We seek a highly motivated Ph.D. student to examine ungulate population dynamics in the South Dakota. The student’s research will develop and expand our understanding of pronghorn movement, habitat use, and population dynamics. The research is highly collaborative and will involve frequent interaction with personnel from South Dakota Department of Game, Fish, and Parks, students working on complementary research projects, and local landowners; we therefore seek a student who is committed to fostering positive working relationships with all collaborators. The student will be supervised by Dr. Paul Lukacs in the Wildlife Biology Program at the University of Montana. Applicants should meet or exceed the minimum requirements for admission to the Ph.D. program in Wildlife Biology. For more information about the position, please contact Paul Lukacs (email@example.com). Please include a cover letter, CV, transcripts and GRE scores.
Applicants should meet the minimum qualifications for the PhD Program in Wildlife Biology at the University of Montana (http://www.cfc.umt.edu/wbio). An MS degree in Wildlife Biology, Ecology, Statistics, or related field is preferred.
