Ornithology Exchange
  • PhD Fellowship - Field ecology

    Phil Stouffer
    • Employer: Louisiana State University
      Location: Baton Rouge, LA
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 03/30/2018
      Open Until Filled: No

    Fellowship Opportunity Extended
    The LSU School of Renewable Natural Resources has a fellowship opportunity for an exceptional student to develop a dissertation project. The student would be advised by Phil Stouffer. The research area is open, but would need to match interests in my lab (see http://www.rnr.lsu.edu/people/pstouffer/default.htm). I would be especially open to developing a project connected with Biodiversity Initiative ( http://biodiversityinitiative.org) for work in Equatorial Guinea, but I am open to other ideas from energetic potential students.


    The fellowship, funded by the Louisiana Board of Regents, pays $30,000/year plus tuition. This support would permit extended stints in the field. To be competitive, a student will need an MS in hand by spring 2018, an excellent academic record, ample fieldwork experience, and willingness to seek out small grants to support fieldwork. The student must be a US citizen or permanent resident.


    The main goal of this program is to increase graduate opportunities for underrepresented groups in our program at LSU. I would welcome the chance to endorse a strong candidate from a group that is underrepresented in natural resources and ornithology. As part of the application, the candidate will include a statement describing their commitment to increasing inclusion and diversity in ornithology.
    For more information, see http://www.rnr.lsu.edu/people/pstouffer/studentad.htm, then contact Phil Stouffer (pstouffer at LSU.edu).
