Graduate Student Research Assistantship

Department of Plant Biology
University of Vermont

I am looking for MS or PhD students for a newly funded project on the
ecology and evolution of invasive Japanese barberry (Berberis
thunbergii). Planned studies include common garden studies of Japanese
barberry collected from both invasive and native range along a
geographical gradient. However, the successful student would have
freedom to develop their own interests. Potential areas of study
include evolutionary studies, genetic studies, demography, soil plant
feedbacks, and spatial pattern analysis.. Preference will be given to
students who already have MS degrees. Funding is guaranteed for length
of degree (2.5 years for MS, 5 years for PHD). Graduate stipends are
$21,000 and $17,500 for Phd students and MS students, respectively.
Students receive health insurance and a tuition waiver. Interested
students should send a letter of interest, CV and three letters of
reference to Dr. Jane Molofsky, Department of Plant Biology, University
of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont 05405. Email applications are welcomed
