Current Opportunities

The Belovsky Lab is currently hiring for the following positions:

Undergraduate research assistant: Undergraduate will help conduct experiments with brine shrimp and phytoplankton for the Great Salt Lake project. Responsibilities may also include maintaining brine shrimp, brine fly, and phytoplankton populations. The hours are flexible but some weekend work may be needed. No previous research experience is necessary, but reliability and attention to detail are essential.

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.
