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 yong.wang@email.aamu.edu. 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 !

Benktesh
