PhD student openings in tropical ecology, community ecology, macroecology & conservation – Rice University

The Beaudrot Lab in the Department of BioSciences at Rice University has funding for 1-2 PhD students beginning Fall 2018 in the Graduate Program in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.

We use observational data and quantitative approaches to investigate questions at the interface of ecological theory and conservation biology. Major aims of the lab are to identify the mechanisms that structure tropical vertebrate communities across spatial scales, to understand how tropical mammals and birds respond to global change, and to apply results to biodiversity conservation. More information about the lab is available at

Prospective students should contact Dr. Lydia Beaudrot ( with a description of your background, research interests and CV. The deadline for applications is December 31st and more information can be found at
