The research group of Dr. Sydne Record (https://sydnerecord.blogs.brynmawr.edu/ – relocating to UMaine in Fall 2022) seeks applicants for a M.S. position in Wildlife Ecology or Ecology and Environmental Sciences at the University of Maine in Orono in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Conservation Biology. Our research group focuses on population and community ecology from a biogeographical perspective.
They are also seeking qualified applicants for a Ph.D. position that will focus on the migration ecology of American woodcock. As a component of their dissertation research, the student will coordinate a large-scale collaborative research project that seeks to better understand woodcock migration throughout eastern North America.
A Postdoc position is also available to work in the labs of Alessio Mortelliti (alessiomortelliti.weebly.com) and Cyndy Loftin (https://www1.usgs.gov/coopunits/staff/479866). The position is focused on developing adaptive protocols for monitoring mammals as they respond to climate and land use change in the Northeast USA.
