Assistantships are on a 12-month basis; they pay $1,675/month and include a full tuition and fee waiver and support for research activities. One student is needed to assist in a project addressing both applied and theoretical questions regarding the influence of grassland vegetation management and community structure on variation in wildlife interactions and community assemblages (quail, passerine, mammal, snake, and invertebrate) on Burning Star 5 State Wildlife Area in southern Illinois. Graduate studies will lead to a PhD degree in Zoology or Ecology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
