Graduate Research Assistantships: Ecology of container mosquitoes

Openings for up to two graduate research assistants (Ph.D. or M.S.) are anticipated to begin in February 2005 (subject to NIH budget approval). Research involves effects of interspecific competition and predation among invasive container-dwelling mosquitoes in North America, emphasizing processes leading to coexistence or exclusion of invasive species and resident species. Graduate students will have the opportunity to develop new research questions within the context of the overall goals of the project. Undegraduate or Master’s degree in ecology, biology, or related disciplines, interest or experience in work with insects, and availability for field work in Florida and Illinois required. Strong background in GIS, ecology of disease, modeling, or aquatic ecology preferred.
Funding is anticipated for up to 5 years. Starting salary $17,400 plus tuition waiver (contingent on budgetary approval).
