Two R training workshops are being offered at Lacawac Sanctuary and Biological Field Station. The full-day workshops will cover getting data into and out of R, graphing, data manipulation and descriptive statistics, basic statistics (t-test, ANOVA, regressions). Come with questions about your data for advice on approaches in R. Enjoy beautiful Lake Lacawac!
A funded graduate opportunity is available at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to investigate the impact of restoration on a 6 km2 urban forested watershed. Overall project goals are to determine how watershed-scale restoration influences water quality, macroinvertebrate recovery, and groundwater-surface water interactions. Applicants with interest in groundwater-surface water interactions and their relationship to stream chemistry are especially encouraged to apply.
Funding is available for a PhD student interested in a collaborative project focusing on the application of eDNA, species distribution modeling, and decision support systems to amphibian conservation science. The ideal applicant will have a strong interest in applying quantitative analyses to conservation issues and be familiar with R and GIS software, but we encourage all interested students to apply. Funding includes a stipend and waiver of tuition and fees for 4 years.

A grant-supported assistantship (MS or PhD) is available to study relationships between non-point source nutrients in Lake Erie marsh sediments and spread and persistence of invasive Flowering Rush, Butomus umbellatus at the Department of Biological Sciences at Bowling Green State University beginning summer 2018. Research includes conducting field surveys and mesocosm experiments.
We seek a postdoc to collaborate with faculty and students in the laboratory of Prof. James H. Thorp as part of an NSF project to study riverine macrosystems in temperate steppe biomes of the USA and Mongolia. Our project is a collaborative effort of professors, post-docs, graduate students, undergraduates, and technicians from 9 universities, 5 countries, and 3 continents working in areas of macrosystem theory, food webs, fish and invertebrate traits, system metabolism, and hydrology/geomorphology.
