Last Date to Apply
One student is needed to assist in a project addressing both applied and theoretical questions regarding the influence of grassland vegetation management and community structure on bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) ecology and management on Burning Star 5 State Wildlife Area in southern Illinois. Graduate studies will lead to a PhD degree in Zoology or Ecology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Competitive GPA and GRE scores are required.
Competitive candidates will have completed a Bachelor’s and M.S. degree in Wildlife Ecology, Zoology, or a related field; however, exceptional candidates with a Bachelor of Science only will be considered. Demonstrated experience identifying grassland nesting birds and the ability to conduct rigorous fieldwork under extreme conditions will be necessary. Previous experience or a desire to continue a career in avian ecology is desirable, but not essential. Applicants should provide a letter of interest that includes a brief biological sketch and career goals, a resume, GRE scores, and GPA. I will review applications as they are received and continue until the position is filled. Application packets will be provided to candidates selected for further consideration.
