The Integrative Movement lab at Southeastern Louisiana University (www.teagueomara.com) is looking for potential Master's students interested in working on bat movement ecology and physiology. Successful applicants will ideally work on one of two projects: 1) Spatial ecology of greater noctule bats in Doñana National Park, Spain using existing high resolution GPS, air pressure, and accelerometry data or 2) Migration of Mexican free-tailed bats. Students are encouraged to develop their own projects within these systems to understand more about bat movement, physiology, and adaptation.
In both projects, students will develop strong quantitive skills based in open-source software and will collaborate with international teams of researchers. Interested students should contact Dr. Teague O'Mara (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss project ideas and to get to know the lab and department. Several teaching assistantships are available for Fall 2021.
The MS thesis program at Southeastern is for students who are research oriented and wish to pursue a Ph.D. or work in a research oriented field upon completion of a masters degree. All applicants must have a minimum of 30 hours of biology credit. The department does not require the GRE for admission.
