MS/PhD positions in niche modeling at a community level
Department of Biology
Queens College, City University of New York

MS/PhD positions are available in the lab of Dr. Jose Anadon at Queens College, City University of New York. Research at Anadon Lab focuses on understanding the impact of global change on biodiversity. Research for these positions would i) address the importance of taking into account biotic interactions when modelling species assemblages (i.e. communities) by mean of niche modelling approaches, and ii) explore to what extent the inclusion of biotic interactions make a difference when predicting the impact of climate change on the distribution of multiple species. Research will take advantage of an extraordinaire database of plant species in North American deserts. Top applicants will receive year-round support through a combination of teaching and research assistantships.

Interested students should email jose.anadon@qc.cuny.edu with a cover letter and a CV (including GPA and GRE scores), well before submitting an official application to the graduate college (due: January 1st, 2015). For further information on pre-requisites and on the application process, see http://www.gc.cuny.edu/Prospective-Current-Students.
