Ofertas de master y doctorado para estudiar aves en Canada

MSc and/or PhD positions in avian evolutionary physiology
Position background: My research group is seeking 1-2 MSc/PhD students
interested in lab and/or field studies of avian physiology. Areas of
planned research include: the impact of temperature during development on
adult physiology, climatic warming as a constraint on activity in wild
birds, and factors that impact the fine-scale movements of individuals
in the field (using automated radio-telemetry). Specific thesis topics
are flexible, and you are encouraged to contribute your ideas.

Requirements: You should have an interest in animal
physiology/evolutionary physiology. Experience and/or interest in use of R
would be an asset (although not required). To apply for an MSc, you will
require a B.Sc. Hons (or equivalent) in Biology or a related field. PhD
applicants will require a completed MSc or equivalent, by the start
date. Positions are open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents,
but strong international candidates are encouraged to apply. We seek a
diversity of ideas and perspectives in the lab, so we especially welcome
applicants from under-represented groups.

Funding: The minimum stipend for an MSc student is $19,274 for each of
2 years; a PhD student is $21,274 for each of 4 years. Students holding
external funding are particularly encouraged to apply.

How to apply: Please send an email with your CV, a brief
statement of research interests and an unofficial transcript to:
garyburness@trentu.ca. Enquires are also welcome.

Start date: Jan 2021. Applications will be considered until positions
are filled.
