Subject: [ECOLOG-L] Graduate Student Position: UNew Hampshire Small Mammal
Ph.D. Opportunity in Small Mammal Biodiversity at the University of New
I am currently accepting graduate students interested in the community
ecology, landscape ecology and historical ecology of small mammals.
Applicants should be independent and highly motivated. Previous field and/or
research experience (e.g., Masters Degree or independent research
experience) is preferred.
Current research in our lab examines the impact of climate change and human
land use on species' distributions and community dynamics, and the processes
shaping patterns of diversity along environmental and disturbance gradients.
We address these topics using a combination of historical museum records,
field surveys and experiments, and GIS. Further information can be found at:
http://www.nre.unh.edu/rebecca-j-rowe and http://home.utah.edu/~u0547417/.
Future work will include projects focused on both the New England region and
the Great Basin.
The Department of Natural Resources and the Environment
(http://www.nre.unh.edu/) is part of an interdepartmental Ph.D. program in
Natural Resources & Earth Systems Science (NRESS). The program has an
emphasis on interdisciplinary training in environmental and earth sciences,
life sciences, social sciences, and policy. Details about the program and
the application process can be found at: http://www.unh.edu/nressphd/. The
University of New Hampshire is a Research-I, Land, Sea and Space Grant
University recognized both nationally and internationally for research
excellence in ecology, environmental science, geosciences and forestry.
Located in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, members of the UNH
community enjoy the high quality of life and beautiful natural surroundings
the region provides.
