Last Date to Apply
The Breuner lab at the University of Montana in Missoula is looking to
recruit a Ph.D. student in a collaborative project with Dr. Blake Hossack
Dr. Breuner and Dr. Hossack have funding to support a PhD project examining
the effects of brine contamination in wetlands from energy development in
the northern Great Plains. The student’s research will complement existing
USGS research projects on the effects of brine contamination on amphibian
communities, but the student will have latitude to design their own
questions focused around amphibian stress physiology and toxicology,
habitat use, and survival or reproductive success. Applicants with
experience in physiological ecology and/or population modeling techniques
are encouraged to apply.
The PhD position is set up as half-time RA and half-time TA, and has
funding for summer support and lab expenses.
Applicants with experience in physiological ecology and/or population
modeling techniques are encouraged to apply.
Interested students are encouraged to email Dr. Breuner (
creagh.breu...@umontana.edu) and Dr. Hossack (blake_hoss...@usgs.gov).
Please include a brief description of your research interests and a CV in
your email. Note that applications for Fall 2017 admission to the Wildlife
Biology program must be submitted by January 15th at the latest.
Dr. Creagh Breuner, Dr. Blake Hossack
