Graduate Position in Geospatial Biodiversity

I occasionally have graduate positions for outstanding students in the lab. Graduate students in my lab undertake geospatial-biodiversity studies of insects in human-disturbed landscapes. We use field studies and geographical information systems (GIS) to investigate the effects of land-use on insect species and overall arthropod biodiversity. Outstanding students with an interest and/or expertise in field work, landscape ecology, entomology, GIS and/or computer programming are strongly encouraged to apply. Strong mathematical and statistical skills are required.

Graduate Position in Agent-based Modeling of Beetle Populations

This research on the modeling of populations, movement, and impacts of two exotic beetle species is part of a larger project on the effects of interacting stressors on populations of an endangered bird. This work will involve challenging summer fieldwork in remote locations in southern California. Qualified candidates must be able to work with diverse team members in order to generate sub-models that seemlessly mesh with those of remote collaborators. Coursework or research experience in landscape ecology and quantitative ecology is also greatly beneficial.
The start date for this position is May 16, 2022

Undergraduate Position in the Laboratory

I also occasionally hire undergraduate students to work part-time in the lab. This is a great way for students to get into the research environment.
