PhD Opportunity: Urban Wildlife Ecology - George Mason University

The Conservation in Urban Ecosystems Lab (CUE Lab) at George Mason University is recruiting a PhD student in urban wildlife ecology to begin January 2020. The student will pursue a PhD in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy (https://esp.gmu.edu/) under the guidance of Dr. Travis Gallo (travisgallo.com). This position is currently supported by a two-year graduate research assistantship and two semesters of a graduate teaching assistantship (details below).

Research in our lab focuses on applied ecology in urban ecosystems. We use science to develop effective strategies for integrating nature into urban planning and urban design. The graduate student will focus on the initial development of a long-term wildlife-monitoring project throughout the DC metro. The student will use remotely triggered wildlife cameras (camera traps) to study the distribution, behaviors, and habitat use of urban wildlife species. However, the student will have the flexibility to use additional field methods to study a variety of taxa if they wish. The student will have considerable independence in developing their own research questions, but would be expected to consider how their research might inform urban planning, contribute to biodiversity conservation in urban ecosystems, and improve the lives of urban residents.

The Ph.D. assistantship includes a yearly stipend of $20,000, a tuition waiver (6 credit hours of in-state tuition per semester), and health insurance for two years. Additionally, 2 additional semesters of graduate teaching assistantships will likely be available. Teaching assistantships have similar stipend, tuition wavier, and health insurance as above. Required qualifications include a minimum GPA of 3.0 on all undergraduate or graduate (if entering with a M.S.) coursework and GRE scores exceeding the 50th percentile (the GRE general exam is required for applicants that do not hold an advanced degree - e.g. MA, MS, veterinary, or law or higher - from a regionally accredited institution in the USA). Prior research experience with fieldwork, wildlife-sampling techniques, and knowledge of statistical techniques for analyzing wildlife data is preferred. Priority will be given to applicants with an M.S. degree, but exceptional applicants at the B.S. level will also be considered.

The Department in Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) is an interdisciplinary and collaborative department spanning the natural and social sciences. Research programs within ESP are focused on understanding and implementing the science and policy of biodiversity conservation, sustainability, and the application of the one health approach to ecological and social interactions. Additional information on the graduate program in Environmental Science and Policy can be found here: https://esp.gmu.edu/academic-programs/graduate/programs/.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Travis Gallo (hgallo@gmu.edu) BEFORE applying to GMU. In your email, please include in a single PDF a 1-2 page cover letter with a description of research interests, a copy of your CV (including GRE scores), unofficial undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts, and contact information for three professional references. For full consideration, submit all materials prior to August 31, 2019.
