The Bahlai Lab is open for business!
We’re looking for enthusiastic, driven people to join us in beautiful, changeable and affordable Kent Ohio, near the Cleveland metropolitan area and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Graduate students: I am currently inviting applications for a PhD student to start in Fall 2020 for a project examining how to study long-term processes like restoration through ‘soft data’ or crowd-sourced approaches. Prospective students should combine an interest in running field experiments, citizen science projects, data science and database management, programming, and being as interdisciplinary as all get out. Insect and/or plant identification skills are an asset. A drive to make, whether it’s designing new tools for monitoring ecological parameters or developing software to process vast quantities of data, is essential. A commitment to participatory science and communication of your work to public and academic audiences is indispensable.
Project specifics will be defined by our mutual interests, stipends are highly competitive and come with a full tuition waiver, and quality of life is pretty good here. Here’s the official program information. If you’re interested in my work and have ideas, drop me a line! Application deadlines are in December!
Postdocs: I do not have funds for a postdoc at this time. If you’re interested in the Bahlai Lab for a postdoc, please contact me and we can explore potential funding sources.
