Current Opportunities

The Belovsky Lab is currently hiring for the following positions:

and 

FULL-TIME RESEARCH TECHNICIAN: GRASSHOPPER ECOLOGY PROJECT IN WESTERN MONTANA - location is ND campus and National Bison Range, Charlo, MT 

Potential Graduate Students

I give preference to students who plan to obtain their Ph.D., either students who have a Master’s already, or students who wish to enter graduate school directly into a Ph.D. program. I also prefer that students have some modeling background as well as a strong foundation in ecology. 

As a rule, I do not have specific projects for students, and encourage students to develop their own, based on their interests. There may be openings in ongoing projects or a graduate student can work on related projects of their own chosing.

Please contact Gary Belovsky (belovsky.1@nd.edu) for more information.
