Graduate Student Research Assistantships in Aquatic Ecology

The Resetarits Lab (http://www.olemiss.edu/resetaritslab/) at The University
of Mississippi currently has openings for highly qualified MS or PhD.
students as a Doherty Research Assistant in Freshwater Biology.  These are
12 month Research Assistantships in the Department of Biology, providing
full 5 years of support for PhD. students, and 2 full years for MS students.
 Current stipend is 22 (MS), 25-28 (PhD.)/year, with health insurance, and
full tuition remission.  Recipients are expected to design and implement
independent dissertation projects (empirical and/or theoretical) at the
interface between community, behavioral, and evolutionary ecology in
freshwater systems, or at the freshwater/terrestrial interface, as well as
participate in ongoing projects.  Current studies in the Lab address a
variety of questions, including the role of habitat selection in the
assembly of communities and the dynamics of metacommunities, the role of
diversity and species interactions in community assembly/ecosystem function,
life history evolution in amphibians and insects, and biochemical,
behavioral, evolution and community dynamics of chemical camouflage.   Study
organisms include amphibians, aquatic insects, other aquatic invertebrates,
and fish, while focal habitats range from small ephemeral ponds to headwater
mountain streams.  Funding for past and ongoing research has come primarily
from the National Science Foundation, along with EPA/NASA, and the Henry L.
and Grace Doherty Foundation.

The Resetarits Lab is based in the Department of Biology and housed
primarily at the University of Mississippi Field Station (UMFS),
approximately 11 miles from the main campus in Oxford.  The Lab has
outstanding space and facilities and access to over 200 experimental ponds
and wetlands at the UMFS (check us out on Google maps
[log in to unmask],-89.3935815,15.02z)" target="_blank">https:[log in to unmask],-89.3935815,15.02z), hundreds of
mesocosms of various sizes for experimental work, and dedicated field
vehicles.  The Department of Biology at The University of Mississippi has an
organismal focus, including a dynamic and growing group of ecologists and
evolutionary biologists (http://biology.olemiss.edu/).  The University of
Mississippi is dedicated to fostering diversity at all levels within the
University community (http://50years.olemiss.edu/ ).  Oxford is a small,
dynamic, progressive community with excellent cultural amenities, great
food, a fun atmosphere, and a reasonable cost of living.  The University of
Mississippi campus is one of the most beautiful in the country.

For more information contact me at the address below.  To begin the
application procedure, please attach a letter of interest, unofficial
transcripts and GRE scores, and resume (including contact information for 3
references) to Dr. William Resetarits ([log in to unmask]).
