Welcome to the Behavioral & Community Ecology, Conservation Biology Group, College of Forestry, University of Guangxi!
We are interested in studying aspects of animal behavior and community ecology that have implications for conservation, especially for tropical and subtropical China.
Three-year MSc and PhD positions available in Animal Ecology and Conservation Biology at Guangxi University, Nanning, China.
We are excited to offer opportunities to do three-year MSc or PhD projects in animal ecology and related fields. Our faculty offer a variety of expertise and interests in animal behavior, breeding and nesting ecology, ecotoxicology, landscape ecology, natural resource management, socioeconomic influences on conservation, species interaction networks, and urban ecology.
The degrees are granted through our International Training Program, and academic work is in English. Students apply with a March 31 2017 deadline to the China Government Scholarship (CGS) program, as well as to the College of Forestry; CGS provides waivers of tuition and housing fees, and a monthly stipend. In the first year, students take courses in basic Chinese language and in Chinese culture. In addition, courses in professional classes related to ecology and evolution are required to graduate (4 for PhD, 7 for MSc), as well as successful completion of the thesis project.
Applicants are required to have their previous degree completely finished at the time of application. We are looking for students who have experience in fieldwork and species identification. Applicants with a proven track record of successful publication in peer-reviewed journals, or advanced quantitative or programming skills, will have an advantage. We hope that candidates will explore the research interests of our faculty (Goodale, Jiang, Lee, Mammides) and then begin to think about possible projects that match both student’s and advisor’s backgrounds. Applicants should contact the faculty member who is closest to their interests, attaching a CV and the e-mail addresses of three references. Review of applications will start immediately, and we will select only those who have contacted us and interactively discussed projects.
