PhD Student Opening - Bahama Oriole Project - Omland Lab UMBC
PhD student sought for conservation biology project on the critically endangered Bahama Oriole. Research team is being led by Kevin Omland, Biology, UMBC, in collaboration with researchers in geography at UMBC (Colin Studds, avian population ecology; Matt Fagan, remote sensing and forest birds) and Scott Sillett (Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute). The student could choose to focus on any one or two aspects of the project including: 1) population size estimation and habitat usage, 2) breeding ecology including cowbird parasitism and predation by introduced predators, 3) remote sensing and details of habitat usage in breeding and non-breeding season (in relation to fire and climate change), and 4) conservation genetics of populations on three different parts of Andros (and relative to the extirpated population from Abaco). Please contact Kevin Omland and look for Omland, Studds and Sillett at the upcoming NAOC meeting in Washington DC. Please send CV and short paragraph on research interests to:
