M.S. OR PH.D. GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIP (Avian Ecology)
A graduate research assistantship (MS or PhD) is immediately available for
participating in multidisciplinary research, including soil, vegetation,
molecular biology, and terrestrial invertebrates and vertebrates, funded by
National Science Foundation. The research is a large scale ecological
experiment that involves manipulating forest stands with fire and logging
and is a collaboration of Alabama A&M University, Southern Research Station
of USDA Forest Service, and Bankhead National Forest. The study sites are
located in the southern most region of the Appalachian forests in northern
Alabama. The graduate student will evaluate the effects of forest
manipulations on bird community. Territory mapping, mist-nets, and radio
telemetry will be used to quantify the bird species and their habitat
associations. The position requires bird identification (sight, song, and
call). Experience with radio telemetry and mist netting is desired. The
graduate student must be able to work independently and spend long days in
mountain terrain with other organisms (e.g., snakes, mosquitoes, and
ticks). The student needs to actively interact with USDA scientists,
national forest managers, faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students
on the project. The graduate student will receive an annual research
assistantship of $20,000 for MS or $25,000 for Ph.D. The starting date is
flexible, with the possibility to start as soon as possible. Interested
applicants should send a letter of application and a resume including GRE
scores and names of 3 references with phone numbers to: DR. YONG WANG,
Center for Forestry and Ecology, Alabama A&M University, Normal, AL 35762;
Ph. (256) 372-4229; or email to email@example.com. Alabama A&M
University is an 1890 Historically Block University, minority applicants
are specifically encouraged. Applications will be reviewed as they are
received, and the position will be open until a suitable candidate is found.

Thank you very much Okinawa and Rajunpl
I think you also agree that one's posted materials can be a reflection of what he or she does and is involved in. Since I am a forester by professiona, many of my posting on this topic is related to forestry or ecolgy or conservation. However, I occasionally come accross other fields' valuable announcement which would be highly relevant to the forum of this kind where members are from diverse field (among numerous others). I will definitely keep posting any of such.
In the mean time, I am wondering how many of us are forester here ?
Thank you !
