PhD student positions

I am looking for 1-2 PhD students to join my lab (Dr. Vladimir Pravosudov, Behavioral and Cognitive Ecology lab, at the University of Nevada Reno).
Research in the lab is focused on behavioral and cognitive ecology of food-caching mountain chickadees along an elevation gradient in Sierra Nevada and we conduct both laboratory and field studies. We have excellent laboratory facilities and a well-established field sites near Truckee, CA (ranging from 6,500 to 8,300 ft in elevation) with numerous nestboxes and RFID- equipped feeder systems designed to test cognitive abilities in wild birds. Our established mountain chickadee system provides excellent opportunities to investigate a broad range of questions. Funding will be provided via either teaching (TA) or research (RA) assistantship. Prior to applying, interested students should contact Dr. Vladimir Pravosudov ( and
email a statement of research interests, previous experiences and a CV.   Graduate students
should apply through the Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology (EECB) program
