    I am seeking applications for one PhD student to join the Conservation Ecology Research group I lead at the Environmental Studies department at the University of California, Santa Cruz in Fall 2022. Candidates should have experience with independent field research on birds, with a preference for applicants who have worked in tropical regions. Preferred applicants will have completed a master’s degree or have had a few years of independent research experience. The graduate project will involve bird tracking in agricultural landscapes, connectivity modeling, and spatial conservation ecology methods. Applicants should have experience using GIS programs (ArcMap, QGIS, R) and statistical programs (R, or other programming language). To apply, please email your CV and a one-page application letter answering the following questions: 1) describe previous academic and research training, particularly independent research; 2) what types of research questions would you pursue during your PhD?; 3) what are your career goals and why is a PhD important in reaching those goals? 4) why did you choose the Environmental Studies graduate program at UCSC and our research group in particular? to nocampop@ucsc.edu no later than Nov 30th. UCSC graduate applications close Dec 10th.
