. Ideally some experience with spatial analysis and GIS/programming.

    I especially encourage applications from students from groups underrepresented in science. International applicants are welcome as long as they can bring their own funding. This is due to the fee structure in the University of California system.  

    To apply, please email nocampop@ucsc.edu and I will provide instructions. Deadline is Nov 15th, 2022.
