GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIP: AQUATIC INVERTEBRATE CONSERVATION There is an opening for a graduate student (Ph.D. or M.S.) interested in conducting research that integrates basic and applied ecology and contributes to conserving the endangered Hine’s emerald dragonfly (Somatochlora hineana). Ongoing research efforts include studies directed at conserving, restoring, or creating new habitat for this species, and efforts to rear this species in captivity. Field research is conducted primarily in Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan. Students interested in predator-prey or predator-predator interactions, and/or the ecology of burrowing crayfish are especially encouraged. Funding for this position is from a combination of grant funded-graduate assistantships and departmental teaching assistantships. If you are interested in conducting research that plays a vital role in saving a rare and unusual species and conserving other aquatic insects, contact Daniel A. Soluk, Dept. of Biology, The University of South Dakota
(email@example.com) for further information. Consideration of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
