M.S. Assistantship in Social-Ecological Systems - Nebraska Cooperative 
Fish and Wildlife Research Unit within the School of Natural Resources 
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team that aims 
to understand spatial and temporal patterns and dynamics in a social-
ecological system.  The Valentine National Wildlife Refuge (VNWR), 
located in north-central Nebraska, represents an important social-
ecological system that is managed for multiple purposes and visitors.  
However, it is unclear how visitors may differ in their spatial and 
temporal use of the VNWR.  The successful candidate will 1) quantify 
visitor use within this tractable system, 2) identify the types of 
visitors and how they use the VNWR, and 3) explore spatial and temporal 
interactions among visitors across the VNWR landscape.  Data will be 
collected using a suite of on- and off-site methods.  Individuals 
interested in social-ecological systems, landscape ecology, behavioral 
ecology, environmental sciences, and social sciences are encouraged to 
apply.  Collaboration with agency, academic, and general public entities 
will be required.  Applicants must hold a valid driver’s license and 
pass a university drivers background check.  Please email a single 
document including a letter of interest, CV, unofficial transcripts and 
GRE scores, and contact information for three references to Dr. Mark 
Kaemingk (mkaemin...@unl.edu) and Dr. Kevin Pope (kpo...@unl.edu).  
Applications will be reviewed when received and the position will remain 
open until filled.  Expected start date of January 2018.
