The Rubino Lab (www.rubinoresearch.com) at the University of Arkansas—Monticello is searching for exceptional candidates for a funded master’s position beginning January 2022. The assistantship is half time and carries an annual stipend of $15,000 plus tuition.
We are seeking a motivated and independent M.S. student to assist in a conservation social science project related to improving communications about hunting to the general public. Other applicant interests for projects can also be discussed.
This position is ideal for candidates interested in an interdisciplinary education (e.g., eventually seeking employment as a land/wildlife manager or biologist with an interest in working with stakeholders). The degree itself is a master's in forest resources (with concentrations in Forest Science, Geospatial Science, Wildlife Ecology & Management, and Natural Resources Management) with coursework focused on the ecological side and the thesis research project on the social science side.
