The Castro-Santos Lab at the USGS’ S.O. Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center (CAFRC) is seeking a highly qualified applicant for a funded PhD position in behavioral ecology of river herring. The study focuses on freshwater migration of alewife, with particular emphasis on responses to predators at migratory barriers. Qualified candidates should have strong academic and quantitative skills and be adept at field work including boat work in the near-shore marine environment.
Thanks again for getting back to us. The contest is pretty simple and easy to enter, and could help students get their ideas funded and/or recognized, in turn boosting their resume/portfolio. It would also be nice to get on a call to talk about how we can get UW students involved, just let us know when you’re available.
Quick recap of the contest:
MOHAI (the Museum of History and Industry) is holding an innovation contest on Twitter.
The CONFORWest 2014 graduate student conference is approaching and we would like to encourage graduate students from Canada and the United States to participate in this unique opportunity. CONFORWest is an annual conference for graduate and senior level undergraduate students, who are studying environmental sciences, forestry, and other natural resource management fields (including social sciences and humanities). It is organized by graduate students from northwestern North America, who hope to provide a unique and comfortable forum for discussing future challenges in resource management fields, while building networks with peers.
I am looking for a strong candidate for a postdoc funded by the AXA Research Fund, to join my group at the University of South Bohemia, Ceske Budejovice (Budweis). This opportunity arose just recently and the deadlines are upcoming. Perhaps you know people that would be interested. Apologies for any cross-postings.
The candidate should have a strong modelling and/or quantitative background in mathematics, ecology, evolution or a related field and interest in community ecology and/or evolutionary ecology.

Scholars’ Studio is hosted by the UW Libraries Research Commons and the UW Graduate School. Last year, we hosted a successful Scholars’ Studio series that included “Citizen”, Disaster, and Pacific Northwest as our themes and had fabulous rapid-fire presentations from students in over 20 disciplines. This year, our themes are “Worlds Collide” (Fall), “Robot” (Winter) and “Predictions” (Spring).
