    Ph.D. student positions in Conservation Science; Department of Wildlife, Fish, & Conservation Biology; University of California, Davis

    We are seeking Ph.D. students interested in conservation biology and/or agro-ecology to join the Karp Lab in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California, Davis. The Karp lab (http://karp.ucdavis.edu) has a diversity of ongoing projects focused on (1) understanding patterns of bird biodiversity across climate and land-use gradients, (2) quantifying impacts of alternative agricultural practices on biodiversity-driven ecosystem services and disservices, and (3) identifying tradeoffs among biodiversity and ecosystem services to inform development of multi-functional landscapes.

    Candidates with interest and/or experience in conservation science, ecosystem services, agro-ecology, community ecology, and/or countryside biogeography are encouraged to apply. If interested, please send a current CV with GPA and GRE scores and a brief (<1 page) statement describing your research interests to Daniel Karp (dkarp@ucdavis.edu). Interested applicants would apply to UC Davis’s Graduate Group in Ecology (http://ecology.ucdavis.edu/), which is consistently ranked as one of the top ecology graduate programs in the United States. Applications are due Dec. 20, 2018.  Underrepresented minorities, women, and those with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

    The University of California, Davis is a Research I public university located in the Central Valley of California. Local ecological research activities are possible in the diverse farmland, forests, wetlands, and grasslands that typify the area. Easy access to the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the coast provides for a suite of recreational activities. Davis is also adjacent to Sacramento, a burgeoning metropolitan area, and close to San Francisco and Berkeley.
