The Stutchbury lab offers a
collegial and friendly environment for graduate studies, where students
learn the skills they need for posing interesting questions, writing
manuscripts, giving conference presentations, and critical reading of
scientific papers. The research emphasis is broad, covering conservation
biology, ecology, and behavioural ecology of birds. Students use cutting-edge tools
such as radiotelemetry, DNA testing and hormone analyses as part of
their field research. The Molecular Ecology Lab is well equipped with
state-of-the-art equipment for analyzing paternity and genetic variation
and students with no experience are taught how to do their own lab work.
Field studies are currently conducted in Ontario, Pennsylvania, Costa
Rica, and Panama.
If you are interested in
joining the lab please send a detailed letter of interest, your resume
and contact information for three references.
