Graduate student positions (MS and PhD) at the interface of invertebrate, community and global change ecology at BGSU
The Pelini Lab seeks students interested in assessing the effects of global change on invertebrates (e.g., butterflies, ants, and soil invertebrates) and the consequences of those responses on other taxa (e.g., plants,
microbes) and ecosystem processes (e.g., decomposition, carbon cycling). We work in multiple locations including the eastern US, Hawaii, and the Great Lakes region. See http://personal.bgsu.edu/~spelini/index.html for more information.
Experience conducting field, lab, or greenhouse experiments is preferred, and work with invertebrates and/or food web dynamics is strongly favored.
The anticipated start date is August 2014, but we welcome candidates who are willing to start as early as May 2014.
Bowling Green State University, OH (18,000 students) is at the western end of Lake Erie, and in close proximity to remnant oak-savanna, prairies and fragmented forest-agroecosytem complexes. With a low cost of living and recognized as one of the best cities in Ohio, Bowling Green is also within easy driving distance of Columbus, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and Cleveland.
The department application deadline is Feb 1. See http://www.bgsu.edu/departments/biology/grad/request.html. Interested candidates should contact Shannon Pelini at email@example.com well before this deadline. Please include a CV, a brief overview of your previous research experience/interests, and GRE scores.
