MS Opportunity – Plant-Pollinator Networks/Native Bees/Conservation

An MS assistantship is available starting Fall 2018 in the Biological Sciences Department at Southeastern Louisiana University.  The student will conduct studies to characterize plant-pollinator networks in a longleaf pine forest, a conservation priority habitat that requires fire management to survive.  The ideal candidate will be independent, highly motivated, and have interests in community ecology and conservation biology.  Graduate Assistants in the Biological Sciences Department are guaranteed two years of assistantship support and full tuition waivers.
Why pursue an MS degree? An MS degree is the best choice for many career paths and is also the perfect option for students unsure of their specific research area of interest or whether they want to pursue a PhD.
Southeastern Louisiana University is located in Hammond, LA, which is an easy drive to both New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  The region is known for its diverse, unique terrestrial and wetland habitats, and its abundance of eclectic cultural experiences and activities.  Interested students should submit a letter of interest that includes their GRE scores, a current CV with contact information for three references, and unofficial transcripts directly to Dr. Janice Bossart ( via email attachment.  Review of applications will begin immediately.
