Graduate position(s) in arthropod systematics and biodiversity of the southeastern U.S.

The newly established Caterino Arthropod Biodiversity Lab at Clemson
University is looking for highly motivated graduate students (M.S. or
Ph.D.) for the Fall 2014 semester. Specific projects are negotiable,
but will address questions centering on the arthropod diversity of
the southeastern U.S., from the intraspecific to broad faunistic
levels. Projects focused on Coleoptera, incorporating fieldwork,
molecular, morphological, and bioinformatic tools will be preferred.

Interested candidates should have a strong background in evolutionary
and systematic biology, familiarity with laboratory methods applicable to
phylogenetic and phylogeographic problems, and a love of arthropods and
entomological fieldwork. Prospective students will have to qualify for
admission to the graduate program in the School of Agricultural, Forest,
and Environmental Sciences (SAFES). Some initial funding is available,
but students will be expected to actively seek and secure support for
their projects.

Interested students are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Caterino
before applying. Clemson has no particular deadlines for application,
but opportunities for fellowships and other supplementary support will
require more immediate action.
