Subject: [ECOLOG-L] Graduate Research Assistantships in Evolutionary Ecology
We are seeking to recruit two highly motivated graduate students (one M.S.
and the other Ph.D.) to study ecological genetic and landscape approaches to
plant community restoration at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
Research will investigate genotype-environment interactions relevant for
plant establishment at restoration sites in high elevation ecosystems.
Prospective students with a background in natural resources, ecology, and/or
population genetics are encouraged to apply.
Qualifications include a strong academic record and interest in evolutionary
ecology and ecological restoration. Evidence of excellent written and
analytical skills, as well as enthusiasm for field and laboratory research
will be a plus. Applicants for the Ph.D. assistantship should have
completed a Master's degree by summer 2012.
Each graduate assistantship includes a generous annual stipend, tuition and
fees, health insurance and research support for either two years (M.S.) or
three years (Ph.D.). To apply, please send application materials, including
a cover letter and copies of transcripts, GRE scores, resume and contact
information for 3 references to Dr. Kristina Hufford:

The University of Wyoming is located in Laramie, a town of 30,000 in the
heart of the Rocky Mountain West. Located on a high plain between the
Laramie and Snowy Range mountains, Laramie has more than 200 days of
sunshine a year and near year-round outdoor activities that include skiing,
hiking, camping, bicycling, fishing and climbing. The community provides
the advantages of a major university and a distinctive identity as an
important city in a frontier state. Laramie is near many of Colorado's
major cities and university communities (Fort Collins: 1 hour; Boulder: 1.5
hours; Denver: 2 hours). More information about the University and its
regional setting is available on the University's website:
(www.uwyo.edu<http://www.uwyo.edu>). More information regarding ongoing
research projects can be found at:
