There is a position available for a Master's student research assistantship, providing a 24-month stipend plus benefits and tuition waiver at the University of Massachusetts. The graduate student will work with the U.S. Geological Survey Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center, state fish and game agencies, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to inform Species Status Assessments for the endemic butterflies of the northeastern U.S. Ultimately, this project will inform natural resource management decisions related to land protection, invasive species treatment, recreation management, and a host of other conservation challenges.

The M.S. student will 1) work with a captive colony to perform ex-situ and in-situ experiments to complete the life history profile for both the White Mountain artic and the White Mountain Fritillary and test potential climate change impacts on overwintering survival; and 2) conduct mark recapture surveys and track female ovipositing in the wild.

The graduate student's advisor, Toni Lyn Morelli, is located (in pre/post-Covid time) on the campus of University of Massachusetts in Amherst, in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. This is a fantastic location, with a remarkable mix of college atmosphere (Smith, Mt Holyoke, and Amherst Colleges are also here), culture, and work-life balance. The fellow will be part of a vibrant Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (NE CASC) community (necsc.umass.edu) and co-located with USGS scientists. The NE CASC mission is to work with natural and cultural resource managers in the Northeast and Midwest regions to use climate science to inform decisions and co-produce information and tools for climate change adaptation.

Qualifications:
Applicant must have completed a B.S. or B.A. by May 2021, preferably related to ecology, environmental science, or resource management. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience working with butterflies or other insects, performing work in challenging field conditions including long days of hiking in rapidly changing weather/high elevation, and analyzing population data. Other important qualifications are a strong work ethic, problem-solving and time management skills, creativity, an ability to work independently, and a track record of publications. Black, indigenous and other applicants of color highly encouraged.

To be considered for this position, please send a cover letter outlining your interests, research background, and relevant experience; a curriculum vitae; and contact information for 3 professional references (name, email, phone, address) combined in a single PDF file with the file name formatted as lastname_firstname to Toni Lyn Morelli at morelli@umass.edu.
