Subject: [ECOLOG-L] Graduate position in aquatic ecology at Saint Louis
Graduate position in aquatic ecology at Saint Louis University
A graduate student position in aquatic ecology (M.S. or Ph.D.) is available
in the Department of Biology at Saint Louis University in the lab of Dr.
Jason Knouft. Current research in the lab is generally focused on the
application of GIS techniques to identify the factors regulating diversity
across spatial scales. The student is expected to develop independent
research efforts while having the opportunity to work on several funded
projects which are detailed at
http://pages.slu.edu/faculty/jknouft/index.htm. GIS experience is not a
requirement of the position; however, the student should have an interest in
learning and applying these techniques to questions in aquatic ecology.
Preference will be given to applicants interested in working on fishes,
crayfishes, or mussels.
The student will be primarily supported by a research assistantship which
includes a 9-month salary, tuition, and health benefits. Potential
applicants should email a brief statement of research interests and a CV as
soon as possible to Dr. Jason Knouft ([log in to unmask]). Information about
the graduate program at Saint Louis University can be found at
