Graduate Position in Aquatic Ecology

Graduate Position in Aquatic Ecology

Position: Graduate Position in Aquatic Ecology
Entity: Pennsylvania State University
Location: State College, PA
Term: 2-4 years
Deadline: December 1, 2023

“We are recruiting a MS/PhD student interested in restoration ecology to work on a new project. Stream restoration projects do not often achieve the desired ecological uplift of restoring benthic macroinvertebrate biodiversity, and our project seeks to evaluate the potential of using benthic macroinvertebrate translocations from pristine streams to restored streams in restoring macroinvertebrate biodiversity in a manipulative field experiment. The student would have the opportunity to learn new techniques in using morphological methods to identify benthic macroinvertebrates.

Funds are available to fully support either a MS for two years or a PhD student for four years. The graduate student would begin enrollment in the Fall 2024, but we have funds to allow the student to begin working on the project beginning in Summer 2024.

Interested applicants are encouraged to complete an online google form to express their interest, which includes the submission of a CV/resume and a cover letter that describes their prior academic and professional experience, their interest in the position, and a description of how this graduate opportunity aligns with their career goals. Graduate applications to the Penn State Intercollegiate Graduate Degree Program in Ecology and the Wildlife and Fisheries Science Graduate Program are accepted at any time; however, to receive full consideration for fellowships, campus interview, and financial aid, students should apply through the graduate college by December 1.”
