Graduate Opportunities (updated
As part of a collaborative research effort between the US Forest
Service (Pacific Northwest Experiment Station, the Chugach National
Forest), Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and the University
of Alaska Anchorage, we invite applications from highly motivated
and quantitatively-oriented individuals seeking an MS or a PhD in
Biology to fill two graduate assistantships (split research and
teaching assistantships) at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
The project on which both graduate students will be working is a
comparative nutritional ecology study on the famous Nelchina Basin
and the Kenai Peninsula of Southcentral Alaska. The two linked studies
will focus on the foraging ecology of moose and caribou on selected
sites of both ranges using tame animals, and on the nutritional
characterization of their ranges and diets. For more information,

Undergraduate Research Opportunities
We are currently recruiting for one or perhaps two undergraduate
technicians for work in the laboratory this fall and spring semester.
The work will consist of the preparation of samples for nutritional
analysis, and, depending upon the laboratory skills of the individual,
may include the chemical analysis of forages, and/or working with
our captive moose in Palmer on digestive physiology. Contact me
for more information on the positions.
