A research assistantship is available in the Magoulick Lab at the University of Arkansas to examine landscape- and local-scale habitat influences on distribution and abundance of the crayfish Faxonius eupunctus, Faxonius wagneri and Faxonius roberti in Ozark streams. These species were recently split from Faxonius eupunctus and all are of conservation concern. The student would have the flexibility to pursue additional research related to the funded project.
