    A PhD position is available in the Chandler Lab at the University of Georgia to study avian reproductive performance and nest predation over climate gradients in the southern Appalachian Mountains. The PhD student will design and execute field experiments, develop models of spatio-temporal predator-prey dynamics, and forecast the effects of climate change on avian productivity. Study species include Canada Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Veery, and several others with trailing-edge populations in western North Carolina. Eight years of data on distribution and demography are available from the study area. Applicants should have an MS degree in wildlife ecology or a related field, strong quantitative skills, and passerine field experience. The anticipated start date is August 2022. Tuition will be waived and an assistantship of approximately $25,000/yr for four years will be provided. Send a single PDF including a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to Richard Chandler (rchandler@warnell.uga.edu) by November 10, 2021.
