Graduate research assistantship in insect ecology

Funding is available for a graduate research assistantship (M.S.) in the Department of Entomology at Michigan State University.  My lab studies the ecology of insects in agriculture and their interactions with plants and natural enemies.  The current project focuses on the overwintering biology of a specialist insect in different habitats, and the effect of management practices and landscape ecology on overwintering success. Applicants should be highly enthusiastic and interested in working at the interface of ecology, entomology, and agriculture.

The position comes with an annual stipend, full tuition waiver, and benefits package including health insurance.  Preferred start date is Summer 2019.
