I am looking for a highly qualified PhD student to start in the summer of 2018 in the Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology graduate program at the University of Nevada, Reno. The graduate student would be involved in a long-term monitoring project on the butterflies of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and would develop research involving (in part) pesticides and declining butterfly populations at lower elevations. The work will be funded through a combination of sources, including RA support for alternating semesters. The University of Nevada, Reno, is situated on the western edge of the Great Basin at the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada and features a high quality of life, especially outdoor activities and mountain scenery.
