      Last Date to Apply: 12/15/2019

    I am seeking an outstanding student to pursue a PhD in Wildlife Ecology in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology (FWE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The student’s dissertation thesis will involve studying the ecology and conservation of forest owl communities in the Sierra Nevada, California. The student will be advised by Dr. Zach Peery (http://labs.russell.wisc.edu/peery/). The student would be joining a large, collaborative research group studying the ecology of threatened species in North America with many opportunities to collaborate with other graduate students and research staff. As such, additional field or lab-based research components could be added depending on shared interests and funding opportunities.



    Applicants must possess bachelor’s degree and preferably a master’s degree in animal ecology or a closely related field. Applicants with a strong background in conservation biology and/or population/community ecology – as well as prior publication experience - will be given preference. The selected student is expected to enroll at the UW-Madison in the Fall Semester of 2020, but will begin field work in May, 2020. More details on the graduate programs in FWE can be found at http://forestandwildlifeecology.wisc.edu/grad.htm.
