Hi All,

MS graduate position and assistantship available: Human dimensions; black
bears; management strategies

I seek a prospective student interested in pursuing a Masters of Science
degree in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at
University of Connecticut beginning January 2017.  The project and graduate
assistantship is related to human dimensions of wildlife, with particular
focus on black bears and black bear management strategies.  Applicants
should have: 1) a background in wildlife management, human dimensions of
natural resources, and/or landscape ecology, or a related field, 2)
interest in applied research focused on human dimensions of natural
resources, landscape ecology, and spatial analysis, and 3) the ability to
work both independently and as part of a research team.  The student will
be expected to present research results at professional conferences,
publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific outlets, and pursue
extramural funding to supplement their assistantship, as appropriate.  Some
experience with social science research and a working knowledge of GIS are
preferred, but not required.

Interested students are encouraged to send 1) a brief cover letter
describing their professional background, relevant research experience and
interests, career goals, and reasons for seeking a Masters degree, 2) names
and contact information for three references, 3) a current curriculum
vitae, and 4) copies of transcripts and GRE scores directly to me (Anita
Morzillo; anita.morzi...@uconn.edu) as a single *.pdf document.

Unofficial copies of transcripts and GRE scores are fine for initial
contact.  GRE scores must be less than five years old.  Potential students
must have received a GPA equivalent to a 3.0/4.0 on their last 90 term (or
60 semester) hours of their Bachelors program.  *Do not submit materials to
the UConn Graduate School at this time*.

Applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received, but materials
must be received before *20 October 2016*.

Interested individuals may learn more about my research program at
