Position available: Ecology and evolution in forest ecosystems

The Garnas lab (https://colsa.unh.edu/faculty/garnas) seeks a highly motivated graduate student (MSc or PhD – PhD preferred) to begin in Fall 2017. The topic of the successful student’s research is flexible but will fall broadly within the current themes of our lab, namely the ecology and evolution of insects, fungi, or interactions therein within forested systems, particular in the context of biological invasion.  We use a variety of approaches including field and lab experiments, genetic tools including NextGen technologies, and modeling to address questions relevant to forest dynamics and forest pestilence. Creative, dynamic students with broad interests in ecology and evolution are encouraged to apply.

The University of New Hampshire and the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment are home to a vibrant community of productive researchers with a strong commitment to student success.  Located in the town of Durham, UNH is a beautiful campus surrounded by forest and natural landscapes.  Only 30 minutes from the sea and less than 2 hours from the White Mountains, outdoor and other recreational activities abound, including right on campus. 

Interested applicants, please send:
- a CV
- a brief summary of research interests and any relevant experience
- contact information for three references

as a single pdf file to jeff.garnas@unh.edu.  Position will be open until filled.
