The McCune lab at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, is looking for graduate students or postdoctoral fellows interested in plant ecology and plant conservation in Canada.
Potential projects include: analyzing the influence of habitat amount on the probability of occurrence of rare species, measuring genetic variation between isolated rare plant populations, modeling habitat suitability for rare plants across a landscape, and experimental rare plant translocations. Some projects require fieldwork while others involve GIS or lab-based work only. Fieldwork will occur primarily in southern Ontario or in southern Alberta.
The University of Lethbridge is a smaller University with a vibrant community of scientists. Lethbridge is a very affordable and friendly city only 2.5 hours from Calgary, and only 1.5 hours from stunning mountain Parks, including Waterton Lakes National Park and Castle Wilderness Provincial Park.
If you are interested, please email Jenny McCune (jl.mccune (at) uleth.ca) and tell me about your research interests and experiences. Include your CV and unofficial transcripts.
I am committed to diversity and inclusion and I welcome applications from students with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences.
