Graduate Student Position Opening: I anticipate having an opening in my lab for a new MS or PhD student (PhD preferred) starting in Fall 2018. Work in my lab often includes a combination of analysis of spatial datasets, field observations and experiments, and/or computer modeling. Applicants primarily interested in conducting research on spatial population dynamics of insects are preferred. In addition, applicants interested in learning (or who have prior experience with) remote sensing, GIS, statistics, and/or writing computer code are preferred. Funding for the position would most likely come from a research assistantship funded by Blandy Experimental Farm as well as a half-time teaching assistantship from the Department of Environmental Sciences. However, exceptional applicants may be considered for a departmental fellowship or other fellowships available to those applying for graduate positions at UVA. During summer semesters, the student would be based at Blandy Experimental Farm, a field station for environmental research and education located in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. To inquire about the position, send a statement of your interests and a CV to haynes [at] virginia.edu.
