We have a Ph.D. graduate fellowship available to begin in summer 2021 in Dartmouth’s Graduate Program in Ecology, Evolution, Environment and Society (EEES). The successful candidate will design and conduct original research on biota of the Hubbard Brook Forest as part of the NSF-sponsored Long Term Ecological Research project. Possible study organisms include insects, bats, and other heterotrophs. Possible topic areas include phenology, population dynamics, species interactions, connections between green and brown food webs, connections between biogeochemistry and heterotrophs, and more. Requirements include ability to conceive and conduct original research within the umbrella of a larger project; enthusiasm for field biology and collaborative research; and an interest in linkages among ecology, evolution, ecosystems, and society. The EEES Graduate Program at Dartmouth College is top tier in terms of intellectual environment, support for graduate students, and success of alumni. To initiate an application, email a CV and statement of interest to Hannah ter Hofstede and Matt Ayres. Applications should be completed by 1 December 2020 using the online application portal.
