The Magoulick Lab at the University of Arkansas is accepting applications for a Ph.D. research assistantship. Our research efforts focus on factors affecting population and community dynamics of freshwater fish and invertebrates, especially the role of disturbance in community dynamics, impacts of introduced species in aquatic ecosystems and conservation of aquatic ecosystems. The research assistantship is part of a USGS funded project examining the effect of current and future climate on endangered Yellowcheek Darter (Etheostoma moorei) growth, survival and refuge use. The student would have flexibility to pursue additional research related to the funded project. This project and related work will be carried out using a combination of comparative field studies, field and lab experiments, and modeling approaches.
