Fully funded PhD and MSc in computational and seascape ecology

Dr. Dan Holstein is looking for prospective students to join the Seascape Ecology Lab’s team (https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.seascapelab.com%2F&data=05%7C01%7C%7Cf2af56cec8574bd694fb08da778c623b%7C17f1a87e2a254eaab9df9d439034b080%7C0%7C0%7C637953742123645756%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=EE8%2FX4yc4jhEYys2N3wX9IbwrX5a0%2Fkpn4gTCZOwreQ%3D&reserved=0). The group uses field, lab, and computational methods to understand the ecological implications of animal and material movement in a structured seascape and changing environment.Although dissertation or thesis focus is flexible, work on an NSF-funded project investigating how acidification and warming influences the larval behavior, dispersal, and connectivity of stone crabs is preferred. Experience in computer programming languages or simulation modeling would be fantastic – but most important is a desire to apply computational and simulation methods to the study of animal biology and ecology.Please send an email to dholstein1@lsu.edu, and if possible include a CV that outlines pertinent coursework or experience.
