The Barber Sensory Ecology Lab at Boise State University seeks a Ph.D. student to study the sensory ecology of bat-fire interactions. With funding from the USFS, we aim to accomplish a full BACI (before-after-control-impact) design in areas designated for some of the largest controlled burns ever done in the Western US. We will work in the Fishlake and Dixie National Forests in the mountains of central Utah in collaboration with the Fire and Smoke Model Evaluation Experiment (FASMEE), a multi-agency, interdisciplinary effort to understand fire and smoke behavior. This unprecedented opportunity to experimentally understand how bats respond to fire will inform both applied management objectives and deepen our understanding of basic bat biology and sensory ecology theory. This position is fully funded with a combination of Research and Teaching Assistantships. To apply please send a cover letter and CV to by December 15, 2022. Requirements: M.S. degree in Ecology or related discipline.
M.S. degree in Ecology or related discipline. Experience with R or other programming languages is preferred.
