I invite applications for a PhD position in my lab at the University of Texas at Arlington (https://www.uta.edu/biology/passy/lab/home.html). The successful applicant is expected to have expertise in ecology, experience with statistical data analysis, and excellent communication skills. Using extensive national and international databases and statistical modeling, s/he will study the distributions and interspecific interactions of freshwater organisms (algae, macroinvertebrates, and fish) under different climate change scenarios. The project will be at the interface of global change, macroecology, and conservation. It will involve collaboration with a diverse group of students, postdocs, and scientists from my lab, France, and Finland. Additionally, the student will actively participate in the UT Arlington Stream Team, a group of students and members of the public, performing citizen science projects on water quality issues in Texas.
UT Arlington is the second largest institution in the University of Texas system and the seventh fastest growing university in the nation with over 42,000 students. Arlington is situated in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, which is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the US (www.experiencearlington.org).
