Fall internship with the Center for Conservation Innovation at Defenders of Wildlife

Subject: Fall internship with the Center for Conservation Innovation at Defenders of Wildlife

Defenders of Wildlife welcomes applicants to intern with the Center for Conservation Innovation this fall! Applicants are encouraged to apply by August 15 (extended deadline) for best consideration. The internship is unpaid, but we encourage students to seek funding or course credit opportunities through their schools or outside sources.


The internship is an opportunity for an advanced college, graduate, or post-graduate student to work with CCI and other Defenders staff at the interface of science and national conservation policy. In this position, the intern may help collect and analyze large spatial and non-spatial datasets, create published reports, scientific articles, web applications, and maps related to the conservation of species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Skill development will vary with the specific project, but the intern will generally have the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of how the ESA is implemented in practice and experience in programming, conservation data and policy science, statistical analyses, GIS, remote sensing, scientific writing and creating interactive data visualizations.

Two internship tracks are available:

Policy and species conservation status – This track will involve projects that focus on ESA regulations and their effectiveness in recovering threatened and endangered species. The intern will learn to assess and analyze ESA documents (e.g., species listings, species status assessments, species 5-year reviews, biological opinions), evaluate species biological needs and conservation status, conduct statistical analyses and create online tools for visualizing data. Projects will aim to measure policy effectiveness and develop recommendations to improve species conservation.

Geospatial analysis and conservation tool development – This track will involve projects that focus on technical advances to creating, analyzing, and presenting spatial conservation data. The intern will learn and refine their geospatial and programming skills by assisting with the development of new approaches, algorithms and tools to quantify and map the status and distribution of species and their habitats.
Projects aim to measure and evaluate policy effectiveness and compliance in conserving species and their habitat on-the-ground.

Graduate assistantships in quantitative eco-evolutionary dynamics at the University of Wyoming

Subject: Graduate assistantships in quantitative eco-evolutionary dynamics at the University of Wyoming

The Weiss-Lehman lab is looking for 1-2 graduate students to start in the Program in Ecology at the University of Wyoming for the fall of 2019. Lab research focuses on the eco-evolutionary dynamics of populations responding to global change, including the spatial dynamics of invasive species spread and populations moving in response to climate change. Our research links quantitative models to empirical data through the use of targeted experiments and laboratory microcosms. The lab currently uses microcosms of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum, as they can be manipulated in a number of important ways, operate on tractable timelines for graduate projects (~10 generations in a year), and have a high-quality reference genome available. However, I am happy for students to work in other systems as well, so long as the overall questions fit within the scope of the lab’s research. I am looking for students with a strong quantitative background and a demonstrated ability to work independently and in group settings as they develop their own dissertation projects.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please send me an email with a brief statement detailing your interest in the lab and a current CV including your previous research experience, relevant coursework, and GPA. I will also be at the ESA meeting in New Orleans and the ESEB meeting in Montpellier this year to meet in person and discuss research interests and possible projects.

University and Local Environment: The University of Wyoming has a total enrollment of
12,000 full-time students. Students will be housed in the Botany department, with PhD students partaking in the cross-departmental program in ecology. The university is located in Laramie, a small mountain town close to several different mountain ranges providing plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. It is also within a day’s drive of three national parks (Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Rocky Mountain National Park).

graduate positions in population/community ecology with Jeremy Fox at University of Calgary

Subject: graduate positions in population/community ecology with Jeremy Fox at University of Calgary

I’m seeking two graduate students (PhD or MSc) to join my lab at the University of Calgary in fall 2019 (earlier start possible).

I do fundamental work in population ecology, community ecology, and evolution, often combining mathematical modeling with experiments in protist microcosms and other tractable model systems. Right now I’m working on spatial synchrony of population cycles, species coexistence, and other projects. If the idea of collecting hundreds of generations of experimental data in a single summer sounds attractive to you, you should definitely get in touch with me. 🙂 Lately, I’m also getting into projects based on synthesizing data collected by others, as in my work applying the Price equation to quantify species selection in macroevolution. Here’s my lab website with more on what I’m working on these days:

The University of Calgary is one of Canada’s leading research universities.
The Biological Sciences Dept. has over 50 faculty and 180 graduate students, so it’s an active intellectual and social environment ( Calgary is a nice city of 1.2 million people, close to the Canadian Rockies with all the opportunities for recreation that implies. And it’s in Canada, which is a great country.

All graduate students get guaranteed funding for 2 years (MSc) or 4 years
(PhD) (note: that’s long enough to complete your degree; Canadian graduate programs are a bit shorter than in the US).

If you’re interested, drop me a line ( Please include a transcript (unofficial is fine) and cv.
