PhD Position in Bat Conservation Genetics, Ohio State

FW by Andy Wilson


PhD position in Bat Conservation Genetics

Labs of H. Lisle Gibbs and Bryan Carstens

Department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology,

Ohio Biodiversity Conservation Partnership

Ohio State University

We seek to recruit a jointly-supervised Ph.D. student, to begin in Fall 2016, to work on the conservation genomics of tree bats. The research would focus on using genomic techniques in combination with other biomarkers (stable isotopes and trace elements) to assess the impact of wind installations on bat populations with the specific project to be decided jointly with the student. The student would join two active labs who actively apply genomic techniques and statistical analyses to range of questions in evolutionary biology, ecology and conservation. The position would be funded through a Graduate Research Assistantship through the Ohio Biodiversity Conservation Partnership and Ohio State University. The Department of EEOB provides year-round financial support (~ $28K/yr plus benefits) for PhD students for the duration of their program.

Interested students should contact Dr. H. Lisle Gibbs, Department of EEOB, Ohio State University at gibbs.128 or Dr. Bryan Carstens at carstens.12 with a statement of interest, a CV, transcripts and GRE scores if available. We will start reviewing applications starting 15 October. Please see the lab ( or and department ( websites for more information.
