The Barrett Lab at Clemson University is accepting applications for a PhD student who would start August 2018. Applicants should be self-motivated and also capable of working as part of a team. The ideal applicant will have experience in ecology or conservation biology, as well as competencies in statistical analysis, technical writing, and GIS. The project associated with the position is flexible, but applicants should visit the Barrett Lab webpage to review recent publications and on-going research activities to make sure their interests match the general themes of the lab.
The position is based in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation and is supported by a Teaching Assistantship. The TA consists of an online Masters-level wetlands class during fall semesters, so a completed MS is required for applicants and previous teaching experience is strongly desired.
To apply please submit (1) a cover letter explaining your interest in the position, your qualifications, and any specific research areas you hope to pursue at Clemson, and (2) a CV. Please be sure to include your GPA (undergrad and graduate), GRE scores, and contact information for 3 references somewhere within your CV. Documents should be submitted via email to email@example.com as a single PDF file with the subject heading “PhD application”. Applications must be received by February 11, 2018 to receive full consideration.
