PhD Research Assistantship in Terrestrial Food Web Ecology

University of Wisconsin - Madison

We are looking for a motivated student interested in pursuing a PhD at the
UW-Madison as part of the Gratton Lab studying the interactions between
aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.  This work takes place at a biologically
rich and scenic area in northeast Iceland, centered on Lake Myvatn.  An
ideal candidate needs to have a solid background in biology or ecology, have
some prior research or field experience, and be able work in Iceland for
summer field work.  Candidates should have interests in arthropod food web
ecology, community ecology, aquatic-terrestrial linkages, linkages between
below- and above-ground food webs and/or the role of arthropods in ecosystem
