Graduate Assistant - M.S. or Ph.D. - Wetland Plants

Graduate Student Assistantship in Wetland Ecology
~~~~~
I am seeking potential graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.) interested in studying wetland and wetland plant ecology. Current research projects in my lab include development of landscape-scale species distribution models as means of evaluating current hypotheses about plant species invasions and projects related to general conservation ecology of plants in southeastern US ecosystems.

Funding for students initially would be provided through teaching assistantships within the department, but potential exists for research assistantship funding in the future. Information on Graduate Studies in the Department of Biological Sciences is available at http://biology.msstate.edu/degrees/graduate/

The Mississippi State University Department of Biological Sciences is home to faculty with broad research & teaching interests in ecology, evolution, and systematics. Our group has a strong recent record of attracting federal funding from the NSF, USDA, USGS, and EPA. We use a wide array of approaches ranging from field studies and experimentation to molecular approaches including next-generation DNA sequencing and bioinformatics.
