Description
We are seeking two graduate students or recently graduated students for participation in an NSF-supported project in behavioral ecology of wild collared lizards in Oklahoma. The project investigates the significance of early-expressed sexual dichromatism and behavior in hatchlings that may carry delayed benefits to males later in life via sexual selection, a phenomenon we call precocial sexual selection. Job is mostly field work in behavioral ecology with some laboratory trials, and is full-time extending to end of October or November. Local, economical, furnished housing is available without the need for a lease, if needed.
