The Stevens Lab, in the Department of Natural Resources Management at Texas
Tech University, is accepting applications for a graduate student
position.  Opportunities exist for either a Ph.D. or M.S. student.  The
graduate student would be supported on a grant from the Texas Department of
Transportation.  Responsibilities would be to conduct a survey to inform a
study on the use by bats of highway structures in the Trans-Pecos region of
Texas.  In particular, the study aims to identify the relative
contributions of highway structure characteristics, habitat, landscape
structure and land-use on roosting behavior of bats.  Other
responsibilities would include data management, including incorporating
data into a GIS and report writing.  This research will allow abundant
opportunities for research in both applied and basic community and
population ecology.  Those interested should contact Richard Stevens at
