STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE UNIVERSITY: Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture
Graduate Research Assistant (PhD.): Ecology and Conservation of Amphibians
The Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture at Stephen F. Austin State University has a T.L.L. Temple graduate assistantship for a doctoral student to begin in 2020 with a flexible start date. The position is funded for three years ($25,000/year), and will be based in the research group of Dr. Christopher Schalk (https://cmschalk.weebly.com/) that focuses on understanding organization and function of ecological communities and the effects of global and anthropogenic change on these systems. Although the State of Texas does not allow for direct tuition waivers, out-of-state students awarded assistantships only pay the Texas resident tuition rate. To further help defray tuition costs, $2,000 scholarships are also available through this program for qualified students. In addition to research, there also will be opportunities for the candidate to gain teaching experience.
