I am looking for a dynamic and mature masters student to conduct research examining mammal interactions with invasive pythons in south Florida. The project will focus on determining if rabbits can be used to concentrate pythons for removal, and to understanding how rodent population dynamics change with the presences of pythons. It is important to note that this study will focus on the ecology of mammals and not on python ecology. The selected applicant will be enrolled in the University of Florida Department of wildlife Ecology and Conservation. In the Fall, they will take classes, TA , and prepare for field research. During the spring and summer they will conduct extensive field work and supervise technicians in south Florida. The project will provide field housing in south Florida. The student will be paid a higher the normal $32,760 annually for 2 ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â½ years. This will include a tuition waiver for at least 1 year (possibly 2). However, the student will be required to pay tuition for they do not receive a waiver (approximately $11,000 annually). I am looking for a self-motivated, independent student with a previous record of academic achievement and extensive field experience. Applicants should have a minimum 3.0 GPA, greater than 310 on the GRE, and experience working with mammals. To apply, send a resume, GRE scores, transcripts, and a list of 3 references along with brief statements describing how you are prepared for graduate school and your career goals to Dr. Robert McCleery email@example.com by April 19, 2019.
