Two funded assistantships starting January 2017 at the University of Georgia
will address conservation practices for the gopher tortoise, a species of
conservation concern in the southeast. Support will be provided to an M.S.
student (2.5 years) to investigate sampling design enhancements to improve
population assessment of juvenile tortoises. Support will be provided to a
PhD student (3 years) to investigate efficacy of financial incentives to
promote habitat and population outcomes on private lands. Full details on
both, including qualifications and application instructions may be found at
