Ph.D. Level Graduate Research Assistantship

We seek an advanced graduate student with strong interdisciplinary interests in biogeography, ecology and evolution to join us in an NSF-funded project studying body size of mammals that inhabit islands. This project will be conducted collaboratively with Drs. Mark V. Lomolino – College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, NY, USA (biogeographer and community ecologist), Dov F. Sax – Brown University, Providence, RI, USA (an invasion biologist) and Dr. Maria R. Palombo - Universit√† degli Studi “La Sapienza” – Roma, Italy (a vertebrate paleontologist) to examine a diverse array of evidence for changes in body size that occur following colonization of islands by mammals. The position will involve significant travel, but will be based in the research lab of Dr. Lomolino in Syracuse, NY. The position is available beginning January, 2011, or earlier depending on availability of applicant. Please send a curriculum vitae and letter of inquiry as email attachments to Professor Lomolino at island@esf.edu; please fill in the subject line as “Island GRA”.
