We are looking for 3 graduate students (2 M.Sc. and 1 Ph.D) to examine the effects of pipeline development on the dynamics of forest songbird nesting success in the boreal forest of the NWT & AB. Students will work in collaboration with the Canadian Wildlife Service, Canadian Environmental Pipeline Association, and the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta. In addition to determining impacts on demographic parameters of songbirds, the project will examine the functional, numerical, and diversity-based responses of predators to pipeline edges in different landscapes. Radio-telemetry, mark-recapture, and passive sampling will be used to determine how animals like gray jays, brown-headed cowbirds, red squirrels, and coyotes use pipelines. Funding is in place for field work to begin in May 2005. The U of A offers a first-class teaching fellowship to accepted applicants supplemented with summer stipends. Students with high academic standing and interests in avian ecology, GIS, predator-prey dynamics, spatial analysis, and a love of studying animals in remote field situations should contact Dr. Erin Bayne at or call 780-492-4165. Applicants please send cover letter, CV, transcripts, and names of three references via e-mail. More details can be found at:
