A Master’s research position with a Research Assistantship is available beginning Fall 2015 in the Corey-Rivas Lab at New Mexico Highlands University. Our Molecular Ecology Lab focuses on reptile and amphibian
conservation genetics issues in the Southwest (see http://nmhumolecularecology.weebly.com/). The Master’s research will investigate immunogenetic variation associated with susceptibility to Bd infection in Boreal Toads of the Southern Rockies at a landscape scale. Students in the Corey-Rivas lab gain experience in applied,
multidisciplinary conservation research in collaboration with academic and non-academic agencies.
