Colorado State University calls application for Postdoctoral Fellowship. The postdoctoral fellow will work with Prof. Mevin Hooten at CSU and collaborators at the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and Oregon State University to develop statistical models that integrate several data sources and improve our understanding of Lesser Prairie-Chicken populations.

Fellowship Unit

The Unit works toward three basic objectives: research, education, and technical assistance. The Unit emphasizes research related to specific management problems where results have a high probability of being applied. The program remains flexible to reflect changing cooperator needs. The long-term fishery effort emphasizes a diversity of applied management projects having broad state-wide and regional applicability. The wildlife component of the Unit emphasizes sampling and analysis of quantitative methodologies for management. The fisheries and wildlife activities are diverse and integrated with Unit cooperators. The results of the research are transferred through formal graduate teaching and technical extension.
