MSc opportunity, rattlesnake road-ecology work in British Columbia

We anticipate an opening for an MSc student continuing work on the road-ecology of a population of Western Rattlesnakes in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia.   We are looking for someone with a genuine, demonstrated interest in animal ecology, rather than solely a fascination with snakes.   We anticipate an early-April start date in the field, although there likely will  be opportunity to do some advanced work (with pay) prior to the spring emergence of snakes.

Inquiries and/or statements of interest from prospective students should be directed to Karl Larsen at Thompson Rivers University.   Following that, an unofficial copy of transcripts along with a Cv (providing references) will be needed.
